Vilet Q is a fast-absorbing synthetic absorbable suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide (PGLA). The braid is coated with calcium stearate and the copolymer made from 30% glycolide and 70% L-lactide. Vilet Q™ is available dyed(violet) and undyed(beige).

Characteristics  
      Design to emulate the performance of Gut Sutures
      Excellent knot security and tie down
      Superb handling—Smooth Tissue Passage
      Reliable absorption profile
      Meets or exceeds the USP & EP requirements

Indications
Vilet Q™ braided coated suture is indicated for use in superficial soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa where only short-term wound support is required, but not for use in ligation, ophthalmic, cardiovascular or neurological procedures.

Actions
Vilet Q™ suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue. Tensile strength is a progressive loss that occurs by means of hydrolysis. Absorption of Vilet Q™ occurs when the copolymer degrades to glycolic and lactic acids which are subsequently absorbed and metabolized in the body.

Tensile Strength
Vilet Q™ (PGLA) suture retains approximately about 45% of the initial strength after 7 days

Absorption
Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without an appreciable loss of mass.  Absorption of Vilet Q™ sutures is essentially complete with in 42 days.

Sterilization
Ethylene oxide.

Packaging
Vilet Q™ (PGLA) suture is supplied sterile in precut lengths attached to various needle types in one dozen boxes, also available precut non-needled.
