Tomsk Is Going To Produce Biodegradable Surgical Threads

The first production of surgical suture material made of polymers of glycolic acid and lactic acid, which is a direct analogue of catgut (bioresorbable string of purified animal tissue) is created in Tomsk, Russia.


University scientists were engaged in the developments of production technology of synthetic biopolymers based on glycolic acid for two years. Now prototypes threads run tests that will be completed by the end of this year. Since the beginning of 2014 the production of 100 kg surgical thread per year will start.
