What Is a PGA Suture?

A PGA suture, also known as a polyglycolic acid suture, is a specific type of medical suture, made from a polyfilament formation of polyglycolic acid. This is a commonly-used synthetic polymer suture which may be either undyed or dyed green to aid with visibility during the stitching process.

PGA sutures, like other types of surgical sutures, have a range of pros and cons which make them more or less suited to certain applications. They have minimal tissue reaction, which is a useful advantage for reducing the risk of any adverse reactions or excessive swelling, as well as decent tensile strength and handling, but aren't the best when it comes to knot security.

Because of these features, PGA sutures are best used on a subcutaneous level. They're commonly chosen by surgeons and doctors for repairing and stitching subcutaneous tissue around the body, proving useful for repairing incisions after surgery.

How Does a PGA Suture Work?

PGA sutures work just like any other kind of medical suture. First, the surgeon must choose the appropriate size of suture to work with, which will depend on the size and scale of the area that needs to be stitched up. Once the right size has been chosen, the PGA suture can be attached to a surgical needle and prepared for the stitching process. The surgeon will then use the needle and suture to stitch the wound or incision together, easing the healing process and reducing the risks of blood loss or infection.

PGA Suture Sizes 

Like other sutures, PGA sutures are available in a range of different sizes. Using the standard USP sizing system, some of the average sizes for PGA sutures range from 4-0, 3-0, 2-0, and 0. It’s also possible to find PGA sutures in various lengths.

PGA Suture Types

PGA sutures are a specific type of medical suture. They may be made by different brands and have slightly different brand names, like Dexon, but they're all relatively simple and made of the same materials, so there are not many different types of PGA sutures. There are, however, lots of other varieties of medical sutures, from nylon sutures to PDS sutures.

PGA Suture Uses

Like other sutures, PGA sutures are primarily used for stitching up wounds, lacerations and surgical incisions throughout the body. This particular type of suture is most commonly used on a subcutaneous level, which refers to wounds and surgical incisions below the skin. PGA sutures are ideal for stitching up incisions after an operation on the abdomen, for example. They also have gynecological and ophthalmic uses.

PGA Suture Suppliers

Some of the top suppliers of PGA sutures include Ailee, Ethicon, and Covidien.
