The doctor performs examination and surgeries to the patients using different equipments. For examining the patients, the doctor uses different types of equipments. Thermometer is used to access temperature of the patient. The stethoscope is used to examine the blood pressure level of the patient. X-rays are used to diagnose the problem deeply. So, the surgeon also uses different instruments and equipments to perform the surgery. The equipments used for surgeries are clamp, scissors, retractors, needles, and sutures. The doctor uses sutures commonly during surgical process. It is a thread like substances along with a needle to bandage the wound. When a surgery is performed, the surrounding tissues and some tissues of the organs are wounded and need to be healed. So, a doctor performs suturing to heal and close the wound. The doctor requires different types of surgical equipments and sutures to perform operations. The doctor also uses absorbable chromic catgut suture to heal certain types of surgeries.
Use of absorbable catgut suture
It is used to heal the operations of soft tissues in the body. It is used to close the wounds of the soft tissues after a surgery is performed. It is used for general surgical uses. It is usually used during the gastrointestinal surgery, ophthalmic surgery, or obstetric uses. It is a suture that is healed using salts of chromic acid. The person is usually treated twice and the person may experience inflammation after the suturing is done. The absorbable chromic catgut suture is an absorbable suture as the tissues absorb the stitches.
Catgut is a substance extracted from cows or sheep. The soft tissues and residues are extracted performing chemical stripping or any mechanical process. It is also used to treat patients with neural impairment problems. It is also used during the allergic rhinitis process. It is an absorbable suture and hence the body easily absorbs these stitches as the wound is healing. It is sterile equipment consisting of purified tissues such as collagen. It is extracted from the fibrous layers of animals such as sheep or cows. The healthy animals are also employed in the process. This catgut is also composed of collagen extracted from the serosal layers of bovines. As it is treated with chromium salts, the stitches are easily absorbed in the body.
Nature of the suture
It is a suture that is dark brown and usually may cause only moderate reaction. The suture consists of ethylene oxide and is used for different types of needles such as cutting edge, round bodied, blunt point, taper point, etc. It is known for its different properties. The catgut suture consists of a twisted structure consisting of high tensile strength. It is also easily absorbed by a substance known as phagocytosis. The catgut consists of centerless finishing. It is uniformly absorbed by the tissues. The surgeons can easily handle this equipment. The chromic catgut suture is used for healing wounds after performing different types of surgeries. It also closes the wounds safely without causing any adverse reaction. After performing the surgery, the tissues are also well-connected to each other.
