Polyglactin 910 suture in urinary tract.

Cystotomies in guinea pigs and ureteral anastomoses in dogs were sutured with polyglactin 910. Silk and chromic catgut were used as control sutures in the bladders and chromic catgut in the ureters. Three months postoperatively in bladders sutured with polyglactin 910 small epithelial cysts were noted, which increased in size with time. In ureters sutured with polyglactin 910 cystic diverticula were observed eight months postoperatively. Because of the difference of tissue reaction to polyglactin 910 compared with catgut, further long-term studies are urged in different species of animals, prior to the clinical use of polyglactin 910 in the urinary tract.[1]
