Available Options

The Gilza Plus(Polydioxanone-PDO) is a synthetic absorbable monofilament surgical suture material prepared from polyester poly (dioxanone). 

The Gilza Plus suture is covered with Chlorhexidine diacetate (CHA), it provides both significant antimicrobial activity and low toxicity and sticks well to the skin or mucous membrane.


Chlorhexidine diacetate shows high antibacterial activity against various fungi, virus and bacteria, especially gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, yeast fungi, skin parasites, lipophilic virus.


Chlorhexidine diacetate has a well-established safety profile, it’s quite commonly used for oral rinses and skin cleaners for human. Exposure to Chlorhexidine diacetate from our sutures is minimal, the Chlorhexidine diacetate of our anti-bacterial sutures is 20 ~ 75 ppm (0.0020% ~ 0.0075%) 

Type of thread


Reabsorption time

  • Reliable absorbability by hydrolysis.
  • Predictable absorption (loss of mass) and high in vivo strength retention. 
  • Average 75% of the original tensile strength at 2 weeks.
  • Average 70% of the original tensile strength at 4 weeks.
  • Average 50% of the original tensile strength at 6 weeks.
  • Predictable absorption (loss of mass) in 180 to 220 days.

Benefits of the Suture

  • Compliance with the requirements of EP
  • Lower Incidence of Infection and Trauma due to Smooth Surface
  • Smooth tissue passage
  • Protection against surgical site infection
  • Predictable loss and Higher strength compared to Catgut

Chemical Composition Poly(p-dioxanone), Chlorhexidine diacetate
Thread Colour Violet
Mass absorption Degradation by hydrolysis within 180 - 220 days
Sterilization Ethylene oxide
Absorption Profile Average 75% retained tensile strength at 14 days Average 65% retained tensile strength at 28 days Average 50% retained tensile strength at 42 days
Applications General soft tissue approximation including use in paediatric cardiovascular tissue where growth is expected to occur and in ophthalmic surgery. These sutures are particularly useful where the combination of an absorbable suture and extended wound support (up to six weeks) is desirable Contraindications Approximation of tissue under tension an suturing of synthetic implant like vascular grafts or cardiac valves
