GUNZE is the first company in Japan to produce PGA sutures.

This bioabsorbable (braided) suture for surgery uses PGA (polyglycolic acid) as a material. It looses half it's strength after 2 weeks by hydrolysis and is absorbed in approximately 15 weeks. Resolvent turning to CO₂ and water are excreted from the body degrades alleviate the burden on patients in which suture removal would not be required.
