INDICATIONS FOR USE
GEM Microsuture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in microsurgical, cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures.

ACTIONS
GEM Microsuture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue.

TENSILE STRENGTH
As with any nylon suture, though not absorbed, progressive hydrolysis of the suture in vivo may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time. Nylon suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.

STERILIZATION
Ethylene oxide.
