*Please select more than one item to compare This was done by placing bone marrow stem cells into a PGA tube, and observing for neural regenerative effects. These sheets were first used only for soft tissues, and have since been used on hard tissues as well. Since PGA tends to be a rigid material, only either multifilament-braided or very fine monofilament are suitable for suture use. 26009-03-0 - Polyglycolic acid [USAN:INN:BAN] - Similar structures search, synonyms, formulas, resource links, and other chemical information. Before packaging, all Dexon sutures are subjected to heat under vacuum to remove residual unreacted monomers or very low molecular weight volatile oligomers (Casey and Lewis, 1986; Glick and McPherson, 1967). due to crystallization of PGA in the case of shaping in combination with another thermoplastic polymer. It was found that the breaking stress decreased from 6.369 × 10 −1 at 0 day to 3.97 × 10 −3 Newton/Tex at 49 days. There are a variety of Dexon sutures. Chu, in Biotextiles as Medical Implants, 2013. In practice, PGA has been used in an effort to enhance facial nerve regeneration. reported successful regeneration across an 80-mm nerve gap in dog peroneal nerve with the use of a PGA conduit.110 PGA conduits also were used in human nerve reconstruction. The vessel walls engineered under the dynamic stimulation for 8 weeks showed a dense and well-organized structure similar to that of native vessels. PGA for sutures is polymerized from the cyclic dimer of α-hydroxyacetic acid, more commonly called glycolic acid. PGA has also been shown to have excellent short-term stability in ambient conditions, and it is known to biodegrade within approximately 12 months. Sutures are stitches that doctors and surgeons, use to hold skin, internal organs, blood vessels, and all other tissues of the human body together, after the injury, incision, or surgery. From: Principles of Regenerative Medicine (Second Edition), 2011, Anson J. Tsugawa, Frank J.M. They include organometallic compounds and Lewis acids. The degradation rate of these polymers is determined by initial molecular weight, exposed surface area, crystallinity and ratio of different monomers [e.g. The majority of recent studies utilize PGA as a filler material integrated into other degradable polymers. The Global Polyglycolic Acid Market is expected to register a CAGR of 10.45 % to reach USD 1,989,577.9 Thousand by 2030.. Polyglycolic acid (PGA) is a biodegradable and thermoplastic polymer, widely used as a surgical suture material owing to high tensile strength, tissue reactivity, hydrolytic stability, and excellent knotting ability. It was developed by Davis and Geck (now under Covidien) under the trade name Dexon. P(CL/LA), 75: 25 and 50: 50)]. PGA is the simplest form of liner aliphatic polyesters, a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer used in many different tissue engineering applications. E.M. Prieto, S.A. Guelcher, in Biomedical Foams for Tissue Engineering Applications, 2014. Various types of sutures. Cell seeded PGA scaffolds formed repair structures with adequate mechanical properties when implanted subcutaneously in nude mice.158 A PGA-PET device has also been shown to provide adequate strength to use for tendon repairs, but have not demonstrated any notable advantages to currently available materials.66, Xiaoyan Tang, ... Xiaojun Yu, in Natural and Synthetic Biomedical Polymers, 2014. polyglycolic acid (plural polyglycolic acids) ( organic chemistry ) A biodegradable, thermoplastic polymer formed from glycolic acid monomers Synonyms [ edit ] It has excellent mechanical properties and is rapidly degraded into lactic acid. PGA has been known since 1954 as a tough fiber-forming polymer. However, the production of PGA remains so far extremely expensive. In addition, it has been found that many additives such as a catalyst deactivator, a nucleating agent, a plasticizer, and an antioxidant deteriorate the melt stability of PGA. The increase in popul… The SMCs derived from hASCs were seeded in polyglycolic acid (PGA) unwoven mesh and the cell-scaffold complex were subjected to pulsatile stimulation in a bioreactor for 8 weeks. The heat of fusion of 100% crystallized PGA is reported to be 12 KJ/mol (45.7 cal/g). It is a biodegradable polymer whose fibers exhibit high strength and modulus. Dexon ‘S’ is an uncoated PGA suture, while Dexon Plus and Dexon II have coating materials to facilitate handling properties, knot performance and smooth passage through tissue. The new process will allow the mass production of PGA on an industrial scale, while the reduced cost of PGA production will permit various applications to utilize its characteristics. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) provoked fibroblasts (incubated with composite PGA-α-MSH) demonstrated a late occasion of IL-10, an early time dependent arrest of TNF-alpha, and no effect was found on IL-8 excretion [113]. This spacer is made of non-woven fabric polyglycolic acid (PGA) with high water absorbency. The crystalline PGA can provide an amorphous PGA sheet by, for example, melt processing it into the form of a sheet and quenching the resultant sheet (2008, WO2008004490; 2009, WO2009107425 A1, KUREHA CORP). Polyglycolic acid sheets were used in conjunction with fibrin glue spray as an open wound healing material for soft tissues as well as bone surfaces during oral surgery. The hydrolytic degradation of polyglycolic acid (PGA) was studied by examining the changes of tensile strength and the level of crystallinity of the suture material. Polyglycolide or poly(glycolic acid) (PGA), also spelled as polyglycolic acid, is a biodegradable, thermoplastic polymer and the simplest linear, aliphatic polyester. It has a modulus around 12.8 GPa [156]. Polyglycolic acid is absorbed by hydrolysis with less associated tissue inflammation than silk, plain or chromic catgut.35 The median survival time of polyglycolic acid in the oral mucosa is 15 days (16 to 20).30,35 The initial tensile strength of polyglycolic acid exceeds that of silk and gut, but is decreased appreciably when placed in oral tissue.36 The handling characteristics of polyglycolic acid are favorable, similar to silk, but its knot security is poor.37 Polyglycolic acid also has a tendency to cut through friable tissue, which is not a favorable quality for suturing gingival tissues.21 Polyglycolic acid has been shown to inhibit bacterial transmission due to the release of monomers.37, Alexander T. Trott MD, in Wounds and Lacerations (Fourth Edition), 2012. The immense utility of many of these polymers were over looked due to their degradation via hydrolysis. As an adhesive, PGA was combined with fibrin sealant to create a very successful tissue adhesive. The polyesters are the most studied class group due the susceptible ester linkage in their backbone. S.S. Shetye, ... L.J. Transfer structure to query page; Find similar structures; Na + Find parent, salts, and hydrates; Enlarge the structure; Substance Name: Polyglactin 370 [USAN] RN: 26780-50-7. This was done by placing bone marrow stem cells into a PGA tube, and observing for neural regenerative effects. The fibrous polyglycolic acid have been used as monofilament, braided form or in mesh structure. It is a braided, synthetic absorbable suture made from a synthetic homopolymer of glycolic (hydroacetic) acid.26 Dexon II has a coating of polycaprolate which enhances its handling characteristics by reducing the coefficient of friction. PLA) are known as “ bioplastics.” Further, PGA has insufficient melt stability and has a tendency to easily generate gasses upon its melt processing. Despite these applications, PGA has limitations as its rapid degradation compromises its mechanical strength, and could potentially cause an undesirable inflammatory response due to the resulting increase of glycolic acid (Ulery et al., 2011). The chemical structure of PGA can be seen in Fig. 16. In the studies conducted thus far, PGA has been shown promising results for producing nerve graft structures (Costa et al., 2013). We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Nerve grafting is a very complex process, and is still in the early stages of research. Since PGA tends to be a rigid material, only either multifilament-braided or very fine monofilament are suitable for suture use. This ap … 3. material used in closing a wound with stitches. This composite can also diminish the inflammatory condition of LPS restorative dental pulp fibroblasts seen during gram negative bacterial infections. Plastics that are derived from biomass (e.g. Verstraete, in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Dogs and Cats, 2012, Polyglycolic acid is a multifilament suture material derived from a homopolymer of glycolic acid (hydroxyacetic acid), and is available uncoated (Dexon S, U.S. Surgical, Norwalk, CT) or coated (Dexon II, U.S. Surgical, Norwalk, CT) with polycaprolate, a copolymer of glycolide and ε-caprolactone. PGA has orthorhombic unit cell with dimensions a = 5.22 Å, b = 6.19 Å, and c (fiber axis) = 7.02 Å. NeuroTube was approved by the FDA in 1999 for human use in the United States. PGA has been fabricated into a variety of forms for sutures. PGA is commonly incorporated into scaffolds for various tissue engineering applications such as bone, tendon, cartilage, tooth, and spinal regeneration. (A) Sheets of PGA were cut into small pieces (5–10 mm wide) and (B) approximately 3–10 pieces were used to cover each wound. On the other hand, only α-MSH alone arrests this proliferation. Polyglycolic acid; CAS Number: 26009-03-0; Synonym: PGA, Poly(2-hydroxyacetic acid); find Sigma-Aldrich-46746 MSDS, related peer-reviewed papers, technical documents, similar products & … Ohan S. Manoukian, ... Sangamesh G. Kumbar, in Encyclopedia of Biomedical Engineering, 2019. The crystalline PGA has a small temperature difference (Tc1 − Tg) between a crystallization temperature Tc1 (detected in the course of heating of its amorphous substance by means of DSC) and the Tg thereof. PGA has proved to be highly biocompatible in most of its applications. The PGA adheres to the wound successfully and helps prevent postoperative bleeding as well as inspire epithelialization. Various methods, such as extrusion, injection, compression molding, particulate leaching, and solvent casting, are some of the techniques used to develop polyglycolide-based structures for biomedical applications [158]. The attractiveness of PGA as a biopolymer in medical applications is due to the fact that its degradation product, glycolic acid, is a natural metabolite.70, Michael Niaounakis, in Biopolymers: Processing and Products, 2015. It is a copolymer macromolecule and a polyester macromolecule. Dellon et al. PGA has orthorhombic unit cell with dimensions a = 5.22 Å, b = 6.19 Å, and c (fiber axis) = 7.02 Å. Additionally, PGA is known for its hydrolytic instability. Degradation studies have shown that the polymer loses its strength due to hydrolysis in 1–2 months, and loses mass within 6–12 months (Nair and Laurencin, 2007). The fibers are stretched to several hundred percent of their original length at a temperature above its glass transition temperature (about 36 °C), heat-set to improve dimensional stability and inhibit shrinkage, and subsequently braided into final multifilament braid suture forms of various sizes. Owing to its hydrolytic instability, however, its use has initially been limited. The combination of the PGA and fibrin created a much stronger sealant than any other biomaterial combination (Shinya et al., 2009). When the melt stability of PGA is insufficient, forming or molding conditions such as forming or molding temperature are limited to narrow ranges, and the quality of the resulting formed or molded product is easy to be deteriorated (2003, WO2003037956 A1, KUREHA CHEMICAL IND CO LT). Hydrolytically unstable polymers are materials that have chemical bonds in their backbone that are susceptible to hydrolysis without an external influence. All over the world. Surgical sutures made of PGA tend to lose their mechanical strength over a period of 2–4 weeks post-implantation, whereas PLA sutures require more than a year to lose their tensile strength. The specific gravities of PGA are 1.707 for a perfect crystal and 1.50 for a completely amorphous material (Chujo et al., 1967). These PGA sheets can be seen in Fig. 17 (Sakaguchi et al., 2015). USP 9/0 and 10/0 have monofilament structure, all … PGA is a crystalline polymer (45–55%) with a glass transition temperature close to body temperature (35–40 °C) and melting temperature between 225 °C and 230 °C depending on the molecular weight (Vaca-Garcia, 2008). Weber et al. In the studies conducted thus far, PGA has been shown promising results for producing nerve graft structures (Costa et al., 2013). They include organometallic compounds and Lewis acids. PGA is suitable for neural regeneration because it is absorbable and has FDA approval for nerve grafting (Anderson et al., 2015). PGA is a linear polymer of glycolic acid. PGA has a high crystallinity (45-55%), with a melting point of 220-225 °C and a glass transition temperature of 35-40 °C. PGA-Sutures retain approximately 70 % of its initial strength after two weeks. The manufacturer has modified PGA (Dexon Plus) by coating it with poloxamer 188, an agent that significantly reduces the friction and drag through tissues. reported 46 cases of PGA conduit implantation, 3 of which got extruded.48 Duncan and colleagues reported on a patient with a radial digital nerve that was bridged with PGA conduit, who, on postoperative week 4, was found to have extrusion of the conduit through the wound. Polyglycolic Acid PGA Surgical Sutures. Ohan S. Manoukian, ... Sangamesh G. Kumbar, in Encyclopedia of Biomedical Engineering, 2019. It can be processed by extrusion, injection, and compression molding, but its processing window between its melting and degradation temperatures is extremely narrow. The polymer materials of polylactic acid (PLA), polyglycolic acid (PGA), and poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) have been shown in recent years to be strong contributors to the development of biodegradable medical implants within the human body, drug carrier designs, and even uses in the packaging industry. Dexon suture fibers are made by the melt spinning of PGA chips. The chemical structure of PGA can be seen in Fig. 16. Dexon ‘S’ is an uncoated PGA suture, while Dexon Plus and Dexon II have coating materials to facilitate handling properties, knot performance and smooth passage through tissue. The mechanism of polymerization is believed to be cationic melt polymerization if stannous chloride dihydrate (in the presence of alcohol) is used, or nucleophilic attack of a carbanion on one of the glycolide carbonyls if the trialkyl aluminum is used. Nerve grafting is a very complex process, and is still in the early stages of research. The end products of breakdown do not provide growth materials for bacteria.29,30 Polyglycolic acid has been reported to be unsuitable for use in the oral cavity or in the presence of infected urine as the alkaline pH increases its rate of breakdown.29,30 It is suitable for use where extended approximation of tissues under stress is not required, such as intestinal anastomosis or a cesarean section.31,32, H. Kurobe, ... T. Shinoka, in Cardiac Regeneration and Repair, 2014, PGA, PLA and their co-polymers are the most widely used synthetic degradable polymers in medicine. The majority of recent studies utilize PGA as a filler material integrated into other degradable polymers. Glycolic acid is the resulting degradation product, and it can be secreted in urine or as carbon dioxide and water after being processed in the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA) (Nair and Laurencin, 2007; Vaca-Garcia, 2008). From: Nanoengineered Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine, 2019, D. Gorth, T. J Webster, in Biomaterials for Artificial Organs, 2011. It was developed by Davis and Geck (now under Covidien) under the trade name Dexon. Fiber form will hold substantial demand by 2024, in the medical industry for usage in sutures, stents, scaffolds, adhesion barrier reinforcement, in artificial dura, etc. Another consequence of the hydrophilicity of PGA is its comparatively rapid degradation time. PGA has a high crystallization temperature Tc2 (detected in the course of its cooling from a molten state by means of a differential scanning colorimeter, DSC) and a relatively small temperature difference (Tm − Tc2) between Tm and the crystallization temperature Tc2 thereof. Hydrolytically unstable polymers are materials that have chemical bonds in their backbone that are susceptible to hydrolysis without an external influence. PGA can be polymerized either directly or indirectly from glycolic acid. Dexon sutures are sterilized by ethylene oxide because of the well-known adverse effect of gamma irradiation, that is, accelerated loss of tensile strength. For this reason, some experience is required to pass this material properly through tissues and to “seat” the throws during knotting. compared PGA conduits and autogenous vein grafts for both short (<10 mm) and long (>10 mm) digital nerve defects and found no difference in meaningful recovery between the two groups.70 A documented disadvantage of the NeuroTube is the extrusion of the conduit even in healthy-looking tissues. Polyglycolic acid (PGA) was one of the initial, degradable polymers researched for biomedical application. PGA is a biodegradable, thermoplastic polymer which exhibits high strength and modulus with particular stiffness (Chu, 1981). It retains 89% of its tensile strength at 7 days, 63% at 14 days, 17% at 21 days, and is completely absorbed by 90–120 days.28 Dexon loses its functional properties faster and has a lower knot breaking strength compared to Vicryl.9, Dexon is broken down by hydrolysis rather than enzymatic breakdown, thus leading to less tissue reaction and delayed absorption compared to surgical gut. A commonly used technique for protein encapsulation in microspheres is the double-emulsion method wherein an initial water-in-oil (w/o) emulsion of protein and polymer is formed via sonication, and then a second emulsion (w/o)/w is formed by dispersion in an aqueous phase via homogenization. Numerous catalysts are available for this ring opening polymerization. The study concluded that in nerve defects of less than 40 mm, NeuroTube provided significantly better return of sensory function than direct suture repair.48 Efforts to extend the use of PGA to larger nerve defects and motor nerves were undertaken by Rosson et al., who bridged median nerve defects (15–40 mm) and reported meaningful recovery in all patients.111 Subsequent studies comparing PGA to other methods of nerve repair found PGA to perform equally, if not better. Numerous catalysts are available for this ring opening polymerization. In addition to degradation by hydrolysis, PGA also undergoes enzymatic degradation in vivo (Ulery et al., 2011; Clark and Deswarte, 2011). In practice, PGA has been used in an effort to enhance facial nerve regeneration. CARESYN® is a multifilament, braided, sterile synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of 100% Polyglycolic Acid, coated with a copolymer of Poly (epsilon-caprolactone) and Calcium stearate. PGA's superior features over catgut are predictable absorption, outstanding tensile strength, invivo inertness and excellent handling properties. The first commercially available biodegradable synthetic suture approved by the FDA in the United States was DEXON. Dart, C.M. The combination of the PGA and fibrin created a much stronger sealant than any other biomaterial combination (Shinya et al., 2009). PGA can be processed by extrusion, injection, or compression molding, similar to most polyesters. The CAGR value, technological development, new product launches and Polyglycolic Acid Suture Industry competitive structure is elaborated. Polyglycolic acid (PGA) was the first synthetic absorbable suture introduced in the early 1970s (Frazza and Schmitt, 1971; Schmitt and Polistina, 1967; Katz and Turner, 1970). Although glycolic acid is a natural metabolite, high acidic concentrations generated during PGA degradation can adversely affect the surrounding tissue. The tight molecular packing and the close approach of the ester groups are thought to stabilize the crystal lattice and contribute to the high melting point of PGA (224 227 °C). Various PGA-MSH nanocomposites accelerate the starting of pulp connective tissue regeneration, resulting in adhesion and development of pulp fibroblasts. Frequently, an alcohol like lauryl alcohol is added into the polymerization to control the molecular weight. In the case of PGA, its hydrolytic instability can be attributed to the ester linkage in its backbone. Animal studies showed early support for PGA tubes as good alternatives to nerve grafts. Expired - Lifetime Application number … The specific gravities of PGA are 1.707 for a perfect crystal and 1.50 for a completely amorphous material (Chujo et al., 1967). PGA and its copolymers, most notably polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA), are commonly used synthetic polymers in many biomedical applications, including the synthesis of absorbable sutures for orthopedic use (Mogoşanu and Grumezescu, 2014). Additionally, PGA is known for its hydrolytic instability. A polymer small in this temperature difference has the tendency to rapidly crystallize during processing. The success in this area is basically due to biodegradable polymers. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Although handling has become easier with this modification, more throws (four to six) are required to prevent knot slippage than for plain PGA (three to four). Any absorbed moisture in the spacer exerts a shielding effect against proton beams. Search results for Polyglycolic acid at Sigma-Aldrich. COMPOSITION: CARESYN® RAPID is a multifilament, braided, sterile synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of 100% Polyglycolic Acid, coated with a copolymer of Poly (epsilon-caprolactone) and Calcium stearate. North America holds the highest market share in the global dissolvable sutures market owing to the higher adoption of technologically advanced products for surgical procedures […] PGA, PLA, and PDS are considered the three major polymers for bioabsorbable implants. Even though there are some reports of potential immunogenic responses when utilizing PGA, most applications have not caused any inflammatory reaction. It can be prepared starting from glycolic acid by means of polycondensation or ring-opening polymerization. PGA for sutures is polymerized from the cyclic dimer of α-hydroxyacetic acid, more commonly called glycolic acid. The industry trends, Polyglycolic Acid Suture Market trends, key drivers, major market segments and prospects are explained Polyglycolic acid (PGA) was one of the initial, degradable polymers researched for biomedical application. When compared with plain or chromic catgut, PGA is much less reactive and is experimentally better able to resist infection from contaminating bacteria.9 PGA has excellent knot security and maintains at least 50% of its tensile strength for 25 days.10 The main drawback of PGA is that it has a high friction coefficient and “binds and snags” when wet. There are a variety of Dexon sutures. Polylactic acid, or polylactide (PLA) is a thermoplastic polyester with backbone formula (C 3 H 4 O 2) n or [–C(CH 3)HC(=O)O–] n, formally obtained by condensation of lactic acid C(CH 3)(OH)HCOOH with loss of water (hence its name). In vivo, PGA degrades in 2 to 4 weeks, losing 60% of its mass during the first two weeks. PGA is suitable for neural regeneration because it is absorbable and has FDA approval for nerve grafting (Anderson et al., 2015). polyglycolic acid: [ soo´chur ] 1. sutura .
