Schneider Allan K: Polylactide sutures. Ethicon, January 25, 1972: US3636956 (350 worldwide citation)

Absorbable surgical sutures that are dimensionally stable within the body may be prepared by the extrusion of polylactide polymer, including copolymers of L(-) lactide with up to 35 mole percent of glycolide. Said polymers are characterized by an inherent viscosity of at least 1.0, and the extruded ...
