However, the production of PGA remains so far extremely expensive. A polymer small in this temperature difference tends to crystallize upon cooling of a sheet or fiber extruded from such a polymer from its molten state and is difficult to provide a transparent formed product. Hydrolytically unstable polymers are materials that have chemical bonds in their backbone that are susceptible to hydrolysis without an external influence. Dermagraft® (Organogenesis, Canton, MA) is an example of a wound dressing which is composed of bioabsorbable polyglycolide-polylactide acid mesh scaffold. The combination of the PGA and fibrin created a much stronger sealant than any other biomaterial combination (Shinya et al., 2009). The specific gravities of PGA are 1.707 for a perfect crystal and 1.50 for a completely amorphous material (Chujo et al., 1967). 2 – CI 60725 or undyed in the natural beige color). PGA for sutures is polymerized from the cyclic dimer of α-hydroxyacetic acid, more commonly called glycolic acid. Plastics that are derived from biomass (e.g. 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. These PGA sheets can be seen in Fig. 17 (Sakaguchi et al., 2015). They include organometallic compounds and Lewis acids. 26009-03-0 - Polyglycolic acid [USAN:INN:BAN] - Similar structures search, synonyms, formulas, resource links, and other chemical information. For example, Battison and colleagues compared PGA nerve repair to nerve repair with autogenous vein grafts filled with muscle. The resulting PGA polymer having Mw from 20 000 to 140 000 is suitable for fiber extrusion and suture manufacturing. Manoukian, ... S.G. Kumbar, in Wound Healing Biomaterials, 2016. PGA conduits have yielded positive outcomes in both sensory and motor recovery in segmental nerve defects. 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). 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. 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 is the simplest form of liner aliphatic polyesters, a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer used in many different tissue engineering applications. The in vivo degradation of PGA is as follows: degradation and loss of material strength occurs around 1-2 months, with complete degradation of the total mass by 6 months [156]. (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. It is a copolymer macromolecule and a polyester macromolecule. 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. 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. In addition to degradation by hydrolysis, PGA also undergoes enzymatic degradation in vivo (Ulery et al., 2011; Clark and Deswarte, 2011). 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). 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. 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. From: Nanoengineered Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine, 2019, D. Gorth, T. J Webster, in Biomaterials for Artificial Organs, 2011. 2. a stitch or series of stitches made to secure apposition of the edges of a surgical or traumatic wound; used also as a verb to indicate application of such stitches. Its high crystallinity is the main factor leading to its low solubility in organic solvents [153,157]. Consequently, increasing the weight percent of PGA in a PLGA copolymer is one method to increase the wettability of a biomaterial made from PLGA. 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. From: Principles of Regenerative Medicine (Second Edition), 2011, Anson J. Tsugawa, Frank J.M. Dellon et al. Even though there are some reports of potential immunogenic responses when utilizing PGA, most applications have not caused any inflammatory reaction. S.S. Shetye, ... L.J. Polyglycolic acid (PGA) is commonly copolymerized with PLA to form PLGA. These PGA sheets can be seen in Fig. 17 (Sakaguchi et al., 2015). USP 9/0 and 10/0 have monofilament structure, all … PGA-Sutures retain approximately 70 % of its initial strength after two weeks. 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. This outcome revealed that novel PGA-α-MSH may be proved as an antiinflammatory agent for the therapy of endodontic injury and lesions [113]. It exhibits a higher crystallinity than does PLA (46–50%). 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). 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). 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. 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. 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).

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. 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). It can be processed by extrusion, injection, and compression molding, but its processing window between its melting and degradation temperatures is extremely narrow. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Although conventional systems of drug delivery utilizing the natural and semisynthetic polymers so long but synthetic polymer gains success in the controlled drug delivery area due to better degradation profile and controlled network and functionality. Glycolic acid is produced during normal body metabolism and is known as hydroxyacetic acid [155]. As an adhesive, PGA was combined with fibrin sealant to create a very successful tissue adhesive. polyglycolic acid (plural polyglycolic acids) ( organic chemistry ) A biodegradable, thermoplastic polymer formed from glycolic acid monomers Synonyms [ edit ] Polyglycolic acid (PGA) was one of the initial, degradable polymers researched for biomedical application. Google has not performed a legal analysis and makes no representation as to the accuracy of the status listed.) 3. material used in closing a wound with stitches. P(CL/LA), 75: 25 and 50: 50)]. The combination of the PGA and fibrin created a much stronger sealant than any other biomaterial combination (Shinya et al., 2009). Hence, PGA-α-MSH has been proved as a potential scaffold to induce adhesion of pulp fibroblasts, along with cell proliferation. 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. Fig. 17. The first commercially available biodegradable synthetic suture approved by the FDA in the United States was DEXON. Nerve grafting is a very complex process, and is still in the early stages of research. 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). PGA’s random hydrolysis led to the combination with other polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) to control its degradation rate. There are a variety of Dexon sutures. Since the 1970s, PGA has been used as the degradable suture DEXON due its material characteristics including a melting point (Tm) greater than 200°C, a glass transition temperature (Tg) between 35°C and 40°C, and a very high tensile strength. PGA is commonly incorporated into scaffolds for various tissue engineering applications such as bone, tendon, cartilage, tooth, and spinal regeneration. 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). This spacer is made of non-woven fabric polyglycolic acid (PGA) with high water absorbency. Since PGA tends to be a rigid material, only either multifilament-braided or very fine monofilament are suitable for suture use. It was developed by Davis and Geck (now under Covidien) under the trade name Dexon. due to crystallization of PGA in the case of shaping in combination with another thermoplastic polymer. 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. 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. polyglycolic acid: [ soo´chur ] 1. sutura . 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. 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. Frequently, an alcohol like lauryl alcohol is added into the polymerization to control the molecular weight. Recently, Kureha Corp. announced the development of a new process for obtaining large yields of the intermediate glycolide product with high levels of purity. 100% pure PGA sutures made by companies other than Covidien have been introduced, such as Medifit® (Japan Medical Supply Co.) Safil and Safil Quick (B. Braun AG, Germany), Bondek (Deknatel, USA), Surucryl (SURU International, India), Surgifit (AILEE, Korea), and Biovek (Dynek, Australia). Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Additionally, PGA is known for its hydrolytic instability. Compared to PET, PGA displays better barrier properties to CO2 and O2. Additionally, PGA is known for its hydrolytic instability. Copolymer of 75% polylactic acid & 25% polyglycolic acid; also as copolymer of 70% polylactic acid and 30% polyglycolic acid. Weber et al. PGA's superior features over catgut are predictable absorption, outstanding tensile strength, invivo inertness and excellent handling properties. These sheets were first used only for soft tissues, and have since been used on hard tissues as well. Any absorbed moisture in the spacer exerts a shielding effect against proton beams. Chu, in Biotextiles as Medical Implants, 2013. This was done by placing bone marrow stem cells into a PGA tube, and observing for neural regenerative effects.

Tsugawa, Frank J.M. In the case of PGA, its hydrolytic instability can be attributed to the ester linkage in its backbone. The rate of degradation in polyesters is determined by many factors including copolymer ratio, crystallinity, molecular weight, porosity, site of implantation, amount of residual monomer, configurational structure, morphology and stresses.156 PGA has an approximate strength of 7.0 GPa and degradation time of 6 to 12 months.156 PGA can be woven or unwoven; however, woven scaffolds are more robust.157, Several in vitro and in vivo studies have suggested that both PGA and fellow polyester PLA are sufficiently biocompatible, but other studies have shown that PLA–PGA scaffolds may cause systemic or local reactions.156 The main cause of concern for these polyesters is the potential for local reactions to acidic degradation and the release of small wear particles. PGA can be polymerized either directly or indirectly from glycolic acid. Numerous catalysts are available for this ring opening polymerization. Fig. 17. Nerve grafting is a very complex process, and is still in the early stages of research. PGA is an aliphatic polyester derived from fossil fuel resources. Dart, in Comprehensive Biomaterials, 2011, Polyglycolic acid was the first commercially available absorbable synthetic suture. The heat of fusion of 100% crystallized PGA is reported to be 12 KJ/mol (45.7 cal/g). Further, PGA has insufficient melt stability and has a tendency to easily generate gasses upon its melt processing. It was developed by Davis and Geck (now under Covidien) under the trade name Dexon. Therefore, the forming processing of the PGA has involved a problem that forming conditions such as forming temperature and stretching temperature are limited to narrow ranges (2009, WO2009107425 A1, KUREHA CORP). The high crystallization rate of PGA is liable to cause problems in shapability or product appearance, such as failure in stable stretching, thickness irregularity in the shaped product, or opacification (whitening) of the shaped product, etc. Numerous catalysts are available for this ring opening polymerization. PGA has been known since 1954 as a tough fiber-forming polymer. 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]. PGA, PLA, and PDS are considered the three major polymers for bioabsorbable implants. Note.

Polylactic Acid-Polyglycolic Acid Copolymer; Polyglycolic Acid; Lactic Acid; Grant support. 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. 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). 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. Dart, C.M. It is a rather novel biodegradable polymer that has high mechanical strength and high gas barrier properties. In practice, PGA has been used in an effort to enhance facial nerve regeneration. 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). There are a variety of Dexon sutures. Its high crystallinity provides PGA with excellent mechanical properties as well as low solubility in organic solvents (Nair and Laurencin, 2007; Vaca-Garcia, 2008). Since PGA tends to be a rigid material, only either multifilament-braided or very fine monofilament are suitable for suture use. 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. Classification Codes. Owing to its hydrolytic instability, however, its use has initially been limited. 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. For biomedical applications, stannous chloride dihydrate or trialkyl aluminum are preferred. Polyglycolic acid (PLGA) dissolved in an organic solvent with salt particles is placed in a mold to produce a polymer/salt mixture, which is immersed in water to remove the salt particles and generate open-pore structures. 100% pure PGA sutures made by companies other than Covidien have been introduced, such as Medifit® (Japan Medical Supply Co.) Safil and Safil Quick (B. Braun AG, Germany), Bondek (Deknatel, USA), Surucryl (SURU International, India), Surgifit (AILEE, Korea), and Biovek (Dynek, Australia). Of note, there is no linear relationship between the ratio of PGA to PLA and the physico-mechanical properties of their co-polymers. Dexon Plus is coated with a copolymer of poly(oxyethylene-oxypropylene), while Dexon II has a polycaprolate coating. For PGA of suture fiber grade (i.e., molecular weight > 20 000), ring-opening polymerization of the cyclic dimers of glycolic acid is used. A report was published in 2010 to manifest the consequences of composite PGA-α-MSH on pulp fibroblasts. Compare Products: Select up to 4 products. Implants can also be made from PGA using a self-reinforcing technique and is used in the treatment of fractures and osteotomies [155]. The absorption times for PGA- Sutures is 60 to 90 days. This was done by placing bone marrow stem cells into a PGA tube, and observing for neural regenerative effects. PGA’s random hydrolysis led to the combination with other polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) to control its degradation rate. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. The vessel walls engineered under the dynamic stimulation for 8 weeks showed a dense and well-organized structure similar to that of native vessels. Commercial grades of PGA (e.g., Kuredux® Kureha Corp.; TLF-6267 PGA, DuPont Specialty Chemicals) have also been used for fracturing and sealing oil and gas wells (see Section 10.7.1). Lactic Acid/chemistry* Mice; Mice, Inbred C57BL; Microscopy, Electron, Scanning; Polyglycolic Acid/chemistry* Polylactic Acid-Polyglycolic Acid Copolymer; Porosity; Tissue Scaffolds* Substances. On the other hand, only α-MSH alone arrests this proliferation. The main uses of PGA are for deep closures of superficial fascia (subcutaneous tissue) in wounds and ligature of small bleeding vessels to effect hemostasis. It is a biodegradable polymer whose fibers exhibit high strength and modulus. It can be prepared starting from glycolic acid by means of polycondensation or ring-opening polymerization. Poly(D,L-lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) is a copolymer composed of 2-hydroxypropanoyl and 2-hydroxyacetyl units. This ap … PGA has proved to be highly biocompatible in most of its applications. E.M. Prieto, S.A. Guelcher, in Biomedical Foams for Tissue Engineering Applications, 2014. Till date, market is augmented with a huge number of improved drug delivery systems. 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.
