    Chromic catgut is treated with a chromium salt solution to resist the body’s enzymes, extending absorption time to over 90 days. Chromic catgut sutures minimize tissue irritation, causing less reaction than plain surgical gut during the early stages of wound healing. Tensile strength can be delayed from 10 to 14 days, with some measurable strength remaining for up to 21 days.
