Q-close™ Synth Fast is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation where only short term wound support is required and where rapid absorption of the suture would be beneficial. Due to the rapid absorption profile, Q-close™ Synth Fast is useful for skin closure, particularly in paediatric surgery, episiotomies, circumcision and closure of oral mucosa.
