- 1.1. Electron-irradiated catgut possesses greater tensile strength than heat-sterilized catgut.
- 2.2. The safety margin of irradiated catgut is ten times that of heat-sterilized catgut.
- 3.3. Sterilization by irradiation is accomplished in sealed containers, thus eliminating the danger of recontamination.
