  • Absorbable Sutures

    Sutures are used in different procedures. The most common is tissue approximation and temporarily ligation of blood vessels. These procedures as well as the characteristics of each feature may make the properties and characteristics of each strand vary in order to be able to suit the required intervention. That is why the sutures may be degraded or hydrolyzed (as synthetic sutures).

  • Non Absorbable Sutures

    These sutures cannot be absorbed by the body; therefore, a second procedure is required in order to remove or replace them with absorbable sutures that have a lower risk for infection, even though they tend to form keloid scars. These sutures can be of single filament, known as monofilament or twisted / braided filaments known as multifilament. Moreover, they can be of natural or synthetic origin.
