Natural absorbable sutures are digested by enzymes in the body that attack and degrade the suture thread.

The absorbable synthetic sutures are hydrolyzed process by which water gradually penetrates the suture filaments, causing degradation of the polymer chain.

Compared to the enzymatic action of natural absorbable sutures, hydrolysis results in a lower degree of tissue reaction after being placed in the tissue.

A suture can lose tension force quickly and yet, be absorbed slowly or can maintain adequate tension force during wound healing, followed by rapid absorption.

In any case, the thread dissolves completely eventually, leaving undetectable traces in the tissue.

Although they offer many advantages, absorbable sutures also have certain inherent limitations.

If a patient has a fever, infection, or protein deficiency, the absorption process can accelerate and cause the tension force to decline too rapidly.

Absorption can also be accelerated if the sutures are placed in an area of ​​the body's cavity that is moist or filled with fluid.

In addition, if the sutures get wet or wet during handling before implanting into the tissue, the absorption process can begin prematurely.

All these situations predispose to postoperative complications, since the suture will not maintain adequate strength to withstand tension until the tissues have healed sufficiently.
