Absorbable Surgical Sutures

What are Absorbable Surgical Sutures?
Absorbable or dissolvable sutures are composed of those materials that are broken down in tissue after the passage of a certain amount of time. This time period for absorption varies from 10 days to 8 weeks and generally 3 weeks is sufficient. The suture material loses its tensile strength as the surrounding tissues begin their healing process.These sutures find applications in internal tissues of the body and are advantageous in the sense that once they are absorbed there is no foreign material left in the body and suture removal process is not required.

Short term absorption is useful for fast healing tissues such as skin and mucosa. Mid term absorption is indicated for soft tissue approximation, general surgery, orthopaedics, ophthalmic procedures, plastic & maxillofacial, neurosurgery and urologic procedures. Long term and extra long term absorption is required for vascular surgery procedures, abdominal wall closures and difficult healing anatomies.

The process by which synthetic absorbable sutures are absorbed in the body is called hydrolysis. Hydrolysis is a chemical reaction in which a water molecule breaks a covalent bond and the breakdown has greater predictability than when enzymatic reactions are used (like in the case of catgut sutures). This control over the resorption of suture material is one of the main reasons in the increase in use of synthetic absorbable sutures compared to catgut sutures.

Types of Absorbable Surgical Sutures 
Absorbable sutures are made from both natural and artificial materials. The various types of absorbable sutures are listed below:

  • - Catgut sutures are natural absorbable sutures made from intestines of sheep and goats. These are either plain or chromic. Plain catgut sutures absorb quickly. Chromic catgut sutures are those that have been treated with chromic salt solution in order to make them resistant to human enzymes and retard their absorption. Catgut sutures find applications in general surgery, ophthalmic, orthopaedics, obs – gyne, and GI procedures.
  • - Polyglactin 910/ PLGA sutures are synthetic absorbable sutures that have 90% glycolide and 10% lactide. PLGA sutures are braided (multi filament) and are indicated for soft tissue approximation and ligation.
  • - Polyglycolic Acid (PGA) sutures are synthetic and absorbable. They contain 100% glycolide and have a coating of polycaprolactone and calcium stearate. They are indicated for soft tissue approximation including ophthalmic procedures but not for neurosurgery and cardio vascular procedures.
  • - Poliglecaprone sutures are fast absorbent sutures .They are synthetic, absorbable and monofilament. Their composition includes glycolide and a copolymer of epsilon and caprolactone. They are indicated for ophthalmic and micro surgical procedures. They should not be used in patients where the wound healing could be delayed.
  • - Polydioxanone sutures are absorbable sutures composed of the polyester poly-p-dioxanone. They are indicated for orthopaedic surgery, general procedures, paediatric procedures and fascia closure. Their absorption is slow is completed in 180-210 days.
