Non-Absorbable Sutures Market Size to Witness Sustained Growth throughout the Forecast Period

Surgical suture is a medical device used to hold tissue together after surgery; the application of surgical suture involves the use of a needle attached to a thread. Two types of surgical sutures i.e. absorbable and non-absorbable are available. Different types of material used for non-absorbable sutures include polypropylene sutures, stainless steel, silk, and polyester sutures. Polypropylene sutures are available in blue for easy identification during surgery. This type of suture has high tensile strength and is used for plastic, orthopedic and general closure, cardiovascular surgeries, and micro surgeries. Polypropylene sutures are also known as prolene sutures. Silk sutures are commonly used as ligature and are also used for other applications such as ophthalmic, skin, etc. Silk sutures are not indicated for use in urinary tract and biliary surgery. Silk sutures have moderate tissue reaction.

Polyester sutures are mostly used in cardiovascular and ophthalmic surgery due to excellent tensile strength; they are soft and pliable with excellent braiding. Polyester sutures are available in white and green colors. Nowadays, stainless steel sutures are extensively used due to their essential qualities such as absence of toxic elements, flexibility, and fine wire size. Both monofilament and twisted multifilament varieties are low in tissue reactivity, high in tensile strength, and hold a knot well.
