Non-absorbable Surgical Sutures

Non-absorbable sutures are those that resist digestion by the body, they are normally encapsulated (enclosed in fibrous tissue) by the body. Nonabsorbable suture materials are subdivided into those made of natural fibers (silk, cotton, linen), those made of synthetic materials (Polypropylene-PP, Polyester-PET, Polyvinylidene Fluoride-PVDF, Polytetrafluoroethylene-PTFE…) and metal (Surgical Stainless-Steel Suture)
