Sutures, Synthetic, Nonabsorbable, Polyethylene

Definition : Synthetic sutures made of ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene, a nonabsorbable (i.e., nonbiodegradable) polymer. These sutures are typically available in sterile multifilament noncoated thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Polyethylene sutures keep their tensile strength for very long periods of time and are not absorbed by tissues; their intended use includes attachment of soft tissue to bone (e.g., the rotator cuff) and/or bone anchors.
