Sutures, Synthetic, Absorbable, Polyglycolic Acid

Definition : Synthetic sutures made of polyglycolic acid, an absorbable (i.e., biodegradable) polymer. These sutures are typically available in sterile braided multifilament coated (e.g., magnesium stearate) thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 inches/45, 76 cm long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Polydioxanone absorbable synthetic sutures keep their tensile strength for several days to a few weeks, and complete absorption occurs in 60 to 90 days; their intended use includes suturing of subcutaneous, abdominal, thoracic, and other tissues during surgical procedures.
