Sutures, Synthetic, Absorbable, Polydioxanone

Definition : Synthetic sutures made of polydioxanone, an absorbable (i.e., biodegradable) polymer. These sutures are typically available in sterile monofilament uncoated 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 two to several weeks, and complete absorption occurs in less than six months; their intended use includes extended wound support and ophthalmic and pediatric cardiovascular surgery.
