Market Outline: Surgical Sutures Market

Surgical sutures are the medical devices that are used to hold body tissues together post-surgery or injury. They are usually classified into absorbable surgical sutures and non-absorbable surgical sutures. The absorbable surgical suture will break down harmlessly in the body over time without intervention. While the non-absorbable surgical sutures must be manually removed. Sutures can also be divided basing of material structure i.e. monofilament sutures and multifilament or braided sutures. Monofilament sutures elicit lower tissue reaction compared to braided sutures. Multifilament sutures are braided and often coated with various materials like silicon, wax, PTFE, polycaprolactone, calcium stearate etc.
