What Is a 10-0 Suture?

Medical sutures are very important pieces of medical equipment, used for repairing wounds, sealing up incision sites after surgery, and helping the body recover and heal from a range of cuts, lacerations, and other injuries. 

There are various sizes of sutures for surgeons to use, and they’re usually measured with the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) system, with sizes ranging from as high as 11-0 USP to around 7 USP. 

10-0 sutures are some of the narrowest medical sutures available. They measure around 0.2mm in diameter, making them extremely fine and giving them certain specific uses and applications, such as ophthalmology or microsurgical repair.

There are various different types of 10-0 sutures, including Prolene 10-0 sutures, Vicryl 10-0 sutures, Ethilon 10-0 sutures, and more. Each type has its own specific pros and cons. Some of them are synthetic, while others are made of natural materials, and some are absorbable in the body, while others are not.

When to Use a 10-0 Suture?

It's always important to use the right size of suture for each situation, and 10-0 sutures have very specific usage scenarios, due to their immensely narrow size. Because they're so thin, these sutures are usually used in cases when surgery is taking place on very small areas of the body, such as very small blood vessels, parts of the eye, or other pieces of tissue around the body, which require precise and delicate repair.

10-0 Suture Sizes 

As the name implies, 10-0 sutures have a very clear and specific size: 10-0. All 10-0 sutures, no matter their type or brand name, should always adhere to this specific measurement and will always be 0.2mm in diameter from one side to the other. However, it is possible to find and use 10-0 sutures of varying lengths, as some brands sell 10-0 sutures in 4" lengths, for example, while others offer much larger quantities.

10-0 Suture Types

We can divide 10-0 sutures into various types, including both polyfilament and monofilament varieties, as well as absorbable and non-absorbable types. Monofilament 10-0 sutures consist of one singular stranded filament, like nylon sutures, while polyfilament sutures are made of multiple filaments twisted together, like Vicryl. Meanwhile, absorbable 10-0 sutures will degrade on their own in the body and don't need to be removed manually, while non-absorbable 10-0 sutures will not simply dissolve or degrade on their own and require manual removal.

10-0 Suture Uses

There are various uses of 10-0 sutures. They're very effective for stitching up very small and delicate areas and surgical sites, so may be used for microsurgical repairs or for surgeries involving the eye.

Ethicon, Medical Sterile Products, and Look/Div Surgical are some of the leading suppliers of 10-0 sutures.
