What Is a Dissolvable Suture?

Dissolvable sutures, also known as absorbable sutures, are a specific category of medical sutures. As the name implies, the key feature of these sutures or stitches is the fact that they are able to naturally dissolve and be absorbed by the body over time, removing the need for any manual removal or intervention.

Dissolvable sutures can be made of various materials which are broken down by the body's own acids and enzymes. They're often made of animal products, such as the fibers found inside sheep intestines, which makes them very natural and safe to use in the human body.

There are a lot of advantages associated with dissolvable sutures. For example, since the body breaks them down over time, these stitches are great for sealing up wounds and surgical sites inside the body that would be hard to access after surgery. They're also very flexible, so are good for dealing with oddly-shaped wounds.

How Does a Dissolvable Suture Work?

In terms of usage and application, dissolvable sutures are used in the same way as any other suture; a surgeon picks a type and size of suture, connects it to a medical needle, and then uses it to stitch tissue or vessels together accordingly. The key difference with absorbable sutures is that they are then able to dissolve naturally in the body over a period of weeks or months, depending on which type has been used.

Dissolvable Suture Sizes 

Dissolvable sutures are available in a range of sizes, and they're usually measured with the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) system. , which tells us the diameter of each suture using a numerical scale. Some of the most common sizes of dissolvable sutures are 6-0, 5-0, 4-0, and 3-0, but it's possible to find larger variants, too.

Dissolvable Suture Types

There are many different types of dissolvable sutures, with various materials and filaments being used to make these types of sutures. Some examples of dissolvable sutures include chromic gut sutures, polydioxanone (PDS) sutures, poliglecaprone sutures, and vicryl sutures. Each one of these types has its own advantages and uses. PDS sutures, for example, are great for soft tissue repair and cardiac procedures in pediatric patients.

Dissolvable Suture Uses

There are many potential uses of dissolvable sutures, and they’re among the most commonly used forms of medical sutures in countless hospitals and clinics across the globe. They're ideal for repairing and suturing internal wounds, due to the fact that the body breaks them down naturally over time, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions or rejection. They're also useful for dealing with jagged wounds or spongy surgery sites, due to their flexibility.
