What Is a Polypropylene Suture?

A polypropylene suture, also known as a PP suture, is a surgical suture made from polypropylene. Polypropylene, or PP, is a thermoplastic polymer that has many applications. In the medical world, this material is prized for its excellent tensile strength and versatility.

Ranked among the most commonly-used medical sutures in the modern world, polypropylene sutures are ideal for a myriad of applications. They're bright blue in color, which makes them easy to work with during surgery, and their high tensile strength makes them well-suited for a wide range of procedures, including plastic surgery, microsurgery, cardiovascular surgery, and general wound or surgical incision closures.

Polypropylene sutures are also an example of non-absorbable sutures. This means that they are able to maintain their strength and structure for long periods of time and will not naturally degrade within the body. This makes them well-suited for long-term usage.

How Does a Polypropylene Suture Work?

Polypropylene sutures work just like all other common types of medical sutures. First, the surgeon will need to choose the appropriate size of suture to work with, which will depend on the size and location of the area which requires repair. Once the right size has been chosen, the polypropylene suture will be attached to a surgical needle and thread through the wound or incision area to stitch it together. Since polypropylene sutures are non-absorbable, they can be left in place over the long-term while the wound heals up and may be removed manually later on.

Polypropylene Suture Sizes 

Just like other sutures, polypropylene sutures are available in a range of different sizes. They’re measured using the standard USP sizing system, and some of the most commonly-used sizes of polypropylene sutures range from 6-0 to 4-0, although smaller and larger varieties are available. 

Polypropylene Suture Types

There are various kinds of surgical sutures, from nylon sutures to PDS sutures, silk sutures, polyglyconate sutures, and more. Polypropylene sutures are a specific type of surgical sutures, and even though different brands may produce them, all polypropylene sutures are almost entirely identical.

Polypropylene Suture Uses

As stated earlier on, one of the main advantages of working with polypropylene sutures is their high tensile strength. This makes them very useful for a wide range of general applications, including plastic surgeries, wound closures, and micro surgeries, too. They're also strong enough to be used in cardiovascular procedures for repairing damage to large blood vessels, as well as having orthopedic uses.

Polypropylene Suture Suppliers

Some of the top suppliers of polypropylene sutures include Covidien, Ethicon, and Look/Div Surgical.
