What Is a Polysorb Suture?

Surgical sutures are crucial pieces of medical equipment, used for stitching up wounds and sealing surgical sites after operations to reduce the risks of infection and help the body grow. There are many varieties of sutures, and Polysorb sutures are a popular and commonly-used option.

Polysorb sutures are made from a glycolide and lactide copolymer called Lactomer. This is a synthetic polyester compound, derived from lactic acid and glycolic acid. It has various advantages, such as its impressive tensile strength during the initial healing period, its strong knot security, and its excellent levels of handling.

Polysorb sutures also fall into the absorbable category of sutures. This means that they are able to naturally degrade in the body over time and will be absorbed by the body, with no need for surgical intervention or manual removal. This makes them very convenient to use and gives them a lot of potential applications.

When to Use a Polysorb Suture?

It's always important to use the most appropriate type of surgical suture for each situation, and Polysorb sutures are a good choice for various procedures and processes. They're very commonly used during different forms of surgery, for example, like ophthalmic surgery to stitch together soft tissue. They may also be used for ligation purposes during certain surgical procedures. Thanks to their high tensile strength and handling, they’re a good choice to use whenever a surgeon requires a good level of control and precision.

Some of the most common sizes for Polysorb sutures are 5-0, 4-0, 3-0, and 2-0, although other sizes are available.

Polysorb sutures are a very specific type of medical suture, with their own unique material and structure. They are specifically made by the Covidien brand according to a specific set of standards, so there are not multiple types of Polysorb sutures. However, there are many other kinds of medical sutures available, including Vicryl sutures, Polydek sutures, steel sutures, nylon sutures, and so on.
