What Is a Synthetic Suture?

Medical sutures are some of the most important materials in the medical world, and they can broadly be divided into two main categories: synthetic and non-synthetic, or natural. Synthetic sutures include all of those sutures made from synthetic materials.

There are lots of different varieties of synthetic sutures, including the likes of Vicryl sutures, Monocryl sutures, Dexon sutures, PDS sutures, nylon sutures, and braided polyester sutures. Each type has its own structure, thickness, strengths, and weaknesses.

Synthetic sutures may also fall into the categories of either absorbable or non-absorbable, where absorbable synthetic sutures are able to dissolve naturally inside the body over time, while non-absorbable variants need to be manually removed and won’t wear away on their own.

Not only that, but we can also have both monofilament and polyfilament synthetic sutures, and each of these types has its own structure and design, too, with lots of potential materials and many possible uses.

How Does a Synthetic Suture Work?

Synthetic sutures work just like other kinds of sutures. The surgeon will select an appropriate type and size of synthetic suture and then use it together with a surgical needle in order to stitch a surgical site or wound together in order to boost the body’s natural healing process and reduce the risks of infection, blood loss, and other issues.

Synthetic Suture Sizes 

There are lots of different sizes of synthetic sutures, with some being much thicker and stronger than others, and each size has its own best-use cases and applications. sizes for these sutures can be as narrow as 6-0 or 7-0, all the way up to thicker options like 2, 3, and 4.

Synthetic Suture Types

Just as there are various types of non-synthetic or natural sutures, there are also multiple varieties of synthetic sutures, too. Nylon is one of the most common types of synthetic sutures, for example, which may be known under brand names like Ethilon or Nurolon. There are also synthetic absorbable sutures like Monocryl, Dexon, and Vicryl sutures, which are made from various polymers and copolymers and offer a range of their own benefits and uses. Surgical steel is another example of a synthetic suture, known as one of the strongest sutures of all.

Synthetic Suture Uses

Since there are many different types of synthetic sutures, there are also a lot of potential uses of these sutures throughout the medical world. Some synthetic sutures are used for repairing skin wounds or incisions, for example, while others are very effective at treating soft tissue or vessel ligations, as well as subcutaneous wounds and surgical sites. Some of the strongest synthetic sutures are even used for orthopedics and tendon repairs.
