  • Further mono-filament sutures like Poliglecaprone and Polydioxanone sutures have been introduced to provide surgeons with a broad choice of sutures.

Below is a graphical representation of the comparison between various absorbable sutures on properties such as tensile strength of the sutures, the period within which suture fully absorbs in the body, ease of knotting / knot security and tissue friendliness of each absorbable suture material.
