Sutures, Synthetic, Nonabsorbable, Polyester, Monofilament

Definition : Polyester synthetic sutures made of polyester, a nonabsorbable (i.e., nonbiodegradable) polymer. These sutures are typically available in sterile monofilament uncoated thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Monofilament polyester sutures keep their tensile strength for very long periods of time and are not absorbed by tissues; their intended use includes general soft-tissue approximation and tissue suturing in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurologic procedures.
