Sutures, Synthetic, Nonabsorbable, Polyester, Multifilament

Definition : Polyester synthetic sutures made of polyester fibers, a nonabsorbable (i.e., nonbiodegradable) polymer. These sutures are typically available in sterile uncoated or coated (e.g., with polybutilate, silicon) multifilament thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 inches/45, 76 cm long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Braided multifilament polyester sutures keep their tensile strength for very long periods of time and are not absorbed by tissues; their intended use includes vessel anastomosis and placement of prosthetic devices (e.g., cardiac valves) and implants.
