Absorbable surgical sutures are broken down by the body after the implant and providing the necessary strength to the tissue. This is the most important advantage of this type of suture. Absorbable sutures are used in general surgery, eye surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, urology, neurology, orthopedics and heart (except for the tissue of the heart itself)
Non-absorbable surgical sutures are sutures that are not broken down and absorbed by the body after the implant. This feature is used for long-term and permanent tissue strength and maintenance, especially in some abdominal anastomoses, eye surgeries, orthopedics, cardiovascular, etc.
