Global Surgical Sutures Market 2017-2021

About Surgical Sutures

Surgical sutures or stitches facilitate the closure of the wound or incision. It is a critical and effective part in trauma management and surgery procedures. These surgical sutures hold apposing tissues together and hasten healing process with no scar or minimal scar formation. Based on the suture materials used in suturing, surgical sutures can be classified into absorbable and non-absorbable sutures. Absorbable sutures break and absorb in the body after a certain period while non-absorbable sutures do not degrade in the body and need to be removed by the surgeon after the wound heals.

The rise in the volume of surgeries coupled with an increase in chronic disease conditions positively contributes to the global surgical sutures market. Surgical sutures or stitches have become an important tool in the present-day medicine as it is helpful to seal the wounds or incisions that occur during surgical procedures.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Growing preference toward MIS. Surgical sutures are used to close the edges of the incision or wound during surgeries. The sutures come in absorbable and non-absorbable types. While absorbable sutures may take some time to hydrolyze in the body, the non-absorbable sutures should be removed by the surgeons after the wound is healed. These sutures are used in CVD, orthopedic, and general surgeries, which often require long cuts/incisions.
