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.
