Most modern sutures are synthetic, including the absorbables polyglycolic acid, polylactic acid, Monocryl and polydioxanone as well as the non-absorbables nylon, polyester, PVDF and polypropylene.[2] The FDA first approved triclosan-coated sutures in 2002;[3] they have been shown to reduce the chances of wound infection.[4] Sutures come in very specific sizes and may be either absorbable (naturally biodegradable in the body) or non-absorbable
