Sutures, Synthetic, Nonabsorbable, Nylon, Multifilament

Definition : Synthetic sutures consisting of multifilament nylon fibers made from nonabsorbable (i.e., nonbiodegradable) aliphatic polymers. These sutures are typically available in sterile braided coated thread sections (e.g., 18, 30 in [45, 76 cm] long) attached to a single-use needle as an integral device; they are frequently colored for easy identification during surgery. Nylon sutures keep their tensile strength for very long periods of time; nylon is not absorbed, but hydrolysis may result in gradual loss of tensile strength over time. Nylon nonabsorbable synthetic braided sutures are characterized by their excellent handling properties; their intended use includes suturing internal organs and tissues.
