Surgeons use kilometers and kilometers of surgical sutures of different types: absorbables such as polyglycolic acid, polylactic acid, and polydioxanone as well as the non-absorbables like nylon and polypropylene. Sutures are used to hold and repair all body tissues, to repair arteries, vessels, and nerves, muscles, tendons, and others. There are a number of different techniques such as single interrupted, continuous or running sutures, etc.
