  • Abstract

    Suture materials used for treating wounds were originally natural materials such as animal tendons and cotton fibers. Usage of these materials often resulted in severe infections. Sterilization reduced these complications significantly. However, sutures are still foreign materials, which tend to attract bacteria.   Antibacterial sutures composed of polyglactin 910 (Vicryl® Plus Antibacterial suture), polyglecaprone 25 (Monocryl® Plus Antibacterial suture), and polydioxanone suture (PDS® Plus Antibacterial suture) which is coated with triclosan have also been developed. It is well known that sutures play an effective and critical part in case of surgeries and trauma management.
