Two-month longitudinal study of mechanical properties of absorbable sutures used in orthopedic surgery


Müller, Daniel; Snedeker, J G; Meyer, D C (2016). Two-month longitudinal study of mechanical properties of absorbable sutures used in orthopedic surgery. Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research, 11(1):1-7.

Abstract

This is the first study assessing the properties of large-Diameter degradable sutures relevant for orthopedicapplications over the course og in vitro incubation for 2 months. The data we present here provide guidance to the orthopedic surgeon in predicting the long-term Performance of suture materials usedeveryday in surgical practice.
