What is the significance of PLA absorbable sutures?
In various operations in hospitals, surgical sutures are indispensable. If traditional non-degradable polyamide and polypropylene sutures are used to suture wounds, such sutures will remain in the body forever after the wound is healed. The tissue will reject the suture, and generally the suture needs to be removed after the suture. However, the absorbable sutures popular in medical treatment can be degraded in the body, absorbed by the body or excreted from the body, and generally disappear from the suture in 2-6 months. Absorbable sutures, such as PLA sutures, are degraded and absorbed in the body, avoiding the pain caused by the second surgery to the patient.
The raw material of PLA comes from renewable plant starch, which is an important degradable material. Because of its good biocompatibility, degradable absorbability, and non-toxic and harmless, it is increasingly becoming an irreplaceable development in the field of medical devices. potential. In medical operations, surgical sutures are a very important material, and polylactic acid has made a considerable contribution to absorbable sutures. Its biodegradable and absorbable properties can make the human body avoid suture removal injuries.
