1, The wound reaches the maximum strength, no longer need to suture. Therefore: Sutures with a non-absorbable suture or a longer-lasting absorbable suture should be used to suture tissue that heal slowly (eg, skin, fascia, tendons, etc); use resorbable sutures to suture tissues that heal faster (eg, stomach , Colon, bladder, etc.).

2, The organization of foreign body can make the contamination into infection. Therefore: Avoid using multifilament sutures when suturing contaminated wounds; use single-fiber sutures or resorbable sutures instead.

4, In urinary tract and biliary surgery, should be used absorbable suture.
