Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. Implantation studies in animals indicate that PDO II remains approximately 82% of its original tensile strength at two weeks post implantation, with approximately 77% remaining at three weeks absorption. The absorption of PDO II synthetic absorbable surgical suture is essentially complete around 180 days.

Surgical chromic catgut sutures are indicated for use in general, soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in ophthalmic procedures, but not for use in cardiovascular and neurological procedures.
This suture being absorbable, should not be used where extended approximation of tissue is required, as gut is a collagen based material and chromic gut is treated with chromic salt solutions.

Silk surgical sutures are a non-absorbable sterile suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin. This protein is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx Mory of the family bombycidae. Suture characteristics include, braided wax coated black or twisted uncoated white virgin or twisted uncoated white virgin or twisted uncoated White. Silk surgical meets all requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (U.S.P) for non-absorbable surgical sutures. These sutures in USA can be only for veterinary use, in other countries it can be used in human or vet.
Silk surgical suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular and ophthalmic and neurological procedures. Actions Silk surgical suture elicits minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by general encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While silk is not absorbed, progressive degradation of proteinaceous silk fiber in vivo may result in gradual loss of the suture stensile strength over time.

Black in color, it is a monofilament suture that is used frequently for soft-tissue approximation and ligation. Even though it is nonabsorbable, the knot security decreases over time (in vivo) and should not be used where permanent retention is required.
