The damaged tissue layers must be covered to preserve the functional integrity of the organisms. Surgical sutures, a key part of the wound healing process, are devices used during a surgical procedure to hold the tissues together post-surgery. Most of the wound closures are done with the help of sutures.

The choice of surgical suture depends on various factors such as the thickness of the skin, location of lesions, and the tension exerted on the skin. Suture materials are considered to be of utmost importance for quick tissue repair. The material used for sutures can be absorbable or non-absorbable. Sutures are thus a strand of material that ligates the blood vessels together and assist in healing the damaged tissues.
