Nonabsorbable surgical suture: A nonabsorbable surgical suture is a strand of metal, silk, cotton, or synthetic material for use in closing abdominal wounds, creating an intestinal anastomosis (connection between cavities), hernia repair, and to close the sternum following open chest surgery. Skin sutures are removed after the skin after sufficient healing has occurred. Sutures may be coated with materials that make them pass more easily through the body tissue and make them less reactive with body tissues.
