Surgical suture is a medical device used to hold  body tissues after injury and surgery. A number of different materials, shapes and sizes of sutures are available for a medical professional to select from while suturing a surgical incision, internal organ, blood vessel, laceration or wound.

Suturing is an important procedure which ensures healing of tissues and wounds after a medical procedure has been performed. Suturing ensures that the tissue to be healed is able to withstand stress till complete healing takes place. Suturing also prevents leakage of blood from lacerated tissues and minimizes scar formation.  

Sutures may be of synthetic or natural origin, and can be either absorbed by the body or stay in the body indefinitely or till they are removed. Some sutures are also treated with a coating, softening or antibacterial agent to add to their properties.  There are various types of sutures available and a suture is chosen based on the location, environment and requirement of the area to be sutured. Sutures are used in all fields of surgery including obstetrics and gynecology, cardio thoracic, ophthalmology, urology, plastic surgery, orthopedics etc.
