Suture-granulomas were previously found in 6% of patients subjected to colorectal surgery. It was therefore investigated whether the use of polyglycolic acid (Dexon) instead of silk for fascial closure of abdominal incisions would reduce the rate of granulomas without an accompanying increase in rate of wound dehiscences. The two sutures were evaluated in a triple blind, randomized trial, using the paired sample principle in patients subjected to elective gastrointestinal surgery. One gram of… Expand
A COMPARISON OF CONTINUOUS POLYGLYCONATE (MAXON®) AND INTERRUPTED SILK SUTURE FOR ABDOMINAL WOUND CLOSURE
TLDR
The results of this trial indicate that continuous polyglyconate suture is as safe as interrupted silk suture, and is associated with a less incidence of wound pain or suture sinuses. Expand
Randomized comparison of polyglycolic acid and polyglyconate sutures for abdominal fascial closure after laparotomy in patients with suspected impaired wound healing
TLDR
Monofilament polyglyconate suture does not reduce the incidence of fascial disruption and incisional hernia after laparotomy in patients with suspected impaired wound healing but the occurrence of wound infection may be reduced compared with that of multifilamentpolyglycolic acid suture. Expand
Polyglycolic acid, silk, and topical ampicillin. Their use in hernia repair and cholecystectomy.
TLDR
Wound infection was significantly more frequent in patients with postoperative seromas or hematomas, and the effect of ampicillin could be demonstrated, nor was any difference between polyglycolic acid and silk sutures shown. Expand
Use of synthetic absorbable sutures for abdominal and chest wound closure. Experience with 650 consecutive cases.
TLDR
The synthetic absorbable sutures seem to represent the material of choice for routine abdominal or chest wound closure and imply a substantial cost reduction for the patient. Expand
Usefulness of Absorbable Sutures in Preventing Surgical Site Infection in Hepatectomy
TLDR
The use of synthetic absorbable sutURES, instead of silk sutures, in all the procedures of hepatectomy contributed significantly to the prevention of SSI. Expand
Effect of intra-abdominal absorbable sutures on surgical site infection
TLDR
Using intra-abdominal absorbable suturing instead of silk sutures may reduce the risk of SSI, but only in colorectal surgery. Expand
EFFECT OF INTRA-ABDOMINAL ABSORBABLE SUTURES ON SURGICAL SITE INFECTION
TLDR
Using intra-abdominal absorbable suturing instead of silk sutures may reduce the risk of SSI, but only in colorectal surgery. Expand
Inguinal hernia repair with silk or polyglycolic acid sutures: A controlled trial with 5-years' follow-up
TLDR
It is concluded that repair of direct inguinal hernias may be performed with the same safety with polyglycolic acid as with silk sutures in a triple-blind randomized trial. Expand
Prospective randomized controlled trial investigating the type of sutures used during hepatectomy.
TLDR
The incidence of SSI in patients receiving absorbable sutURES and silk sutures is not significantly different in this randomized controlled study; however, the period for recovery in patients with SSI was significantly shorter for absorbableSutures. Expand
Wound dehiscence with continuous versus interrupted mass closure of transverse incisions in children with absorbable suture: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
There is no significant difference between interrupted and continuous mass closures techniques in terms of wound dehiscence in pediatric patients, and basic principles of closure need to be followed especially when dealing with dirty wounds. Expand
