There are two general categorizations in which sutures are classified, absorbable and non-absorbable. Sutures can also be classified as monofilament or multifilament. DSI suture portfolio covers the most popular types. Every suture comes in individual sterile pouch with a specially designed curved needle made of a hardened steel.
