Revision: Characteristics of Suture Material

Absorbable:
Increasing loss of mass or volume of the suture material

Breaking strengh:
Limit of breaking strength at which the suture material breaks

Capillarity:
Volume of fluid absorbed along the suture line

Elasticity:
Ability of the material to return to its original shape after deformation

Fluid absorption:
Ability of the material to absorb fluid after immersion

Knot tearing strengh:
Ability of the material to absorb fluid after immersion

Knot strengh:
Ability of the material to absorb fluid after immersion

Memory effect:
Special ability of the suture material to maintain or return to its original form

Flexibility:
Easy handling of the suture material; possibility of adjusting the knot tension; secure fit of the knot

Tear strengh:
Ability of the material or tissue to withstand deformation or breakage
