Wound closure is a complex process that relies on a variety of tools and materials to produce the best outcome for patients. The use of a single suture for the closure of all fascia is ill advised and should be avoided. This thesis seeks to inform the reader of the characteristics and utility of various synthetic polymeric materials and their application as surgical sutures.
