Abstract

Different techniques and materials have been described and developed in order to improve wound healing. Sutures date from about 3000 BC, and, from the first reports until the middle AD 1800s, they were only classified according to their origin (animal/insect, plant or metal). With the appearance of modern sutures, classification included other aspects, such as physical characteristics and composition [1].
