Abstract

Mini-abstract: The study presents results of the examination of resistance of surgical sutures (Polidioxanone, Poliglecaprone and Poliglactin 910 as well as their analogues coated with antibacterial triclosan) in sterile and contaminated bile. The research has been performed in in vitro conditions. Structured abstract: The choice of appropriate surgical suture during operation is of much significance. Currently, there are no objective studies regarding the resistance of commonly used sutures in biliary tract surgery. The fact leads one to conduct the research concerning resistance of the sutures (Polidioxanone, Poliglecaprone, Poliglactin 910 and their analogues coated with antibacterial triclosan) in the environment of sterile and contaminated bile. The study was performed in in vitro conditions for 28 days. The study indicated that sutures made of polidioxanone had the most supreme qualities during entire experiment.
