An absorbable suture break downs in tissue after a given period of time.  They are generally used when suturing internal tissues in the body, offering a convenient and non-invasive way of closing internal wounds and other incisions once closed with sutures.  Originally made of sheep's gut, most absorbable sutures are now made of synthetic polymer fibres.  Varieties of absorbable sutures include coated braided or monofilament sutures.
