Background and purpose: Despite progresss in the techniques of surgery, there is still a lot of controversy about selection of the best technique and suture material. Many post operation complications such as infection, wound dehiscence, pain and sinus formation are related to the type of the suture used. In this study we compared the complications due to the absorbent suture (PDS) with a non absorbent suture (nylon) in laparotomy operation.
Materials and Methods: This clinical trial was performed on 120 patients referring to Imam Khomeini hospital, Sari, 2003-2005 for laparotomy. They were randomly divided in tow groups of equal number. The incision was repaired with PDS sutures in case and with nylon suture in control group. All patients under study were followed up for one year. Data about chronic pain,wound dehiscence, infection, hernia and sinus formation were recorded and analyzed using SPSS software and Chi- square test.
Results: In this study 120 patients (60 in case and 60 in control groups) were enrolled. After laparotomy, the incidence of chronic pain and sinus formation in case group was significantly less than the control group. There were no significant differences between the rate of infection, hernia and wound dehiscence in the two groups.
Conclusion: No significant differences in the rate of infection, hernia and wound dehiscence between two types of suture materials were observed. However, application of PDS leads to less pain and sinus formation. Therefore, it can be a better choice in surgical incisions.
