To evaluate the rates of adverse reactions to suture materials and compare the rates for plain gut, polyglycolic acid, and polyglactin 910.Methods:
Postoperative adverse suture reaction rates were compared using Fisher exact test. One hundred and forty-six patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy were included in this study.Results:
Adverse suture reaction rates were 2% (1/48) for plain gut, 30% (6/20) for polyglycolic acid, and 12% (11/78) for polyglactin 910.Conclusion:
Plain gut suture was associated with fewer adverse suture reactions when compared with polyglycolic acid and polyglactin 910 and seems to be suitable for sclerotomy closure.
