Suture reactions are complications that are occasionally encountered in surgical patients. Both the physical (monofilament vs. multifilament) and the chemical construction of the suture material affect the reactions that take place in the tissues. Suture reactions can cause morbidity to the patient, prolong healing time, and increase the treatment costs; nonetheless, the prognosis is usually very good. When selecting an appropriate suture material, one must pay attention to the characteristics of the suture material, the condition of the wound environment in question, and its healing rate. The use of multifilament suture material in extracapsular stabilization with lateral fabellar suture for cranial cruciate ligament injury has been shown to cause more suture complications than using monofilament nylon. Swelling associated with nylon has been reported to develop 6 to 44 weeks after surgery and to result in suture removal in 6 of 10 dogs. © 2016 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. All rights reserved.
