Can Vicryl and PDS sutures still be in my nose after 6 months?
The time a stitch depends on which area it is placed in and also the width of the stitch. A stitch in an area with high blood supply and movement will dissolve quicker than a stitch in a relatively immobile area and a thinner stitch will dissolve quicker than a thicker.
