Abstract

It was shown that modified surgical sutures with a core—shell structure with assigned thickness and porosity of the polyhydroxybutyrate shell or mixtures with other polymers and SF additives can be fabricated. It was found that a change in the content of the modifier polymer in the fibres within the limits of up to 15% had almost no effect on their metric size and strength. The dependence of the rigidity of the sutures on the modifier polymer content is described.
