However, when using such sutures, it is important to note that they might act transiently as a foreign body. As such, healthcare professionals who choose to use it should avoid using them on patients who might have delayed healing capabilities and those who might be debilitated or malnourished. 

These sutures are absorbable and take about 56 to 70 days to be fully absorbed into the body. Since it is made from materials that are absorbable, surgeons who use them should consider using supplemental nonabsorbable sutures for surgical sites that have a risk of expanding or distending.
