stitches removal not required (dissolvable stitches)
Explanation:
Yes, it definitely means that the stitches will fall out on their own. This type of suture is commonly used in orthopedic surgery.

The stitches won't require removal because they used dissolvable stitches, which will fall out or dissolve on their own.

Oggigiorno la maggior parte delle ferite chirurgiche vengono chiuse con punti riassorbibili poichè questo ha diversi vantaggi, non da ultimo quello che i punti cadono da soli quando la ferita è cicatrizzata

The time it takes for dissolvable or absorbable stitches to disappear can vary. Most types should start to dissolve or fall out within a week or two, although it may be a few weeks before they disappear completely. Some may last for several months.

-If your surgeon used dissolvable stitches, they will fall out on their own typically within 1 week. If other sutures were used, a follow up appointment will be required to remove them.
