Choose The Standard Of Suture Line
May 06, 2018

The most basic principle of suture is to use the stitches with the smallest tension and the smallest response to the tissue. The thickness of the various stitches is indicated by the number and number of Numbers. The larger the number, the thicker the suture. The diameter of the suture is in millimeters and is often represented by several zeros. The thinner the suture, the more of 0. For example, six zero nylon lines are thinner than four zeros. But the actual thickness depends on the material of the suture. For example, the same 5 0's, the gut is thicker than the polypropylene line (ProleneTM). The principle of choice for thick and thin is to choose the suture line as fine as possible under the condition of being able to withstand wound tension.
