Sutures are the closing threads used to bind toghether body tissue, usually skin, blood vessels or internal organs. Suturing may be needed, for example, in the event of emergencies or other kinds of surgery. For suturing, almost exclusively, sterile-packaged suture kits are used where the needle and thread are permanently mounted.
Mainly, sutures are divided into the categories; absorbable and non-abssorbable. Absorbable sutures dissolve in the tissues of the body. The time this takes depends on the composition of the thread and can vary from a few days to over a year. Absorbable sutures are naturally used for internal suturing.
Non-absorbable sutures are mainly used externally, such as in the skin. These sutures are removed when they no longer fulfill any function in the healing process.
There are a number of different techniques for the actual process of suturing to join wound surfaces. These depend on the nature of the wound, surgery and the suture and needle used. Especially with skin suturing, it is important to evenly suture the wound edges to achieve a beautiful skin closure.
