A Surgical Suture is one of the highly used surgical tools in the medical domain. It is basically used to hold a wound or cut together until it heals. Suturing is the process of stitching or sewing the wound with the help of suturing implements like thread or a surgical staple. The area which requires a suture may be the outcome of injuries or surgery, and the design of the surgical suture used banks on where in the body the surgical suture is required. Some of the widely used types of sutures include running sutures, barbed sutures, and mattress sutures.
