Suture and Needle

Surgery is incredibly complex and requires the use of several different types of needles. Proper wound closure is an essential part in the healing process for patients. Having the correct equipment (sutures and needles) will allow for the wound to heal without infection, which will allow the wound to heal with minimal scaring. In order for a needle to work properly, it must be strong enough to pass through tissue with causing minimal trauma to delicate tissues and reduce unwanted tissue reaction.

Needles are shaped in a variety of ways for specific purposes. They are typically made of steel, come in different sizes, have sharp or blunt tips and are either straight or curved.

Straight needles are ideal for skin closure as long as the area has clear visibility. Curved needles are commonly used in more intense-surgical procedures, such as cardiovascular, nasal and oral, gastrointestinal, respiratory and genitourinary surgery.

Sutures - Used to hold together the edges of a wound or surgical incision. Used in conjunction with an appropriate needle, sutures are the "string" that holds a wound together and allows proper healing.
