Sutures

Wounds, whether caused by surgery or injury, should generally be closed to prevent from infection. Sometimes surgeons intentionally leave some wounds open which depends on the size and location of the surgery. Surgical sutures or staples are used to close wounds and surgical incisions. Stitches refer to sutures, which is the surgical procedure of bringing tissues and skin together. Traditionally, different types of suture material were used, such as a thread like material was used for suturing, now synthetic fibers are used which dissolve over time. Now, surgical staples are used depending on the type of wounds and urgency.

  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

Medical Staples

Surgery staples are classified by their material and shape. They are generally made from materials like Titanium, Stainless Steel, Plastic, or Chromium. Staples are used as an alternative to sutures in places where there is little space to stitch and during fast-paced procedures.

Staplers are used to close both internal as well as external wounds. A medical staple gun works on the same principle as an ordinary stapler lying on our desks.
