choosing the right suture material

Recommended Posts

my dad used unwaxed dental floss and 6 pound test mono fishing line wiped down with some


petrocarbo salve or some other gook well I did not die or even get any redness go figure.


if it was real deep he just cleaned it with soap and water iodine and tapped it and covered it with gauze and a bit of tape to keep it from falling off.


well he had it half right dental floss was not the best choice the pigs foot looked like the suturing was a bit tight.


I should mention internal sutures smart quite a bit so I would tie the person down especially the area to be sutured unless you want some teeth extracted with a fist.

and wear ear plugs safety first we don't want hearing loss not on the patient on the person doing the suturing.
