Abstract

Surgical wound suture is often considered of minor importance compared to the whole surgical operation. The aesthetical result of a wound suture is still hardly considered in general surgical practice compared to other "traditional" wound sutures. The Authors carried a prospective study an 201 intradermal absorbable sutures in clean general surgery. The results clearly show that with a limited increase of the mean operation time of 90 seconds, for a 10 cm suture, there are such positive clinical, and aesthetical results that it is advisable to use routinely this type of suture in elective clean surgery.
