About The Webinar

Suture materials come in a bewildering array of types, sizes, needle attachment and colour; how do you decide which is best? All surgeons seem to have their own personal preferences so how can you match this to your stocking levels? This webinar will cover the jargon surrounding the material science of sutures, properties of suture materials and needle types and shapes helping you to understand what is required of the material in a variety of situations. We will focus on the common commercially available suture materials and discover what situation each is best suited for. This will hopefully give you confidence in selecting appropriate suture material for common surgical procedures.
