Basic Knotting Training

Selecting the knot to be used is not an easy choice and has to be decided according to a series of factors of which the most important are:

  • The tissue or organ to be sutured.
  • The depth of the wound: When the wound is located in a place of limited access, we might need a knotting technique that requires a finger or an instrument.
  • The amount of tension that the wound will eceive postoperatively.
  • The sutures's material and structure. – This is an important issue, as it will determine the number of throws needed to hold the knot.
  • The desired cosmetic results.
