Surgical sutures are medical devices used to hold body tissues together after an injury or surgery. The application generally involves using a needle with an attached length of thread. A number of different shapes, sizes, and thread materials have been developed over its millennia of history. Surgeons, physicians, dentists, podiatrists, eye doctors, registered nurses and other trained nursing personnel, medics, clinical pharmacists, and veterinarians typically engage in suturing. Surgical knots are used to secure the sutures.
