There are different suturing methods that can be used based on the procedure, the location on the body, and other factors. One of the most practical options for many procedures is a pop off suture.
These specially designed needles are the preference for most doctors and surgeons as they are easier to use. The design allows the needle to release the suture with just a slight movement, resulting in greater ease in placing the sutures.
One of the most commonly mentioned benefits of the pop off suture is the ability to quickly complete interrupted sutures. This is a critical factor when multiple sutures are required in the procedure. When the suturing is quicker and easier, there is less time required to place hernia mesh or other types of procedures, which is a benefit to both the surgeon and the patient.
The interrupted stitch means that each stitch is knotted. The pre-loaded needles are only used for one stitch as well, eliminating any transference in the process. There are different options and sizes of needles and suture material to accommodate different types of needs. They can be used in doctor’s offices, urgent care clinics, emergency rooms, or in operating theaters.
A pop off suture is also easy to remove after the healing process. As each suture is independent, a slight tugging sensation is all the patient feels during the stitch removal process.
The use of these sutures continues to grow in all types of medical applications. Easy to use and ideal for precise suture placement, they are indispensable anywhere suturing is required.
