Example text

The point extends from the extreme tip of the needle to the maximum cross-section of the body. The basic needle points are cutting, tapered, or blunt. Each needle point is designed and produced to the required degree of sharpness to smoothly penetrate the types of tissue to be sutured. Surgical needles vary in size and wire gauge. The diameter is the gauge or thickness of the needle wire. 4 mm). Very small needles of fine gauge wire are needed for micro-surgery. Large, heavy gauge needles are used to penetrate the sternum and to place retention sutures in the abdominal wall.

P. regulations. Size denotes the diameter of the material. Stated numerically, the more zeroes (0's) in the number, the smaller the size of the strand. As the number of 0's decreases, the size of the strand increases. The 0's are designated as 5-0, for example, meaning 00000 which is smaller than a size 40. The smaller the size, the less tensile strength the strand will have. Tensile strength of a suture is the measured pounds of tension that the strand will withstand before it breaks when knotted.

This gives good handling and tying qualities. However, variability in knot strength among multifilament sutures might arise from the technical aspects of the braiding or twisting process.
