This workshop will introduce the practical essentials to close and manage noncomplex traumatic lacerations, biopsies, and surgical excisions.
The workshop is ideally suited to nurses, medical students and doctors that have little or no suturing experience or wish to advance their current basic skill of only using single interrupted suturing technique.
Multiple techniques are covered in this workshop including single interrupted, vertical, and horizontal mattress and deep inverted suturing as well as closure using staples and tissue adhesives.
(Workshop time permitting, subcuticular and skin flap closure techniques will also be covered.)
The principal objects of wound closure are adopted for this workshop:
• Gaining closure
• Eliminate dead space
• Approximation not strangulation
• Scar minimisation
