    What type of sutures and screws are used? what dressing will be placed in order from deep to superficial?

    1. Hey Michaela,

      Deep sutures used are commonly 0, 2-0, and 3-0 Vicryl. Monocryl and Nylon are commonly used to close the skin. I have seen Zeroform, 4×4 dressing sponges, ABD pads, Kerlix, and an Ace bandage all used for dressings, and that would be the order they’d be applied.

      If you have any more questions, please reach out!

        What size nylon is typically used? Do you know the needle names for the sutures used?

    Hey Raebecca!
    3-0 and 4-0 Nylon are going to be the most popularly used for the skin. For the smaller vicryl, a SH needle can be used, and for bigger ones, a CT-1 will be sufficient. PS-2 is common for Monocryl, and PS for Nylons.
