Abstract

Selection of wound closure materials (sutures, needles, staples, and skin tapes) is presented. The characteristics of commonly used suture materials and needles are discussed as a background for their rational selection and usage. The attributes of staples and sutureless skin closures (skin tapes) are also given and contrasted with those of sutures.
