Author information

Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, University of Sydney, New South Wales.


One hundred and twenty six respondents at a continuing education course in February 1986 provided information on suture use in their practice. The 100 responses from four Australian states were subject to analysis of suture type and size used for various procedures and correlated with practice type, location and state. The use of gut and nonabsorbable sutures in cassettes was pervasive. Superior materials and sutures in individual foil packets were used commonly only for a more complicated procedure (enterotomy).
