Wound healing in abdominal operations.

Abstract

For the practicing surgeon as yet there is no ideal suture and no perfect antibacterial substance. Therefore, the technique of wound and suture handling is extremely important. Gentleness is the key, and the surgeon should think in terms of what is happening to the cells in the area of repair. Gentleness will result in less dead tissue, fewer unwanted adhesions, less subsequent infection and, therefore, improved healing.
