Abstract
Using scanning electron microscopy – SEM, 165 various samples of surgical sutures, including 75 monofilament and 80 multifilament sutures were studied. SEM revealed varying degrees of defects on surface of sutures. They became more frequent when knots were tied, found in 4 cases of monofilament sutures - 5.3% and 8 cases of multifilament sutures - 10%. SEM is one of the most reliable methods for evaluating suture defects that may cause surgical complications.
