As a method for closing cutaneous wounds, the technique of suturing is thousands of years old. Although suture materials and aspects of the technique have changed, the goals remain the same. Supporting and strengthening wounds until healing increases their tensile strength, closing dead space, approximating skin edges for an aesthetically pleasing and functional result and minimising the risks of bleeding and infection.
Suturing is an essential psychomotor skill in the everyday practice of medicine. Although suturing technique is important, the clinician must also have a thorough understanding of wound management in general to effectively care for a patient with a laceration.
