Suturing simulated skin 05 Plain suture

This subsection has text from an interactive multimedia training program on basic

this subsection).

Some are rarely described, but are easy to learn and to use to your advantage.


They should make you aware of other surgeons' technical niceties, which you can then adopt as you wish.
