Training in suture techniques

A  Sunday session will offer suturing tips and hands-on instruction. “Innovative Suture Techniques Update” (F088) will be presented from 1 to 3 p.m. in Room 103/105.

Participants will learn a variety of techniques available to dermatologic surgeons and which techniques should be used for closures. They also will learn about standard stitches with variations, lesser known stitches, and innovative stitches that may eventually become more standard.

Industry pitched in to help make this session happen, with Ethicon donating the sutures and Tiemann-Bemsco lending surgical instruments.
