Suture and Staple Removal Trays

Suture and Staple Removal
The goal of suture removal is to remove skin sutures from a healed wound without damaging newly formed tissue. Usually, for a sufficiently healed wound, sutures are removed 7 to 10 days after insertion. Suture and staple removal are minimally invasive procedures that typically cause little or no pain unless infection is present or the sutures or staples are left in place too long and have become embedded in the skin. Techniques for removal depend on the method of suturing, but all require sterile procedure to prevent contaimination. Although sutures usually are removed by a doctor, in many facilities, a nurse may remove them with a doctor's order.
