My Daugter is 2 Years Old and Has a Dog Bite on Face Which Are Best Dissolvable or Non Dissolvable Stiches?
my daughter has been bitten on the cheek by a dog my surgeon has decided to use non dissolvable stiches. I was innitially told that because she was only two years old they would place dissolvable stiches in. Is there advantages/ dissadvantages to using either type of stiches and do you know why they would rather use non dissolvable stiches. Surely it is going to be very difficult for the nurse to now remove the sutures.
Absorbable or permanent sutures
