A recent article (link below) extolled the use of blunted sutures, when appropriate, in OR.  We are not currently using these devices in some of our ORs.  Do other facilities have experience with making blunted sutures available to ORs?  Have they been willingly accepted by surgeons?  Have you seen less suture BBFE’s because of their use?  Thanks for any feedback.  Best, Tim
