I have not discovered great appetite by the surgeons at UCLA so far in spite of published data and meeting with them; starting with OB GYN here.  UC Davis Medical Center got OB GYN to use for muscle and fascia closures however; hence why I started with that department here.  Interested if others are having better luck.  Warner

Subject: [MCOH-EH] Question about Blunted Sutures

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
