> 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.
