From basic science to latest suturing techniques
Proper closure and stabilization of wound margins are critical events that influence the success of any surgical outcome. Mucoperiostal and/or mucosal flaps positioned to cover periodontal or periimplant defects require careful tissue management and adaptation owing to the fact that the wound comprises several interfaces of tissue that differ fundamentally in composition. Hence, healing in periodontal and periimplant defects following flap surgery are conceptually more complex processes than is wound healing in most other sites in the body.
In modern plastic surgery, it is evident that suturing receives a higher degree of attention in situations where mechanical stability of the flap is required in order to maintain the integrity of the wound.
The present course focuses on the biological aspects of the utilization of sutures in attempting primary wound closure and the role of suturing in providing wound stabilization. Besides the scientific background of suturing and wound healing, you will become familiar with the latest suturing techniques.
