Caption: Intestinal suture repair. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a suture repair made in the intestines using surgical thread. Such threads are made from microfilament nylon and can have a thickness less than that of a human hair. The suture (pink) is surrounded by a large tissue clot (green), aiding in the healing process.
