Caption

Suture in forceps. Close-up of a suture held in a pair of forceps. Sutures allow wounds and surgical incisions to be sewn together. The sharp metal tip is used to pierce the skin, allowing the sterile suture to be pulled through. This is a non-absorbable suture and so must be removed once the wound has healed.
