This edition of the Veterinary suture handbook expands the contents of the previous edition with updated and more practical information. It includes basic aspects such as the different types of sutures, their characteristics and those of the instruments used, and the latest and most innovative materials. It also provides detailed descriptions of their use and advice on how to apply them to ensure the best results. In addition, the authors give greater relevance to the suturing of the different organs according to their characteristics and to new techniques, and a whole chapter is dedicated to eye surgery.
