polydiaxion can cause serve tissue reaction and is not recommened for wounds false

natural absorable sutures breakdown via enzymes true
what suture is released by swaged needle by pulling sharply rather than cutting it control release
which team member should know which suture is used, so they can know how many pkgs needed st

phase of healing is the prolifiacte stage in tissue forming, last 5 - 20 days 2nd phase
this causes breakdown of collagen tissue near the incison site infection
the seperation & opening of wound edges, shortly after surgery, caused by infection or pressure at the wound edges wound dehisence
hematoma can be a resviour for infection, what is used to prevent this surgical drain
factors that contribute to the healing process of surgical incisions all of the above
when dehisence occurs, the spilling out of abdominal contents is called evisceration
