What Happens If The Sutures In The Surgical Wound Are Untied?
what happens when the surgical wound is dry but the wound skin is not too united but suddenly the surgical thread comes off
the function of the thread is as a mediator of sutures whose ultimate goal is to close separate tissues, either accidentally (injury) or intentionally (slice surgery). These separated tissues must be brought together so that healing can occur in a short time. If before healing occurs but the stitches have come off, then the tissue will not close and healing will take a long time. In addition, the risk of infection will increase, and the wound may fester. Therefore, ideally after any surgery, the sutures should be checked regularly, until healing is visible, and the sutures can be removed (or left, for certain types of sutures). In your case, we recommend that you go to the doctor directly, because of course it requires an in-person examination of the wound to be able to determine the condition of the wound and the necessary actions. Here we attach an article about stitches. Hope it is useful.
