    Happy with sutures. . The only concern is, there are times that the sutures desolve in about 7 days . They should stay in tact for 14 days to my understanding. Thanks Tony Moralez

    Reverse cut needle sharp. Thread good, however, it tends to desolve at times way before it should. At times 2 or 3 days after.
