Idea Exchange: Surgical staples vs. sutures

VETERINARY MEDICINE

When male cats require urinary catheterization, we use surgical staples to keep the catheter in place rather than sutures. The advantages are rapid placement, no suture ends to become soiled or bothered by the cat, and rapid removal with easy location of the staples. Because the staples are flat, there is not much trauma or motion to the area.
