Suture Bolsters

Definition : Devices designed for the temporary support and/or cushioning of a suture in an appropriate position. These devices typically consist of a small, pillow-like piece of gauze, plastic, or other rolled or tubular soft material. Suture bolsters facilitate the suturing procedure and prevent excessive suture tension and laceration of tissues by distributing the force in a larger anatomic area (usually the surrounding tissue). They are typically fixed to the skin in the postoperative phase of surgical procedures (e.g., eyelid and ear surgery, skin grafting, vesicourethral reconstruction and other perineal procedures).
