In this Things I Do But Should I segment, Vanessa and Adrien review the use of absorbable sutures in pediatric patients AND the use of tap water to irrigate wounds before suturing. Evidence strongly supports the use of absorbable sutures with no concern re decreased cosmesis. This is good news, because suturing kids in the first place can be challenging enough without needing to relive the trauma by taking the sutures out. Adrien and Vanessa also discuss articles which show that irrigating wounds with clean tap water showed no increased adverse events compared with sterile water or sterile saline irrigation.
