Practice Tip: Using suture packs to make a quick measurement


When removing a mast cell tumor, a 3cm margin is recommended. What do you do if your doctor doesn't have a scalpel handle with measurements on it, and you don't have a sterile caliper? Give them a pack of PDS suture. The plastic part of the suture pack is exactly 3cm.
