Surgical stainless steel wire sutures are available as monofilament or multifilament.

Additionally, surgical stainless steel wires can be tagged based on Brown & Sharpe Gauge (B&S) or American Wire Gauge (AWG) classification.

Rounded part is the upper part of the button. Straight part is used for distributing suture tension in contact with skin. Another accessories used for preventing tissue cuts by suture and distribute suture tension on abdominal coating is polyethylene (PE) tonus tampon.

Tonus tampon consists of high density hard polyethylene (HDPE) on upper part, and low density polyethylene foam (LDPE) at the bottom part that contacts application area. Both layers are connected with double-sided tape.
