string sutures


Explanation:
Aquí te mando otro ejemplo que te puede servir: "Braided polyester purse string sutures (2-O Ti-cron) were
placed in the right atrial appendage and two were placed in the
aortic arch. A 5 Fr. Argyle polyethylene cannula was placed in
one of the purse-string sutures to monitor arterial pressure". Saludos.

Se Enhebran


Explanation:
HEBRA = THREAD
ENHEBRAR = TO THREAD.
In this particular case, I would say, the threads are twisted, although this really means THREADED.
So the sentence might read, "During one step of their manufacture, they are twisted to make one thread."

Braided string sutures


Explanation:
Me parece bien que los usuarios de este site expresen su opinión, pero hay que utilizar más que un diccionario para encontrar las respuestas sobre todo si se trata de terminología específica y utilizada por profesionales. En este caso yo me baso en fuentes en el idioma original y en mi experiencia. El hilado o enhebrado de las suturas se denomina "BRAID". Los hilos de sutura, "strings", se manufacturan trenzando o enhebrando diminutos filamentos de materiales biológicamente inertes. Por eso se les llama "braided string sutures". Saludos a mis colegas....
