Abstract

I am testing to see if surgical wounds can be sterilized and soothed while healing. I believe this is important because of the possibility of lives being saved and this benefits anyone undergoing surgery. My project will be similar to other experiments done with polydioxanone sutures except for the difference of my attempt to use capillary action in my tests. I plan on infecting porcine skin and designing my own drip-coating process for the sutures using pennsaid and possibly moisturizer. I plan on discovering ways to disperse the medication throughout the wound and thus creating my product. I will analyze it by observing how effectively it killed the staphylococcus aureus as planned.
