I had an ACLr w/patella autograph almost two weeks ago. I have a 2in lateral incision running north and south and an incision over the patella about 4in running north and south. Both incisions were covered with SteriStrips so today was the first day I've had a chance to take a peak at the incisions. Both appear to have been closed at the skin with a tissue glue either dermabond or indermil. That's fine but I have a strand of prolene, blue suture, exiting the skin from underneth at each end of the incision approximately a half in away from the end of the incision at each end. It looks to be the ends of a running suture for the fascia but I'm not sure. How do they remove this? It's non-absorbable material and doesn't seem to be an interrupted suture stitch. Any info would be appreciated. I work in the medical field, just not Ortho, so haven't seen this before. I see my OS tomorrow.
