HS57 Prolene suture HS5-7 HS 57 - help help help

Posted: May 10, 2010

I know I had this written down somewhere, but can't find it anywhere, not in ref. books, anywhere!

 He says:  end graft two-side arteriotomy HS5-7 Prolene

 I can't remember is it HS5-7 HS-57, H-S 57 or what the heck??!!

Could not find anything with the 7, but it would be HS-5

 Hope this jogs your memory.
