Description

KTVT-TV examines a problem with potentially contaminated sutures used in surgeries all over the U.S. The investigation reports on the complaints of hundreds of people who believe they have been infected this way. The vicryl sutures, produced by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson, have been recalled and destroyed. "There was never a scientific test to prove whether or not they were contaminated," the program reports.
