I hope it's okay to ask a layman question here. I am translating one of the episodes of Grey's Anatomy (S5E9) and came upon this dialogue:
Dr. Bailey: OK, yeah, that's right. Grey, tie it off while Yang holds the clamp in place.
Dr. Grey: Stick-tie or ligature suture?
Dr. Bailey: Whatever works. You have to do what feels right to you.
Dr. Grey: Ligature suture.
I think stick-tie is a type of suture, am I right? Does it have a full name or official name (is stick-tie colloquial)? Another (and my real) problem is the term ligature suture. I can't find what it is... I found that stick-tie is actually "suture ligature," but here it mentions ligature suture and apparently differentiates the two terms. Thanks in advance!
