A study was conducted on 24 healthy male buffalo calves to study the tissue reaction of the rumen wall to catgut, linen, silk and cotton. Different sutures, Cushing, Lembert's and lockstitch, were used. Macroscopically and microscopically, better healing was observed with silk and cotton than with catgut or linen. Cotton proved to be a promising suture material, provided the technique was aseptic.
