    A tie and a free tie are the same. They are lengths of suture without a needle. When they as for a tie or free tie, they want it placed in their hand. They may ask for a tie on a pass or passer. This means one end of the tie is clamped in a hemostat or tonsil clamp. A stick tie or suture lig is suture with a needle. It is used to suture around a vessel in order to tie it off. Hope that helps.

    You can't find a good book about OR skills? Your OR should have reference books and/or you should. The best place to start for the last million or so years is Alexanders Care of the Patient in Surgery.
