1. A single loop of suture material passed through skin or flesh by a needle, to facilitate healing of a wound.
2. A local, sharp, or spasmodic pain that often occurs in the side or flank of athletes. The following maneuvers may offer relief: bending forward while tightening the abdomen; breathing deeply and exhaling slowly through pursed lips; tightening the belt or pushing one's fingers into the painful area. It is advisable not to eat for 30 to 90 min before exercising, to warm up before exercising, and to work out at a lower intensity for longer periods.
