fil (chirurgie)

Hi everyone,

I'm really grappling with "fil" in this particular context.
The text is a biospy report for a patient with cancer of the glans penis. I've got "fil" in the following phrases:
"1 - curage inguinal radical droit (lambeau cutané) - 1 fil ext. 2 fils int."
"2 - curage inguinal radical gauche [...] 1 fil sup. médian; 2 fils int. superficiels; 1 fil veine saphene ostium fémoral"
"3 - Glansectomie (extemporané sur fil)"

"ligature" has been suggested and I've got the reference below but I still can't seem to come to a conclusion.
Can anyone help?!

Reference: Operative Anatomy
