Simultaneous repair of cutaneous and subcutaneous wounds using a single suture technique.

This study describes a single suture technique for the simultaneous repair of cutaneous and subcutaneous wounds that reduces the risk of infection, cost and procedure time, and is easy to learn and perform.

Use of tissue adhesives versus sutures on minor surgery for incision closure: randomized controlled trial

This review looks at the use of tissue adhesives in the operating room/theatre where surgeons are using them increasingly for the closure of surgical skin incisions.

An assessment of clinical, biometric, cosmetic and microscopic outcomes of four suture techniques for cutaneous closure of laparotomy wounds: an experimental study in rabbits

It is important to know whether the wound closure by continuous or interrupted suture techniques provide proper wound healing and lower complication rates, so as to allow veterinary surgeons to make an informed decision when choosing a pattern for an abdominal closure.

Oblique intradermal suture as a faster choice for intradermal closure: a randomized equivalence trial

Wound outcomes using OIS were equivalent to those observed when using IS, except that OIS yielded reductions in suturing time, number of stitches and suture material used, and OIS is a cost and clinically effective wound closure method.

Effects of different suture patterns and materials on healing of incised skin wounds in cattle

This study was designed to compare the morphological characteristics and outcome of incised skin wounds closed with three suture patterns using two suture materials to help veterinary surgeons to consider appropriate suture technique and materials for skin closure.

Surgical instruments, sutures and suturing techniques.

Suture materials used included horsehair, fibres from tree bark, cotton and, in ancient Rome, human hair and catgut (made from sheep's intestine) (Burnand and Young, 1998), which was used until recently in the UK.

Continuous Muco-Subcutaneous Technique for Repairing of Vulvar Surgeries

The retrospective review of medical records of 25 patients who had CMST for repairing of vulvar surgeries in precancerous lesion of vulva and vulvar cancer in Ubonratchathani Cancer Hospital showed low incidence of wound disruption from CMST.

Reference for the Soft Tissue Workshop

Advances in medicine have caused changes in attitudes and in areas traditionally reserved for certain groups, thus causing a beneficial improvement between them, as long as medical-surgical acts are performed with the highest current standards.

Distance of insertion points in a mattress suture from the wound margin for ideal primary closure in alveolar mucosa: an in vitro experimental study

Placing the near insertion point close to the wound margin enhances the precision of wound margin approximation/adaptation using a vertical mattress suture.



Wound closure and special suture techniques.

In this review, the author presents the physiologic events in wound healing. A discussion is provided with emphasis on proper tissue handling and suture techniques. A variety of methods are

Sutures: the suspension suture

Abstract. The suspension suture is a tension-reducing stitch that anchors the undersurface of a flap or elliptical wound edge to the underlying periosteum. The technique of placing the stitch is

The buried running dermal subcutaneous suture technique.

This article illustrates the buried running dermal subcutaneous suture technique, a more rapid method for closing large fusiform open skin wounds than vertically oriented buried dermal subcutaneous

Commonly used suturing techniques in skin surgery.

Proper suturing technique is essential for obtaining good cosmetic results and avoiding infection, scarring and poor wound healing, and interrupted sutures are more time-consuming but allow more precise wound edge approximation.

Versatility of the subcuticular purse-string suture in wound closure.

A useful extension of the purse-string continuous subcuticular suture technique for management of circular or oval wounds can provide primary skin closure in small defects and can be used in large skin defects, reducing the amount of skin graft required.

Intradermal buried vertical mattress suture as sole skin closure: evaluation of 149 cases.

Following 149 procedures in 126 patients, the colour and dehiscence of the scar and the presence of hypertrophy, granulomas or keloids were analysed and the cosmetic results were excellent to good, satisfactory to good and poor.

Surgical pearl: the dermal buried pulley suture.

The Donati stitch revisited: favorable cosmetic results in a randomized clinical trial.

Scar cosmetics of lower midline laparotomies could be improved by using interrupted Donati stitches instead of a running suture, which resulted in a cosmetically better scar.

The "round block" purse-string suture: a simple method to close skin defects with minimal scarring.

We report the use of a subcuticular purse-string suture for closure of surgical skin defects, a simple maneuver that we have found to be very useful in closing difficult wounds and reducing scarring.

The modified buried vertical mattress suture. A new technique of buried absorbable wound closure associated with excellent cosmesis for wounds under tension.

The modified buried dermal mattress suture technique produces excellent cosmetic results in closing elliptical excisions on thick dermal cutaneous anatomic areas under considerable wound tension, which makes it an excellent alternative for patients living long distances from physician referral centers.
