Incisional hernias in patients with aortic aneurysmal disease: the importance of suture technique. (1/1368)

OBJECTIVE: To study the rate of incisional hernia at 12 months in patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm repair compared with others undergoing other surgery through midline incisions. METHODS: A prospective study of 1023 patients, 85 of these with aneurysmal disease. Wounds were continuously closed and the suture technique was monitored by the suture length to wound length ratio. RESULTS: Wound incisions were longer and operations lasted longer in aneurysm patients than in others. Incisional hernia was less common if closure was with a suture length to wound length ratio of at least four. Wounds were closed with a ratio of four or more in 39% (33 of 85) of aneurysm patients and in 59% (546 of 923) of others (p < 0.01). In aneurysm patients no wound dehiscence was recorded, the rate of wound infection was low and incisional hernia occurred in the same amount as in others. CONCLUSIONS: It is concluded that the rate of incisional hernia is similar in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysmal disease and others. Wounds are closed with a less meticulous suture technique in aneurysm patients.  (+info)

Zernike representation of corneal topography height data after nonmechanical penetrating keratoplasty. (2/1368)

PURPOSE: To demonstrate a mathematical method for decomposition of discrete corneal topography height data into a set of Zernike polynomials and to demonstrate the clinical applicability of these computations in the postkeratoplasty cornea. METHODS: Fifty consecutive patients with either Fuchs' dystrophy (n = 20) or keratoconus (n = 30) were seen at 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year (before suture removal) and again after suture removal following nonmechanical trephination with the excimer laser. Patients were assessed using regular keratometry, corneal topography (TMS-1, simulated keratometry [SimK]), subjective refraction, and best-corrected visual acuity (VA) at each interval. A set of Zernike coefficients with radial degree 8 was calculated to fit two model surfaces: a complete representation (TOTAL) and a representation with parabolic terms only to define an approximate spherocylindrical surface (PARABOLIC). The root mean square error (RMS) was calculated comparing the corneal raw height data with TOTAL (TOTALRMS) and PARABOLIC (PARABOLICRMS). The cylinder of subjective refraction was correlated with the keratometric readings, the SimK, and the respective Zernike parameter. Visual acuity was correlated with the tilt components of the Zernike expansion. RESULTS: The measured corneal surface could be approximated by the composed surface 1 with TOTALRMS < or = 1.93 microm and by surface 2 with PARABOLICRMS < or = 3.66 microm. Mean keratometric reading after suture removal was 2.8+/-0.6 D. At all follow-up examinations, the SimK yielded higher values, whereas the keratometric reading and the refractive cylinder yielded lower values than the respective Zernike parameter. The correlation of the Zernike representation and the refractive cylinder (P = 0.02 at 3 months, P = 0.05 at 6 months and at 1 year, and P = 0.01 after suture removal) was much better than the correlation of the SimK and refractive cylinder (P = 0.3 at 3 months, P = 0.4 at 6 months, P = 0.2 at 1 year, and P = 0.1 after suture removal). Visual acuity increased from 0.23+/-0.10 at the 3-month evaluation to 0.54+/-0.19 after suture removal. After suture removal, there was a statistically significant inverse correlation between VA and tilt (P = 0.02 in patients with keratoconus and P = 0.05 in those with Fuchs' dystrophy). CONCLUSIONS: Zernike representation of corneal topography height data renders a reconstruction of clinically relevant corneal topography parameters with a marked reduction of redundance and a small error. Correlation of amount/axis of refractive cylinder with respective Zernike parameters is more accurate than with keratometry or respective SimK values of corneal topography analysis.  (+info)

Pseudoaneurysm of the vertebral artery. (3/1368)

Pseudoaneurysms of the vertebral artery are rare. Their treatment depends on the location, size, cause, and coexisting injuries.

Mesh-and-glue technique to prevent leakage of cerebrospinal fluid after implantation of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene dura substitute--technical note. (4/1368)

Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) can be used as a dura substitute but is associated with leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the suture line. Fibrin glue alone may not prevent this problem. This new method for sealing the suture line in ePTFE membrane uses an absorbable polyglycoic acid mesh soaked with fibrinogen fluid placed on the suture line. Thrombin fluid is then slowly applied to the wet mesh, forming a large fibrin membrane reinforced by the mesh over the suture line. Only one of 33 patients in whom this technique was used had CSF leakage, whereas 12 of 59 patients in whom a dural defect was closed with ePTFE alone showed postoperative subcutaneous CSF collection (p < 0.05). Our clinical experiences clearly show the efficacy of the mesh-and-glue technique to prevent CSF leakage after artificial dural substitution. Mesh and glue can provide an adequate repair for small dural defect. The mesh-and-glue technique may also be used for arachnoid sealing in spinal surgery.  (+info)

Closure techniques for fetoscopic access sites in the rabbit at mid-gestation. (5/1368)

Operative fetoscopy may be limited by its relatively high associated risk of preterm prelabour rupture of membranes. The objective of this study was to study closure techniques of the access site for fetoscopy in the mid-gestational rabbit. A total of 32 does (288 amniotic sacs) at 22 days gestational age (GA; term = 32 days) underwent 14 gauge needle fetoscopy, by puncture through surgically exposed amnion. Entry site was randomly allocated to four closure technique groups: myometrial suture (n = 14), fibrin sealant (n = 15), autologous maternal blood plug (n = 13), collagen plug (n = 14); 16 sacs were left unclosed (positive controls), and the unmanipulated 216 sacs were negative controls. Membrane integrity, presence of amniotic fluid and fetal lung to body weight ratio (FLBWR) were evaluated at 31 days GA. Following fetoscopy without an attempt to close the membranes, amniotic integrity was restored in 41% of cases (amniotic integrity in controls 94%; P = 0.00001). When the access site was surgically closed, the amnion resealed in 20-44% of cases, but none of the tested techniques was significantly better than the others or than positive controls. Permanent amniotic disruption was associated with a significantly lower FLBWR in all groups. In conclusion, the rate of fetoscopy-induced permanent membrane defects in this model did not improve by using any of the closure techniques tested here.  (+info)

Everting suture correction of lower lid involutional entropion. (6/1368)

AIMS: To assess the long term efficacy of everting sutures in the correction of lower lid involutional entropion and to quantify the effect upon lower lid retractor function. METHODS: A prospective single armed clinical trial of 62 eyelids in 57 patients undergoing everting suture correction of involutional entropion. Patients were assessed preoperatively and at 6, 12, 24, and 48 months postoperatively. The main outcome variables were lower lid position and the change in lower lid retractor function. RESULTS: When compared with the non-entropic side, the entropic lid had a greater degree of horizontal laxity and poorer lower lid retractor function. These differences however, were not significant. At the conclusion of the study and after a mean follow up period of 31 months, the entropion had recurred in 15% of the patients. There were no treatment failures in the group of five patients with recurrent entropion. The improvement in lower lid retractor function after the insertion of lower lid everting sutures did not reach statistical significance. There was no significant difference between the treatment failure group and the group with a successful outcome with regard to: the degree of horizontal lid laxity or lower lid retractor function present preoperatively; patient age or sex; an earlier history of surgery for entropion. There was neither a demonstrable learning effect nor a significant intersurgeon difference in outcome. The overall 4 year mortality rate was 30%. CONCLUSIONS: The use of everting sutures in the correction of primary or recurrent lower lid involutional entropion is a simple, successful, long lasting, and cost effective procedure.  (+info)

Screw versus suture fixation of Mitchell's osteotomy. A prospective, randomised study. (7/1368)

We studied prospectively 30 patients who had a Mitchell's osteotomy secured by either a suture followed by immobilisation in a plaster boot for six weeks, or by a cortical screw with early mobilisation. The mean time for return to social activities after fixation by a screw was 2.9 weeks and to work 4.9 weeks, which was significantly earlier than those who had stabilisation by a suture (5.7 and 8.7 weeks, respectively; p < 0.001). Use of a screw also produced a higher degree of patient satisfaction at six weeks, and an earlier return to wearing normal footwear. The improvement in forefoot scores was significantly greater after fixation by a screw at six weeks (p = 0.036) and three months (p = 0.024). At one year, two screws had been removed because of pain at the site of the screw head. Internal fixation of Mitchell's osteotomy by a screw allows the safe early mobilisation of patients and reduces the time required for convalescence.  (+info)

Increase in orthotopic murine corneal transplantation rejection rate with anterior synechiae. (8/1368)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the immunologic effect of anterior synechiae (AS) in a murine model of corneal transplantation. METHODS: Orthotopic penetrating keratoplasty with 12 interrupted sutures was performed on C57BL/6 donor mice and BALB/c recipient mice without AS (AS- group). In contrast to suturing in the AS- group, 3 of the 12 sutures were placed to create AS (AS+ group). The average graft opacity scores and rejection rates of both groups were compared. Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) reactions and delayed hypersensitivity (DH) were evaluated 3 weeks after transplantation. Corneal cytokine expression was evaluated. RESULTS: The opacity scores of the AS+ group were consistently greater than those of the AS- group, and the rejection rate of the AS+ group was significantly greater than that of the AS- group (86% versus 54%, P = 0.03). The AS+ group had significantly higher CTL activity compared with the AS- group. There was no significant difference in DH between the two groups. The cytokine expression pattern in the AS+ group became similar to that of the AS- group in which the grafts were rejected. CONCLUSIONS: These findings indicate that AS impairs ocular immune privilege by mediating CTL activity, but without intensifying the DH response. Therefore, AS is a critical risk factor in allograft rejection in a murine model of corneal transplantation.  (+info)

Results: There were 1413 (63.6%) male and 810 (36.4%) female patients. Mean age was 30.5 ± 29.2 ...
The simple interrupted suture is the most common skin closure method. Horizontal mattress sutures facilitate tissue eversion with the use of 50% fewer sutures. Vertical mattress sutures are useful in wounds under significant tension. Running sutures speed the closure of uncomplicated linear wounds. Subcuticular running sutures yield cosmetically pleasing results in wounds under mild tension.Optimal wound healing and epithelial migration occur in a moist environment free of coagulum or scab interposed between the healing surfaces. Epithelialization takes 2-3 days with air exposure, but only 18-24 hours with occlusion. So a light coat of antibiotic ointment and an occlusive dressing for 24-48 hours is beneficial. Most incisions may be safely cleansed with soap and water after this time. Sutures are removed after 3-5 days in the face and neck, 7-10 days in most other sites, and 10-14 days in the hands and feet. Suture marks are reduced by minimal tension on the skin closure and timely suture ...

Letter to the Editor. Suture Techniques during Laparoscopic and Robot-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy: A Systematic Review and Quantitative Synthesis of Peri-Operative Outcomes. Dear Sir,. We would like to congratulate the authors of this systematic review [1] highlighting the evolution of suture techniques for partial nephrectomy in the era of minimally invasive surgery. The authors note the significant technical modification for the replacement of intracorporeal free-hand knot tying with a sliding clip technique [2]. This technique has revolutionised the practice of PN and reduced the risk of the cheese cutting effect with the conventional suturing techniques. It is worth noting that this laparoscopic technique was first described by Agarwal et al in the BJUI in 2007 [3]. Indeed one of the authors of this SR also published on the robotic application of this technique in a publication in European Urology in 2009 (2), which also was remiss in referencing the original description of the ...
Postoperative anastomotic suture line complications, such as hemorrhage and pseudoaneurysm, are often encountered in thoracic aortic surgery. To minimize these complications different anastomotic techniques have been developed. We hereby describe a new distal anastomotic technique, which involves positioning the graft inside the aorta at the distal end, reinforcing the suture line with an externally placed Teflon felt strip, and finishing the anastomosis with a circumferential and continued suture technique called backstitch.

Another locking running stitch is the interrupted stitch, which is the running stitch with the thread knotted after each suture. It is usually not the end of the world if one interrupted suture should loosen or dehisce as the remainder of the interrupted sutures will keep the wound closed. The ends are snipped flush with the skin at 10 days. It can be used as an initial layer for a longer, higher-tension wound in order to create a lower tension environment for closing the wound with deep dermal sutures within the wound followed by either simple interrupted or running percutaneous sutures closer to the wound margins. In essence, it is a â combo-interrupted subcutaneous and skin closure suture.â . Polypropylene (Prolene; Ethicon) suture (0, 2-0, 3-0, 4-0, and 5-0) was used throughout this study. This suture will be the anchor for the rest of the suture line. The suture needles, materials, and techniques selected are at the discretion of the surgeon or medical professional assessing the wound. An ...

Results. A total of 1 331 consecutive patients with CLI were treated using BTK PTA and 135 (10.1%) were approached with the pedal-plantar loop technique in order to recanalize the foot arteries. Target lesions were mostly occlusive and diffusely diseased, involving in most cases the tibial arteries as well as the in-flow and out-flow vessels. Acute success was achieved for tibial PTA in 100% of the cases, with ability to position and inflate the balloon and achieve adequate angiographic results without peri-procedural complications in all, whereas acute success for the pedal-plantar loop technique was 85%. Clinical improvement in functional status was obtained and maintained after an average of 12 months, with a significant improvement of transcutaneous oxygen tension after 15 days, 59±16 mmHg in the group of patients in which the foot arteries revascularization was successfully feasible, versus 42±12 mmHg in patients achieving patency of two BTK vessels at the ankle level with partial ...

Minimally invasive procedures such as diagnostic or operative laparoscopy has increasingly becoming the initial access of choice with benefits such as improved appearance such as less scarring and less pain than open procedures. More small surgical cuts made abdominally have been used to assist with the surgery, and the cosmetic outcome has become one of the main factors in determining the closure method. There are various techniques available including conventional suture, skin glue or adhesive tape, but it is mainly based on the surgeons preference and ultimately patients satisfaction and to date there is no gold standard on the skin closure method for laparoscopic port-site wound. This research aim to compare the closure method for small 5mm laparoscopic wound skin closure between conventional suture versus non-closure method where the surgical incision wound is simply covered with simple dressing after the operation. 5mm laparoscopic wound is a small surgical incision where disruption of ...

Renal biopsy is regarded as the gold standard for the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of patients with renal disease. The first renal biopsy dates back more than a century [4]. Advancements in the needle, as well as use of real-time ultrasonography, have gradually improved the technique and the yields of the biopsies [5]. The safety of the procedure has improved considerably, even in the hands of trainee physicians [5, 6]. However, renal biopsy can cause minor to serious complications. Bleeding manifestations include hematuria, hematoma, and profuse bleeding with a consequent need for blood transfusions, coil embolization, or surgical procedures such as nephrectomy; rarely, death can result [3]. Serious complications are rare when risk factors such as hypertension, bleeding, and clotting tests are within acceptable ranges [7, 8]. Our patient had severe hypertension periprocedurally, which is a well-known risk factor for bleeding. His platelet count and coagulation were within reference ...

Efficiency of post-operative sutured tissues depends on the state stress and strain, affecting the rate of wound healing. The objective of this study was to examine, the effect of suture size and stiffness, on the deformation of an incised continuous tissue. A simple running suture configuration was modeled and analyzed using 3D Finite Element Method (FEM). Prolene suture thread (Ethicon Inc.) of size 7-0 and 8-0 with varying material stiffness in the range of 6240 MPa to 30 MPa have been used whereas CryoValve aorta graft (Cryo Life Inc.) is considered as tissue material. Results show that the suture size has major impact on the deformation state of the tissue than the suture stiffness. Even though the difference in material stiffness caused a negligible change in strain, there is 55% increase in max principal strain away from suture line. Moreover, altering the suture size from 7-0 to 8-0 resulted in a 12% reduction in max tissue stresses. Because of the localization of max stress around the ...
Now, that may sound a bit weird, to shoot for a somewhat extensive number of stitches or stitch combinations in one alphabet. But its not, really. The alphabet gives coherence to a plan for stitch exploration, but the manner in which one goes about that exploration makes the outcome for each individuals embroidered letters unique.. To explain: You have an alphabet - that is, a collection of 26 designs (A-Z). Following some basic principles of stitch placement, each letter (or design) can be worked in myriad ways, using any variety of possible stitch combinations out of the 25 or so stitches and combinations explored.. Since Ive received a lot of questions about the stitches being used in the floral sneak peeks youve seen lately, I thought Id talk a little more about the stitches and combinations in the photos. ...

However these limited number of stitches are used in an amazing number of combinations to create stitch patterns. We then repeat those stitch patterns to shape our items. I have been practicing the art of crochet for over 56 years and I have found that over the years stitch patterns as well as the items we make from those stitch patterns come in and out of fashion and that is why I maintain the idea everything old is new again. The same basic stitches worked in the same old patterns but with new names. I constantly find old stitch patterns with names that are new to me. I tend to use the old names but always advise the stitch pattern may have several other new names ...

I used the leftovers of the burnout velvet that I made a kimono with - the fabric is so pretty I could not waste it . What I did not think about was the nap of the velvet so the tank fabric is cut different to the kimono - my astute sewing friend noticed this when we went out for tea ( Hello Kelly ) . Also I used the leftover silk from the kimono bands to make my own bias binding instead of using the facings supplied with the pattern. My bias bindings were wibbly wobbly and at one point I did not sew them properly onto the fabric so I had to cut them off and start again ( no way I was unpicking this fabric which frays easily where the burnout part is ) .But overall the tank top was a success and has made up a nice `twin set ...
Because the fabric is lightweight my friend wisely suggested I should add a lining. I had to buy some lining from the local craft shop which has a very small selection of dress fabrics and luckily they had some closely matching chiffon. I chose to underline the fabric and did hongkong seams especially as they may be in view from the back. The body of the pattern fit quite well but the sleeves were massive. I did realise this when looking at the pattern but went ahead hoping some Harry Potter magic might occur when I was sewing ( a bit like sewing faster when you are running out if thread hoping that will get you through ! ) When I put the jacket on I thought I was in for a wadder but after taking in about 4 cms from each seam on the sleeves and removing about 10cms off the length it starting looking a bit more hopeful. I used two vintage buttons and my nickyknack loop turner ...
Dear Mary. I do like stitch fun and this bullion/stem stitch and the colour of the over dyed thread you have chosen is beautiful. I must try this and use it as it would make a lovely boarder line. I have just been on Etsy and had a look at Colour Complements and they have a lovely range of over dyed thread I will have to invest in this thread next time I want a colourful outline. I looked at other Etsy thread sites and there is a beautiful Japanese gold from TheHauserGallery similar to the Japanese gold you used on the Medallion project, I was very tempted to buy some but I will have to think on that. Thanks so much for the tips and techniques on the stitch fun bullion/stem stitch, more please.. Regards Anita Simmance. ...

Macroscopically, tissue-scaffold degradation with the suture method and tissue-scaffold folding with the control method were observed after 4 weeks. In comparison, the frame method demonstrated intact tissue scaffolds after 4 weeks. H&E staining showed progressive cell repopulation over the course of the experiment in all groups with acute and chronic inflammation observed in suture and control methods throughout the duration of the study. Immunohistochemistry quantification of CD3, CD 31, CD 34, CD 163, and αSMA showed a statistically significant differences between the suture, control and frame methods (P < 0.05) at both time points. The average tensile strength was 4.03 ± 0.49, 7.45 ± 0.49 and 5.72 ± 1.34 (MPa) after 1 week and 0.55 ± 0.26, 0.12 ± 0.03 and 0.41 ± 0.32 (MPa) after 4 weeks in the suture, control, and frame methods; respectively. TEM analysis showed an increase in inflammatory cells in both suture and control methods following implantation. Conclusion Rat subcutaneous ...
6. Methods: From February 2019 to May 2019, we included 50 patients who received uni-portal VATS for lung disease or mediastinal disease and simple continuous suture to strengthen the closure of intra- muscle combined with removal-free stitches on the skin. After an episiotomy or a second-degree tear, continuous suturing techniques, compared with interrupted suturing methods, for perineal closure are associated with less short-term pain, less need for analgesia, and less need for suture removal, according to an intervention review conducted by the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group. Purse-string Suture - This method is a type of continuous suture that can be tightened, just like the strings in the drawstring bag. The continuous suture technique with absorbable suture does not require suture removal and provides support for the wound for a longer period of time. This will give the appearance of a single simple interrupted suture at the midpoint in the wound. Prompt removal reduces the risk ...

However, the ideal technique has often been a subject of debate. Therefore, our objective was to review the current literature in an attempt to find objective evidence supporting the superiority of one particular technique. A PubMed and OVID on-line search was performed in November 2007 using the following keywords: microvascular anastomoses, microsurgical anastomosis, continuous suture, interrupted suture, mattress suture, and sleeve anastomosis. Our literature review found no difference in short- and/or long-term patency rates ...

protrusion of viscera through all tissue layers. Objective: To compare the cosmetic results 12 months after treatment and complications associated with simple interrupted sutures (SIS) versus running subcuticular sutures (RSS) in facial surgery. In a recent publication, we proposed that the subarticular terminology is a misnomer, and this technique should be described as intradermal instead. I would suggest consulting with an expert in scar revision for optimal results. Running subcuticular suture The benefit of this suture is the minimal epidermal puncture points allowing the suture to be left in place longer without suture-track scarring. Which type of needle is preferred for suturing skin? Straight needles are very convenient for efficient and neat sub-cuticular sutures. The aim of this study is to compare aesthetic results of two different type of sutures (subcuticular versus synthetic glue) in post-thyroidectomy incisions. It is a randomized clinical trial (single blinded) designed as a ...
Although the laparoscopic myomectomy has benefits over the abdominal approach, such as less blood loss, less hemoglobin drop post-operatively, decreased post-operative pain and fewer overall complications, it is a difficult procedure, which often requires greater operative time to perform. In the current climate of attempting to reduce health care expenditures, even though the minimally invasive approach offers the advantage of reduced hospital stay, a deterrent for hospital administration and surgeons may be the increased operative time it may require. Barbed suture is a relatively new material available in gynecologic surgery. Barbs are cut into the suture with the barbs facing in a direction opposite that of the needle. The barbs allow for anchoring of the suture in tissues, which prevents migration and allows suturing without knot tying. This study will be a single-centre non-blinded randomized controlled trial comparing laparoscopic myomectomy with barbed suture versus traditional suture ...
Suture devices, primarily for use in endoscopic surgery, include a suture needle made of bioabsorbable material for pulling a length of suture material through bodily tissue allowing the suture needle to be inadvertently or intentionally left in the tissue, and a suture needle having a length of suture material attached thereto with a contractible loop or passage at the proximal end of the suture material to allow the suture needle to be passed therethrough, the loop or passage contracting to clamp or grip the suture material to function similar to a conventional tied suture knot.

On the face, a 6-0 or 7-0 monofilament suture maybe used, though fast-absorbing gut may be used on the eyelids and ears to obviate the need for suture removal. When the goal of the running alternating simple and vertical mattress suture placement is solely to encourage wound-edge eversion, fine-gauge suture material may be used on the extremities as well. Otherwise, 5-0 monofilament suture material is used if there is minimal tension, and 4-0 monofilament suture is useful in areas under moderate tension where the goal of suture placement is relieving tension as well as epidermal approximation. In select high-tension areas, 3-0 monofilament suture may be utilized as well. ...

The purpose is to test a coated polyglycolic acid multifilament suture in gastrointestinal surgery as part of a controlled randomized single blinded parallel group trial. The applicability and safety of the strand material used in two suture techniques (2-layer suture technique vs. 1-layer running) are to be tested on the basis of handling characteristics, the operative time consumed for the construction of the 1st anastomosis, the average time of the hospital duration for both patient groups, and the frequency of postoperative complications after discharge, 1 month and a maximum of 3-4 months. The used suture units are counted and the length of sutures determined which will be an indirect measurement of the costs of suture material for the two techniques ...

When tying suture knots, properly squaring successive throws is important. That is, each tie must be laid down perfectly parallel to the previous tie by reversing the loops in each successive throw. When tying rope, this is accomplished using the memory aide left over right and twist, and then right over left and twist. With instrument ties, this is accomplished by alternating sides as the suture is twisted around the needle driver. This procedure is important in preventing the creation of a granny knot, which tends to slip and is inherently weaker than a proper square knot. The first throw in the knotting sequence is often looped or twisted twice, producing the surgeons knot. When the desired number of throws is completed, the suture material is cut (if interrupted sutures are used) or the next suture may be placed (if running sutures are used). An absolute minimum of three throws are needed for knot security, but some sutures require more throws to remain tied. When in doubt, five throws ...
SUTURE REMOVALTo remove the interrupted sutures, grasp the suture at the knot with a toothed forceps and pull it gently to expose the portion of the stitch under the skin. This will delay the healing process. 1 Early removal of sutures can minimize the effect of cross- 9. In other places, if resuturing is not necessary, adhesive tapes should be applied to approximate the wound edges as closely as possible. Purpose: to hold the suture needles. The visible part of the suture opposite the knot should be cut and the suture is removed by pulling it in the direction of the knot.If a continuous suture is applied, it is cut through, close at each skin orifice on one side and the cut sections are removed through the opposite side by gentle traction. 14.

After performing an aortotomy, there are a variety of techniques utilized for suture closure. There is no published data comparing the efficacy of various suture techniques. The goal of this study is to provide an ex-vivo quantitative assessment of resistance to leakage and dehiscence for three aortotomy closure techniques. An ex-vivo model was developed utilizing explanted porcine aorta. Aortotomies were closed using one of three techniques: 1) single layer baseball stitch 2) double layer baseball stitch 3) horizontal mattress stitch with a top layer baseball stitch. The aorta was pressurized with saline using an apparatus which captured all leaked fluid. The intra-aortic pressure was adjusted over 8 increments from 110 to 375 mmHg. Leakage rates were determined at each pressure level. Ten aortotomies were performed for each technique, resulting in 240 calculated leakage rates. At all pressures, the horizontal mattress group was measured to have significantly less leakage when compared to single or

Background During operations surgeons make a cut (incision) in the skin to gain access to the surgical site. Incisions are closed with sutures (stitches), staples, tissue adhesives or tapes. Sutures can be continuous or interrupted. Continuous sutures are usually inserted underneath the skin surface using absorbable or non-absorbable suture material. Interrupted sutures involve the full thickness of the skin and are usually non-absorbable (but not always).. Impaired wound healing increases costs of health care and leads to poor cosmetic results. We investigated whether it is better to use continuous or interrupted sutures to close wounds after non-childbirth surgery by performing a thorough search of the medical literature for randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that compared these two methods of skin closure (in August 2013).. Study characteristics We identified five RCTs with a total of 827 participants. Seven hundred thirty participants (384 received continuous sutures and 346 interrupted ...

Because every patient is different, the AMC uses several different surgical techniques to repair cranial cruciate ligaments. Two common techniques are known by acronyms: TPLO, which stands for tibial plateau leveling osteotomy, and TTA, or tibial tuberosity advancement. Both of these techniques cut and replace a section of the tibia using special bone plates. The bone is replaced in a fashion to improve joint biomechanics. The postoperative x-ray shown here demonstrates the TPLO repair.. Another type of surgical repair involves using suture material as a stand in for the torn ligament. The extracapsular lateral fabellotibial suture technique and the Tightrope® procedure are examples of a suture method of repair. Board certified surgeons at AMC prefer the TPLO and the extracapsular lateral fabellotibial suture techniques. Postoperatively, rehabilitation therapy is often prescribed to improve the rate of recovery through AMCs Tina Santi Flaherty Rehabilitation & Fitness Service.. Dogs with an ...

Sutures are used to close wounds and speed up the natural healing process, but they can also complicate matters by causing damage to soft tissues with their stiff fibers. To remedy the problem, researchers from Montreal have developed innovative tough gel sheathed (TGS) sutures inspired by the human tendon.. These next-generation sutures contain a slippery, yet tough gel envelop, imitating the structure of soft connective tissues. In putting the TGS sutures to the test, the researchers found that the nearly frictionless gel surface mitigated the damage typically caused by traditional sutures.. Conventional sutures have been around for centuries and are used to hold wounds together until the healing process is complete. But they are far from ideal for tissue repair. The rough fibers can slice and damage already fragile tissues, leading to discomfort and post-surgery complications.. ...

Dr. Robert F. LaPrade operated on my right knee in May of 2010. I was hit by a car on my bicycle near Horsetooth Reservoir in CO. I was life flighted to MCR in Loveland, CO. My orthopedic injuries were severe, but totally missesd by the orthopedic team at Poudre. I could not bear weight on my right side though I tried repeatedly, but finally I went and got an MRI and one of the orthopedic surgeons that I worked with was shocked when he saw the MRI result. My right knee was totally destroyed; ACL, MCL, PCL all severely torn; the patella was the only thing intact in my right knee.

Which knot?. It has been shown that different knot configurations suit particular suture materials better than others, according to a new study published in Polymers by Abellan et al. (April 2016). It included two suture materials available from Ostralos, silk and polyamide (nylon). As the knot is the weakest part of any suture, it deserved a closer look.. Five different suture materials using three different knot configurations were tested mechanically and physically in vitro. The mechanical method involved a Quasar 5 Universal Testing Machine to separate the sutures at an established mandible speed. The physical method exposed sutures to either pH conditions, ranging from pH 4 to 9, or thermal cycle fluctuations to simulate oral conditions. The total sample size amounted to 1350 specimens. The knots employed are as follows.. Knot A - three-throw forward, one forward and one reverse. Knot B - two-throw forward, one reverse and one forward. Knot C - one-throw forward, two forward and one ...
Suture selection is a crucial and integral factor to ensuring successful surgical outcomes. Suture materials are considered surgical implants because they remain inside in the patients body upon discharge.

Using the wrong suture material may lead to unintended consequences such as wound dehiscence, abscess formation or tissue reaction. This session will enable veterinary technicians to understand the basis for suture material selection and usage.

  • This research aim to compare the closure method for small 5mm laparoscopic wound skin closure between conventional suture versus non-closure method where the surgical incision wound is simply covered with simple dressing after the operation. (
  • This research will give surgeons information about the most effective surgical technique for the patient particularly in 5mm port-site wound closure in terms of cosmetic outcome, perception of pain, and wound complications. (
  • We will randomly assign between the lateral 5mm port-site - at least two ports in each patient to be closed either using absorbable suture or non-closure where simple dressing will be applied over the wound. (
  • The material cost is cheaper compared to suture and operating time will be reduced by implementing the non-closure method therefore the results of this study may help many surgeons in the future to provide the optimal and cost effective care for their patients. (
  • Although the main purpose of suture placement remains adequate wound apposition and closure, meticulous attention to appropriate suture placement cannot only minimize postoperative astigmatism, but also may facilitate more rapid visual recovery and lead to a more stable wound long term. (

  • Inserting it perpendicularly helps in a wider bite of deeper tissue to be included in the suture than at the surface leading to rapid wound healing. (
  • Running locked sutures have an increased risk of impairing the microcirculation surrounding the wound, and they can cause tissue strangulation if placed too tightly. (
  • Immediately after a tendon repair, the tendon itself will contribute nothing to the strength of the repair, which is therefore entirely dependent on the suture material and the technique used, as well as meticulous surgical technique and careful tissue handling. (
  • The text and videos not only cover essential suturing techniques, but merge these concepts with critical principles of wound healing, tissue biomechanics, ergonomics, and the physical properties of common ophthalmic sutures and surgical needles. (
  • Whether performing a simple interrupted suture after draining a tooth abscess, or releasing the periosteum to close a large incision after alveolar ridge augmentation, many of the principles of tissue handling, instrumentation, and possible complications are the same. (

  • Various methods and materials have been used (sutures, stents, paste dressings, tissue tacks and adhesives) for precise flap placement. (
  • The first requirement is to possess a suture kit that includes, at least, the basic tools of a needle holder, toothed tissue forceps (with or without a skin hook), fine suture scissors and adequate suturing material. (
  • Absorbable suture material is normally used for deep tissue wound stitching (buried sutures). (
  • Using absorbable suture thread, enter the needle in the subcutaneous tissue and exit through the dermal tissue on the same side. (
  • The ultimate goal is that scar tissue will develop around the suture, which maximizes the stability of the knee. (
  • The tissue has to be sterilized to let suture placement be proper. (
  • The tissue that is being sutured should not be subjected to excessive stress to diminish risk of tissue strangulation. (
  • The suture has to be tightened adequately to approximate wound edges minus constricting the tissue. (
  • An important part of the surgical procedure is suture, which plays an important role in healing, reconstructing and remodeling soft tissue and promoting hemostasis of the region. (

  • Suturing is an important aspect of any Dental / Surgical procedure where there is either cutting or injury to the soft tissue in the oral cavity. (
  • We hypothesized that an all-inside button deployment technique would allow for a low risk to medial soft tissue structures. (
  • A medial incision was then performed to evaluate the relationship of the suture buttons to the medial soft tissue structures and the medial malleolus. (
  • The necessity of a medial incision to evaluate for soft tissue entrapment may not be necessary in all patients, as this technique appears to be safe, accurate, and reproducible. (
  • This technique may also be used in the context of atrophic skin, as the broader anchoring bites may help limit tissue tear-through that may be seen with a simple interrupted suture. (
  • The suture suspension techniques are described to lift, if necessary to form volume and to correct position of soft tissue without traditional incisions. (
  • Therefore, a new suture technique was designed and tested to close a simpler type of annular incision. (
  • METHODS: A new suture technique, the modified purse-string suture, was introduced into a re-validated nonlinear finite element human disk model after creating a standard transverse slit incision, as well as two other suture techniques: either two simple sutures, or a horizontal crossed suture, and compared their contact pressure on the cleft contact surface. (
  • Thus, the purpose of this study was to introduce a modified incision design and a suturing technique (sling and tag [SAT]) to enhance the results of CAF for root coverage. (

  • The parallel incision lines were approximated with interrupted stabilization sutures at the midline [Figures [Figures8 8 and and9] 9] and other location along the borders of the incision to ensure proper alignment of the lip midline with the midline of the teeth and then a continuous interlocking suture was used to approximate both flaps. (
  • The purpose of the technique is to provide a cosmetic incision for pelvic surgery. (
  • Buried sutures provide support to the wound and reduce tension on the wound edges, allowing better epidermal approximation of the wound. (
  • Comparison of Running Cutaneous Suture Spacing During Linear Wound Closures and the Effect on Wound Cosmesis of the Face and Neck: A Randomized Clinical Trial. (
  • Proper placement of sutures enhances the precise approximation of the wound edges, which helps minimize and redistribute skin tension. (
  • Compared with running (continuous) sutures, interrupted sutures are easy to place, have greater tensile strength, and have less potential for causing wound edema and impaired cutaneous circulation. (

(
  • Two types of suture material should be available and used depending on the type of wound. (
  • This type of suture material must be removed once the wound has healed. (
  • Simple Interrupted Method - This suturing technique provides a better result cosmetically due to a greater eversion of the wound edge that produces a thinner, less visible scar. (
  • Stabilize the edge of the wound with either a skin hook or toothed forceps and enter the suturing needle perpendicularly from three to five millimeters away from the edge of the wound. (
