Example text

2. While re ecting back the dermis, the suture needle is inserted at 90 degrees into the underside o the dermis 2 mm distant rom the incised w ound edge. 3. The f rst bite is executed by ollow ing the curvature o the needle and allow ing the needle to exit in the incised w ound edge. The size o this bite is based on the size o the needle, the thickness o the dermis, and the need or and tolerance o eversion. The needle’s zenith w ith respect to the w ound sur ace should be betw een the entry and exit points.

Figure 3-19. The instrument tie or absorbable suture material, step 8: the hands are then pulled in opposite directions, parallel to the wound axis, pulling the throw tight and securing the knot. For most braided suture materials, three throws is adequate, while or some mono lament suture a ourth throw may be added. Suture Materials, Knot Tying, and Postoperative Care square knot. To execute this maneuver, the rst throw is placed as a surgeon’s knot. The next throw is not tightened to lock the surgeon’s knot, but rather leaves 1-2 mm o space betw een the surgeon’s knot throw and the subsequent throw s.

The needle is inserted through the underside of the dermis and moves upward and outward in the dermis. F Figure 4-3F. The needle is then inserted through the contralateral incised wound edge before moving upwards and outwards away from the wound edge. The Buried Vertical Mattress Suture G Figure 4-3G. The needle continues its rotation and exits in the deeper dermis. Tips and Pearls This technique requires some practice to m aster, though once m astered it is straight orw ard to execute. The f rst bite may also be f nessed by f rst re ecting the w ound edge back sharply during needle insertion and then returning the edge medially a ter the apex has been reached.
