QUILLED SUTURE

This suture technique is a method commonly used to distribute the tension of a suture over a larger surface area. It is carried out utilizing a piece of gauze or a piece of pipe from an old delivery set. You can use vertical or horizontal matrix suture techniques in this method.

It uses vertical horizontal suture technique and pipes from the export set.

  1. First, two intravenous drip tubes are cut, approximately the length of the incision. Two wrapped gauze can also be used instead of pipes.
  2. The needle is placed approximately 8–10 mm from the edge of the distal incision. In this way, enough space is provided to place the matrix suture at right angles to the incision line.
  3. The incision line is passed and the needle is lifted from the tissue at an equal distance from the edge near the incision.
  4. The needle is turned upside down and care is taken to place it on the same side, about 4 mm from the edge. In this way, a suture is created at right angles to the line of the incision.
  5. It is moved backwards from the incision area and the needle is brought to a distance of 4 mm from the far edge. In this way, a ring is created on the side of the incision where you place the pipe piece.
  6. Before all the suture material is passed through the tissue, a short tube is placed under the nearby suture and the suture is pulled tight. Because: The pipe should run parallel to the incision line. Pulling the suture tight will keep the tube in place.
  7. Place the other tube piece on the far side of the incision parallel to the incision and between the two entry points of the suture. The suture is fixed utilizing a knot that will allow it to be located above the tube. Thus, the pipe will remain in place in a fixed position on the far side.
  8. To help keep each tube piece in place; vertical matrix sutures cut along the incision line continue to be placed along the line. In this way, the tension from the suture in the two pipelines is spread over a larger surface area.
