at the surface. Eversion is more easily obtained when the hand is fully pronated and the skin is entered with the needle at a 90° angle and angled slightly away from the skin edge. Suture spacing Spacing between sutures is typically equal to the distance from needle entry to wound margin. Sutures should enter and exit at an equal distance from the wound margin. A vertical mattress suture (see figure ) is sometimes used instead of a layered closure, provided skin tension is not marked; it also helps ensure (...) proper edge eversion in loose tissue. A running suture (see figure ) is quicker to place than interrupted sutures and can be used when wound edges are well aligned. Vertical mattress suture The first pass of the needle is the same as a large simple suture, but instead of tying off, another smaller bite is taken back across the wound to end on the starting side. Both ends are pulled up to closely align (approximate) the wound edges. Points A and B must be at the same depth, as must points C and D

183. Nonappositional repair of iridodialysis. (Abstract)

Nonappositional repair of iridodialysis. We describe a novel "hang-back" surgical approach for repairing an iridodialysis. Instead of repositioning the iris tightly to the sclera, the detached peripheral iris is suspended by a suture inside the normal iris insertion, reducing corectopia and avoiding inadvertent coverage of the trabecular meshwork by peripheral iris. A horizontal mattress suture is placed ab interno via a paracentesis site and tightened to bring the iris periphery to inside

185. A Biomechanical Analysis of Point of Failure During Lateral-Row Tensioning in Transosseous-Equivalent Rotator Cuff Repair. (Abstract)

A Biomechanical Analysis of Point of Failure During Lateral-Row Tensioning in Transosseous-Equivalent Rotator Cuff Repair. The purpose of this study was to determine the maximum load and point of failure of the construct during tensioning of the lateral row of a transosseous-equivalent (TOE) rotator cuff repair.In 6 fresh-frozen human shoulders, a TOE rotator cuff repair was performed, with 1 suture from each medial anchor passed through the tendon and tied in a horizontal mattress pattern. One (...) of 2 limbs from each of 2 medial anchors was pulled laterally over the tendon. After preparation of the lateral bone for anchor placement, the 2 limbs were passed through the polyether ether ketone (PEEK) eyelet of a knotless anchor and tied to a tensiometer. The lateral anchor was placed into the prepared bone tunnel but not fully seated. Tensioning of the lateral-row repair was simulated by pulling the tensiometer to tighten the suture limbs as they passed through the eyelet of the knotless

186. Modified Edge-to-Edge Technique for Correction of Congenital Mitral Regurgitation in Infants and Children. (Abstract)

Modified Edge-to-Edge Technique for Correction of Congenital Mitral Regurgitation in Infants and Children. Since 2008, 28 patients with congenital mitral regurgitation have undergone mitral valve repair with a modified edge-to-edge technique at our institution. The regurgitant mitral leaflet was sutured with a pledget-reinforced, horizontal mattress suture with No. 4-0 polypropylene on the ventricle side and a pledget-reinforced mattress suture with Gore-Tex sutures (W.L. Gore & Associates (...) , Flagstaff, AZ) and Dacron pledgets (Chest, Shanghai) placed on the anterior and posterior annulus corresponding to the edge-to-edge suturing site. Early results are encouraging, but a longer follow-up is needed.Copyright © 2011 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

187. Automated remote transapical wound closure system study. (Abstract)

tested for remote automated placement of 2 pledgeted horizontal mattress sutures delivered concentrically around a transmural apical guidewire, which provided a tract to enable therapeutic intervention. Mechanical pledgeted knots secured these sutures after cannula removal.Automated transapical closures were created in 47 ex vivo porcine hearts and in 10 human cadavers, 8 through a thoracotomy and 2 thoracoscopically. Automated apical closures achieved hemostasis in an acute beating heart thoracotomy (...) model in 3 anesthetized pigs. An ex vivo porcine heart pressurized infusate model demonstrated the intraventricular pressure tolerated by automated closures (mean, 327 mm Hg) compared with hand-sutured closures (mean, 303 mm Hg).All automated apical closures were effective. Early results encourage further evaluation.Copyright © 2011 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

188. Technique for aortic valve annuloplasty using an intra-annular "hemispherical" frame. Full Text available with Trip Pro

from a water reservoir at a constant pressure of 100 mm Hg, and valve leak was measured by timed collection in a beaker. Baseline leak was negligible, and the 2 commissures adjacent to the right coronary leaflet were incised vertically to create severe valve insufficiency. Through a transverse aortotomy, a "hemispherical" annuloplasty frame was sutured to the aortic valve annulus with horizontal mattress sutures. The 3 posts of the frame were sutured first to the 3 subcommissural regions to align (...) the device horizontally and vertically. The 3 frame curvatures then were sutured into the leaflet annuli using horizontal mattress "looping" sutures, supported with supra-annular pledgets. Post-repair valve leak was measured, and significance of the change was assessed with a 2-tailed paired t test. One survival implant was evaluated in an intact calf.Subcommissural incision disrupted annular geometry and created a valve leak of 1400 ± 847 mL/min (mean ± standard deviation).

) an inside-out repair with horizontal mattress sutures, and (6) a partial meniscectomy. The effects of these different types of meniscal manipulation on the magnitude and location of the peak contact pressure were assessed at 14% and 45% of the gait cycle.The peak tibial contact pressure in the intact knees was 6 +/- 0.5 MPa and 7.4 +/- 0.6 MPa at 14% and 45% of the gait cycle, respectively. The magnitude and location of the peak contact pressure were not affected by radial tears involving up to 60 (...) % of the meniscal rim width. Radial tears involving 90% resulted in a posterocentral shift in peak-pressure location manifested by an increase in pressure in that quadrant of 1.3 +/- 0.5 MPa at 14% of the gait cycle relative to the intact condition. Inside-out mattress suture repair of a 90% tear did not restore the location of the pressure peak to that of the intact knee. Partial meniscectomy led to a further increase in contact pressure in the posterocentral quadrant of 1.4 +/- 0.7 MPa at 14% of the gait

190. Comparative evaluation of the tendon-bone interface contact pressure in different single- versus double-row suture anchor repair techniques Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comparative evaluation of the tendon-bone interface contact pressure in different single- versus double-row suture anchor repair techniques The aim of the study was to evaluate the time zero contact pressure over a defined rotator cuff footprint using different repair and stitch techniques in an established sheep model. Forty fresh-frozen sheep shoulders were randomly assigned to five repair groups: single-row repair using simple stitches (SRA-s), single-row repair using horizontal mattress (...) stitches (SRA-m), and single-row repair using arthroscopic Mason-Allen stitches (SRA-ama). Double-row repair was either performed with a combination of simple and horizontal mattress stitches (DRA-sm) or with arthroscopic Mason-Allen/horizontal mattress stitches (DRA-amam). Investigations were performed using a pressure-sensitive film system. The average contact pressure and pressure pattern were measured for each group. Contact pressure was lowest in SRA-m followed by SRA-s. SRA-ama showed highest

Randomization was performed using the four block randomization system. Patients who failed the regular follow-up were excluded, and the two groups were compared for postoperative bleeding, hematoma, perforation and synechiae. Patients were asked to record pain levels using a visual analogue scale. The authors found (...) Use of nasal packs and intranasal septal splints following septoplasty. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of a trans-septum suturing technique with conventional nasal packing and intranasal splints in the classic septoplasty operation. The study is a prospective, randomized clinical trial. 114 patients underwent septoplasty for septal deviation and ensuing nasal obstruction. These patients were divided into two groups: packing (using intranasal septal splints and antibiotic

192. Horizontal mattress technique for superior oblique suture spacer. (Abstract)

Horizontal mattress technique for superior oblique suture spacer. Superior oblique tendon overaction and Brown syndrome have been managed surgically by means of tenotomy/tenectomy, use of a silicon expander, and elongation with autologous fascia lata. These solutions are problematic with respect to corrective precision, injury and complications, or surgical difficulty. We present a simple "mattress" suture spacer technique that allows a precise and secure intraoperative adjustment.

193. Biomechanical testing of a shape memory alloy suture in a meniscal suture model. (Abstract)

Biomechanical testing of a shape memory alloy suture in a meniscal suture model. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical results of meniscal repair in vitro by a nitinol suture and compare them with Ethibond (Ethicon, Somerville, NJ) and nylon.The 6 testing groups consisted of nitinol, Ethibond, and nylon sutures (No. 2-0 and No. 3-0). Sixty bovine menisci with a vertical longitudinal tear were repaired with 1 horizontal mattress suture and were fully immersed into a water (...) bath, adjusted to a tensile testing machine. All specimens were subjected to tensile testing, and force/displacement curves were obtained. Load to 5-mm gap, load to failure, tensile strength, stiffness, and mode of failure for each suture group were recorded. Statistical analysis included analysis of variance with Bonferroni correction for the post hoc multiple comparisons.Nylon sutures achieved the lowest scores in all measurements. Nitinol achieved better scores, but not significantly better

apical periodontitis and included in the study. The flap design consisted of two releasing incisions connected by a horizontal incision. The marginal incision involved the complete mobilization of the entire papilla in one interproximal space but in the other interproximal space the PBI was performed. Further apically a full thickness flap was raised. Following flap retraction, standard apical root-end resection and root-end filling was performed. Flap closure was achieved with microsurgical sutures (...) . The PBI was sutured with two to three interrupted sutures (size 7/0), the elevated papilla was reapproximated with vertical mattress sutures (size 7/0), which were removed 3-5 days after the surgery. The height of the interdental papilla was evaluated preoperatively and postoperatively after 1-, 3- and 12-month recall using plaster replicas. The loss of papilla height was measured using a laser scanner. Papilla paired sites were evaluated and statistically analysed.Most papilla recession took place

195. Optimizing biomechanical performance of the 4-strand cruciate flexor tendon repair. (Abstract)

groups were repaired using the cruciate core technique without a peripheral suture. The locking loops were set using 10%, 25%, 33%, or 50% of the tendon width and loaded to failure using a distraction rate of 20 mm/min. The 3 groups of tendons then were repaired by using the established optimal locking loop size. These 3 groups were combined with a simple running, cross-stitch, or the interlocking horizontal mattress (IHM) peripheral suture. Repairs were tested to failure and the load at a 2-mm gap (...) Optimizing biomechanical performance of the 4-strand cruciate flexor tendon repair. The purpose of this study was to determine whether increasing the size of the locking loop increased the repair strength of the cruciate 4-strand suture technique and to quantify the biomechanical properties that various peripheral suture techniques provide in the cruciate 4-strand suture technique.Fifty-six deep flexor tendons harvested from adult sheep hind limbs were divided randomly into 7 groups of 8.

196. Biomechanical study of cross-locked cruciate versus Strickland flexor tendon repair. (Abstract)

Biomechanical study of cross-locked cruciate versus Strickland flexor tendon repair. Zone II flexor tendon repairs may create a bulging effect with resistance to tendon gliding. A biomechanical study was performed comparing the 4-strand cross-locked cruciate (CLC) to a 4-strand Strickland repair, both with and without an interlocking horizontal mattress (IHM) suture, in terms of strength characteristics and work of flexion.Sixteen fresh-frozen human fingers were placed in a custom jig. Flexor (...) digitorum profundus tendons were sectioned at the A3 pulley level. Fingers were separated into 2 repair groups: 4-strand CLC and 4-strand Strickland core suture. Work of flexion was determined for each group, with and without an IHM circumferential suture. Final repair including IHM was tested for 2-mm gap failure and ultimate load to failure.The CLC-IHM had a significantly smaller increase in work of flexion than the Strickland-IHM. For both suture types, the circumferential suture resulted

, and therefore less invasive left atrial volume reduction technique to enhance the Cox maze procedure.The modified Cox maze III procedure with cryoablation or the left atrial maze procedure in association with mitral valve surgery was performed in 80 patients with atrial fibrillation and enlarged left atria (> or =60 mm). Among them, 44 patients had the concomitant volume reduction technique (VR group); continuous horizontal mattress sutures for left atrial plication were placed on the left atrial wall along (...) the pulmonary vein isolation line. Cryoablation was applied to the suture line so that the plicated left atrium is anatomically and electrically isolated. Another 36 patients did not have the volume reduction technique (control group).The VR group had preoperative left atrial diameters similar to those of the control group (67.1 +/- 7.8 vs 64.5 +/- 6.7 mm) and a longer preoperative duration of atrial fibrillation (14.1 +/- 5.4 vs 9.5 +/- 5.1 years, P < .05) but had smaller postoperative left atrial

suture anchor (Arthrex). The Scorpion suture passer places a stitch from inferior to superior through the torn rotator cuff. The suture is grabbed and reloaded into the Scorpion device. The device is then turned upside down, and a horizontal stitch is placed from superior to inferior. The stitch is retrieved again and reloaded a third time. The last pass is placed so that the final stitch passes anterior to the inferior suture but beyond the previously placed horizontal mattress stitch (...) Arthroscopic placement of a modified Mason-Allen stitch. Recent studies have shown all-arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs to have comparable clinical results to mini-open or open repairs. Previous drawbacks to arthroscopic repair have included not being able to place a modified Mason-Allen stitch with a suture anchor technique. We present a technique using the Arthrex Scorpion device (Arthrex, Naples, FL) to place a modified Mason-Allen stitch arthroscopically via a double-loaded FiberWire metal
