Gambee suture pattern

Gambee suture pattern

a rapidly inserted, interrupted suture used to close a bowel anastomosis with one layer of stitches. The suture goes from serous to mucosal surface, back into the mucosa on the same side of the incision, out into the middle of the cut surface to be approximated, across the incision into the wound edge opposite, down into gut lumen, back through the mucosa and through the wall to the serous surface and a tie with the tail of the suture across the incision.
