A simple and safe anastomosis in pancreaticogastrostomy using mattress sutures
Anterior surface scoring was performed with multiple needle forceps following an anterior incision and new antihelical fold was created with 4/0 prolene mattress sutures
that were placed in previously marked parallel lines.
The skin and the subcutaneous fat was closed by interrupted polyamide mattress sutures
over two suction drains.
Horizontal mattress sutures
are placed in an aorta to ventricle orientation circumferentially through the aortic valve annulus.
The skin was undermined from the nasolabial incisions and the skin flap was advanced and closed without tension, with 5-0 prolene vertical mattress sutures
Mustarde performed multiple permanent horizontal mattress sutures
to fix the new antihelical fold.
9) After Becker introduced the concept of antihelical tubing using cartilage incisions and suture techniques, in 1963, Mustarde described creating the antihelical fold using permanent mattress sutures
Four vertical mattress sutures
were placed at the peripheral rim and tied to the capsule.
The skin flaps were sutured using vertical mattress sutures
with nylon no.
Like tandem-suture-lines technique, with interrupted mattress sutures
to anchor the prosthesis to the aorto-ventricular junction and a running suture between the prosthesis and the remnants of the supra-annular aortic wall (Copeland technique).
Two mattress sutures
were placed medially to restore the footprint of the tendon and then over-sewn laterally with the remaining limbs of the suture.
For deep lacerations with potential space remaining, use vertical mattress sutures
to approximate the wound edges.
