Connell suture pattern

Connell suture pattern

a technique for suture of the gut wall which resembles the cushing suture pattern except that the suture goes through all layers of the gut wall. The suture goes through the wall from the serosa to the mucosa, then back from the mucosa to the serosa on the same side. The stitch then crosses the incision to the serosa on the other side and then repeats.
