In all the patients who underwent midline laparotomy, closure was done by a continuous, en masse closure technique using a monofilament, slowly-absorbable suture like polydioxanone (PDS) or polyglyconate (Maxon) while in patients with transverse, oblique or paramedian incisions, layered closure was done using polydioxanone or polyglyconate.
