Hemostatic Suture Technique

As a continuation of the previous articles on suture techniques I am introducing another type of frequently used suture technique – hemostatic techniques. The technique is deemed to stop haemorrhage and reduce threats for patients.


  1. Pass the suture under the skin and across the vessel
  2. Turn 90 degrees and pass the suture perpendicular to the first suture (under the first suture)
  3. Tie a simple instrument knot to close the vessel
  4. Double knots are tied to secure that the vessel will not haemorrhage again
