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