Example text

The choice between straight- and curve-tipped hemostats is a matter of personal preference, as either may be applied with equal accuracy. Curve-tipped hemostats make it somewhat easier to bring a ligature around the back and tip of the clamp for tying. The manner in which the curved hemostat is applied differs depending on whether the vessel is to be cauterized or tied. The hemostat should be applied points down and then lifted clear of all adjacent tissue to cauterize the vessel. It should be applied points up if the vessel is to be tied.

Depending on the thickness of the skin and the underlying structures, staples may be placed 5–10 mm apart (Fig. 9). Align the skin edges to produce good apposition with slight eversion. When working with a less-skilled assistant, it is preferable for the surgeon to align the edges and allow the assistant to place the staples. Simple Interrupted Fascial Stitch The McBurney and other special incisions may be closed by simple interrupted fascial sutures. These sutures are placed so they include 8–10 mm of tissue with each bite, as shown in Fig.

Occasionally, the peritoneum and ligaments in the paracolic gutters are somewhat vascular secondary to inflammation. Electrocautery can be used here to divide these normally “avascular” structures. In many areas, such as the neck, breast, and abdominal wall, it is feasible to cut with electrocautery, now set for “cutting,” without causing excessive bleeding. To divide a small blood vessel, change the switch from “cutting” to “coagulation” and occlude the isolated blood vessel by electrocautery.
