Purpose: The purpose of the study is to compare the efficiency as well as the rate and type of suture-related complications between 10-0 monofilament nylon (Aurolab Nylon Sutures, double arm, Aurolab) and 10-0 polyglactin 910 sutures (Vicryl, single arm, Aurolab) for pediatric cataract surgery. Methods: It is a prospective, comparative study performed in children who underwent surgery for congenital or developmental cataract from March 2013 to February 2016. Patients underwent suturing with either nylon or Vicryl in unilateral cases, but in most bilateral surgeries, one eye received Vicryl sutures while the other eye received nylon...

PURPOSE: The addition of a braided bio-absorbable vicryl coating to the surface of radioactive seeds used for low dose rate (LDR) prostate brachytherapy is intended to reduce the incidence of seed movement and migration. Here, we present a single-institution study of the frequency and severity of seed slippage (initial seed movement) of coated seeds in comparison with uncoated seeds. METHODS: Forty-seven patients received permanent prostate brachytherapy, with either coated (n = 26) or uncoated (n = 21) seeds...

The aim of the study was to compare postoperative vaginal cuff complications due to the use of barbed sutures (V-Loc™ 180 unidirectional suture; Covidien, Mansfield, MA) and standard braided sutures (Vicryl® ; Ethicon Inc., Somerville, MA) during vaginal cuff closure of patients undergoing a total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) due to benign diseases. Eighty-nine patients were in the standard suture group and 208 patients were included in the barbed suture group. Vaginal cuff dehiscence was identified in only three (3...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the barbed polyglyconate suture (BPS) with two commonly used conventional sutures, this prospective randomized trial was designed. The sutures applied in the urinary collecting system, in terms of long-term histopathological and macroscopic suture material features. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eight female and 6 male New Zeeland rabbits were included in the study. Each animal served as its own control and was subjected to cystotomy. Watertight running cystorrhaphies were performed utilizing three different sutures in a randomized fashion, namely MonocrylTM , VicrylTM , and V-LocTM 90...

The frequency of accidents due to dog bite in children is high, and in the most cases, the child already knows the aggressor dog. Patient, 3 years, female, melanoderm, victim of pet dog attack on the right side of the face region. After the physical examination, conscious sedation was performed with the supplementation of oxygen by pediatrics and the suture by oral and maxillofacial surgeon, under local anesthesia with adrenergic vasoconstrictor, with internal points in the muscles using vicryl 4-0 and in the skin with 5-0 nylon; the lesser number of stitches were performed in the lower region of the wound, allowing spontaneous drainage spaces...

BACKGROUND: In 2006, Villa et al. published a review article concerning the use of thread-lift sutures and concluded that the technique was still in its infancy but had great potential to become a useful and effective procedure for nonsurgical lifting of sagged facial tissues. As 11 years have passed, the authors now performed again a systematic review to determine the real scientific current state of the art on the use of thread-lift sutures. METHODS: A systematic review was performed according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines using the PubMed database and using the Medical Subject Headings search term "Rhytidoplasty...

A 40-year-old man was referred to our urology clinic due to vague abdominal pain and hematuria. Computed tomography (CT) without contrast material visualized an ectopic kidney in the left iliac fossa with a complete staghorn stone. Under general anesthesia, operation was done in supine position with a gentle lateral elevation on the right side. The surgeon stands on the right side of the patient. First, a 12 mm port was inserted at the umbilicus using the Hasson technique. After creation of pneumoperitoneum, operation was done by three 5 mm trocars were arranges as paraumbilical, the point between umbilicus and inguinal canal at left and right side...

Avoidance of hypotony in the early post-operative phase following glaucoma drainage device surgery is paramount, if serious complications are to be avoided. Current strategies of preventing early hypotony are either a valve mechanism, as those found in Ahmed Glaucoma Valve or flow restrictor as used in Baerveldt or Molteno implants. The Ahmed glaucoma valve has a pre-tensioned valve which opens and closes at the pre-determined level of intra-ocular pressure. Although the opening and closing pressure can be slightly inconsistent, coinciding with the change of material used in the plate construction, the reliability appears to have improved in recent years...

BACKGROUND: Surgical sutures can promote migration of bacteria and thus start infections. Antiseptic coating of sutures may inhibit proliferation of adhered bacteria and avoid such complications. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the inhibition of viable adhering bacteria on novel antimicrobially coated surgical sutures using chlorhexidine or octenidine, a critical factor for proliferation at the onset of local infections. The medical need, a rapid eradication of bacteria in wounds, can be fulfilled by a high antimicrobial efficacy during the first days after wound closure...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a frequent complication in dirty surgery, reaching rates of up to 40%. The incidence of SSI might be influenced by the suture used for closure of the abdominal fascia. Sutures coated with antibacterial substances may reduce the bacterial load in the incision. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of patients with intra-operative diagnosis of fecal peritonitis undergoing a laparotomy in three Spanish hospitals was performed...

To avoid infections and wound healing disorders, Triclosan coated sutures have been invented. Little is known of these sutures regarding their tensile properties. Three different Triclosan coated sutures (Vicryl 1 plus, PDS 0 plus, Monocryl 3-0 plus) were tested at several time points over 42 days regarding load to failure, strain, and stiffness compared to their non-coated versions (Vicryl 1, PDS 0, Monocryl 3-0). Four different measurement points were made. Suture loops were fixed in a material testing machine over two metal bars which were moved apart creating a stress to the fiber...

Background: The traditional technique for levator muscle resection includes a time-consuming dissection procedure that causes tissue trauma and swelling. The Putterman ptosis clamp has been popularly used in recent years for conjunctival müllerectomy. In this paper, we describe a modified surgical technique for ptosis treatment using the Putterman ptosis clamp. The modified technique improves the surgical results of levator muscle resection. Objectives: We performed a retrospective case-series study to determine the outcomes and complications associated with the use of the Putterman ptosis clamp in levator muscle resection...

INTRODUCTION: Dismembered pyeloplasty remains the gold standard for the treatment of pelviureteric junction obstruction (PUJO). Robotic approach to this procedure has proven its efficacy and is gaining popularity. The introduction of barbed sutures such as "V-Loc™" (Covidien) has provided an addition to the sutures available for pyeloplasty. This work provides our experience with the V-Loc suture for closure of pelvis in children for robotic pyeloplasty (RP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A review of 10 pediatric RP (da Vinci Robotic System) during which the V-Loc suture was used was performed...

Repair of long ureteral defects often requires long graft tissues and extensive surgery. This is associated with complications, including a lack of suitable tissue and graft site morbidity. Tissue engineering may provide an attractive alternative to the autologous graft tissues. In this study, ureteral repair using (preimplanted) tubular collagen-Vicryl templates was evaluated in a new goat model. Tubular templates were prepared from tubularized Vicryl meshes and 0.7% type-I collagen (length = 6 cm, inner diameter = 6 mm, wall thickness = 3 mm)...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this randomized control trial was to compare the operative data and the early postoperative outcomes of cesarean sections in which the uterine incision was closed with a barbed suture (STRATAFIX™ Spiral PDO Knotless Tissue Control Device, SXPD2B405, Ethicon Inc.) with those of cesarean sections in which the uterine incision was closed with a conventional smooth suture (VICRYL™ ; Ethicon Inc.). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred pregnant patients were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to the Stratafix group or the Vicryl group...
