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...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to compare the biomechanical strength and permeability of barbed vs traditional suture for closure of the porcine knee joint. METHODS: This study used Duroc pig knee joints. For each specimen, a 5-cm medial parapatellar arthrotomy was performed with the knee at 30° of flexion. We closed the arthrotomy wound using barbed suture (size 1/0 V-Loc 180) or traditional suture (size 1/0 PDS II). Specimens were divided into a PDS II (n = 9) and a V-Loc group (n = 9) for biomechanical testing, and a PDS II (n = 9) and a V-Loc group (n = 9) for permeability testing...

Supported by recent literature on the signs of aging of the middle and lower face, our clinical research has documented a loss of volume of the deep structural components of the central face and a progressive descent of the nasolabial fat and the jowl fat, leading to facial fragmentation. The signs that appear around the age of 45 to 50 years are well targeted by the mini-invasive technique described here. We focused on refitting the jowl fat and the nasolabial fat associated with cutaneous tightening. The use of absorbable barbed sutures (Quill) led to significant improvements, enabling the fitting of fat on fat...

The objective of our work is to demonstrate in a large cohort of patients with cricotracheal stenosis that resection of long airway segments could be performed with no increased risk of postoperative complications. A consecutive series of patients getting cervical segmental cricotracheal resection (CTR) were reviewed. The typical segmental tracheal resection technique has been modified to accommodate long segment removal. Modifications include using trachea to enable the reconstruction of the larynx itself as well as the placement of a "laryngosternopexy" stitch between the thyroid lamina and the sternoclavicular ligament designed to take all of the tension off the anastomosis and to prevent inadvertent head extension...

INTRODUCTION: Single-port total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) has not been widely used because of its technical difficulty and steep learning curve, especially the laparoscopic suturing of the vaginal stump. Barbed suturing is a new technology that has the potential to greatly facilitate laparoscopic suturing. AIM: To compare surgical outcomes and vaginal vault healing between barbed sutures and traditional sutures in the repair of the vaginal vault during single-port TLH...

Background: Lockwood described the importance of Colles' fascia anchoring in medial thighplasty to reduce morbidity associated with the procedure. However, this maneuver may still have complications including traumatic dissection, prolonged edema, and potential wound healing ramifications form increased tension. Alternatively, we suggest orienting tension in medial thighplasty for massive weight loss (MWL) patients in the horizontal vector rather than a vertical direction, negating the need for Colles' fascia anchoring...

Laparoscopic excision of a scar pregnancy and isthmocele repair with barbed suture Design Step by step explanation of the laparoscopic excision technique of a scar pregnancy and isthmocele repair Setting Cesarean scar pregnancy occurs as a result of attachment of the products of conception to the uterine scar. In the present case, a 34 year old G4 P1 patient with a history of one miscarriage and one ectopic pregnancy was diagnosed with type 2 cesarean scar pregnancy at 7 weeks of gestation. A Dilation & Curretage was performed at the 8th week of gestation to terminate the pregnancy...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We aimed to assess the pull-out strength of barbed and nonbarbed sutures used in sacrocolpopexy mesh fixation. We hypothesized there are no differences in the force needed to dislodge mesh from tissue using barbed and nonbarbed sutures of similar size. METHODS: Using the rectus fascia of three unembalmed cadavers, a 6 × 3 cm strip of polypropylene mesh was anchored to the fascia with sutures. The barbed sutures investigated were 2-0 V-Loc 180 (nine trials) and 3-0 bidirectional Quill™ SRS PDO (five trials)...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Traditional scalp closure technique following elective craniotomy involves placement of staples or a continuous running suture. Despite low complication rates, these techniques are often considered to be disfiguring by patients, contribute to the psychosocial trauma of brain surgery, and are associated with discomfort during postoperative staple or suture removal. Some authors have described scalp closure using intradermal absorbable suture, but this technique likely does not reach the tensile strength of closure using traditional methods, and requires knots at the apices of the incision, which can act as a nidus for infection...

Traditional rejuvenation techniques include chemical peels, rhytidectomy of the skin, laser resurfacing, injection of dermal fillers and neurotoxins, and invasive surgical procedures. Patients with brow ptosis, jowl formation, and deepening nasolabial folds currently seek antiaging procedures with no incisions and minimal downtime such as thread-lifting with barbed sutures. The present report describes a case in which polydioxanone threads were used to lift the lower third of a patient's face. Fillers were used to supplement the results achieved by the thread lift because often, when tissue has been lifted, volume deficits are revealed, which can be corrected with dermal fillers...

BACKGROUND: Studies have suggested that barbed sutures for wound closure in TKAs are an acceptable alternative to standard methods. However others have observed a higher risk of wound-related complications with barbed sutures. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Do 90-day TKA reoperation rates differ between patients undergoing a barbed suture arthrotomy closure compared with a traditional interrupted closure? (2) Do the 90-day reoperation rates of wound-related, deep infection, and arthrotomy failure complications differ between barbed suture and traditional closures? METHODS: A retrospective analysis of a longitudinally maintained institutional primary TKA database was conducted on all TKAs performed between April 2011 and September 2015...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic running enterotomy closure for linear stapled Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) may be enhanced by using unidirectional barbed sutures (Stratafix™ 2/0, Ethicon) as it eliminates the need for knot tying and assistance from a third hand. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this paper is to present our technique using unidirectional barbed sutures (Stratafix™ 2/0, Ethicon). METHODS: After stapling the gastrojejunostomy, we start the closure of the residual enterotomy unidirectional from left to right (single, full-thickness layer) which is cut without a knot...

BACKGROUND: Closing the remaining opening in a linear stapled anastomosis, for example in laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), can be challenging. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate if the novel unidirectional barbed suture (BS) is of value in LRYGB compared with polyfilament (PS) suture. We have compared operative time, early complications, and length of stay, as well as anastomotic strictures and small bowel obstruction during the first year. SETTING: Retrospective study from the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry (SOReg)...
