PETROIANU, Andy. Technical options for suturing large wounds of the corporeal wall. Rev. Col. Bras. Cir. [online]. 2009, vol.36, n.4, pp. 353-355. ISSN 0100-6991. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-69912009000400015.
Large wounds of the corporeal wall due to extensive traumas, tumor excisions or prolonged laparostomies are surgical challenges with difficult solutions. We show on this paper that wedge approximations of large wounds using elastic rubber band kept under moderate tension is a simple alternative, with great efficacious and low cost, that can be used in many surgical circumstances.
