TOGNINI, João Ricardo F. e GOLDENBERG, Saul. Síntese da parede abdominal: sutura contínua ou com pontos separados? Revisão da literatura. Acta Cir. Bras. [online]. 1998, vol.13, n.2 ISSN 1678-2674. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-86501998000200009.
Nowadays , is belivied that the single-layer mass closure is better than the individual layer sutures, with less risk of complications. Although there is alot of materials to be used, the types preferable to be best used are the monofilament inabsorbable and the monofilament long-term absorbable suture. There still are doubts about abdominal closure using continuous or interrupted sutures. Different publications, with different methods and ways of valuation, conclude advantages for one or other technique, or conclude similar results. About these doubts, the authors relate the continuous and interrupted sutures on the abdominal wall closure, emphasizing the technical aspects.
