The first throw of a knot is then formed and this loop is settled deep to the points of the artery forceps a to encircle half of the tissue. In general, sutures are designed to hold healthy tissue in apposition to allow healing and their support is required until the tensile strength in the wound or anastomosis is adequate to prevent disruption.

Smaller laparoscopes and those with a more angled view in general provide less light and inferior views. New contributing authors in the subspecialties of general surgery bring their own particular expertise to the book. A short hospital stay is anticipated and a faster recovery with either no external wound or only small port site wounds.Conversely, sutures of similar materials may exhibit different behaviour, reflecting the manner in which they have been manufactured. Bioabsorbable sutures lose strength at different rates and are all associated with a tissue reaction as this occurs. The publishers wish to make clear that any views or opinions expressed in this book by individual editors, authors or contributors are personal to them and do not necessarily reflect the views/opinions of the publishers.

The linear and circular stapling devices used in abdominal surgery are described in more detail in Chapter 14 (p. If a cold scope is introduced into the cavity, condensation will form on the lens thus obscuring the view.The techniques used to achieve these tasks, however, differ and are described below for laparoscopic surgery. Embolisation may also have a major role in the control of haemorrhage from a fractured pelvis or a traumatised liver. Suture material, whether monofilament or braided, may be bioabsorbable or remain in the tissue unless removed. Summary: First published in 1954, Farquharson's Textbook of Operative General Surgery has become firmly established as a classic textbook for trainee surgeons throughout the world.

Non-absorbable sutures are needed for vascular anastomoses but are unsuitable in the biliary or urinary tract, where they have been shown to cause stone formation. a) The suture is only pulled through sufficiently to allow it to be grasped by the second needle holder close to the needle and pulled to form a loop. In addition, the book describes procedures for the general surgeon in a remote hospital, who may have to operate outside his or her specialty and offer a limited service in orthopaedics, neurosurgery, urology or obstetrics. The combination of this loop and the curve of the needle makes it easy to wrap two turns of the suture around the right hand needle holder by rotating it in an arc (Figure 1.Every time a vessel is ligated, two ‘foreign bodies’ are introduced – the ligature itself and 01-Farquharson-cpp 8/4/05 9:51 AM Page 6 the strangulated tissue beyond it.
