Single layer interrupted suture closure of uterine wound incisions represent a viable choice over conventional closure since the operation not only has benefits in case of performance but also possesses a rational basis for the avoidance of ischemia of the wound, infection and hematoma formation. There is a distinct advantage of single interrupted suture closure over conventional closure because there is a substantially higher number of normal hysterograms in this group showing good integrity of the scar in the uterus.
