[Continuous and interrupted intestinal sutures. Experimental and clinical study (author's transl)].

[Article in French]


The authors report a clinical study of 101 cases of continuous digestive suture and an experiment comparing intestinal healing after continuous and interrupted sutures. A certain discrepancy exists between the excellent clinical results and the pathological and microscopic findings with continuous sutures, and in particular the presence of pseudo-diverticular pouches in 20% of cases developing at the expense of a mucosal evagination within the suture. If carefully performed, continuous suture seems excellent, preventing by its watertightness, the onset of early fistula.
