156 Possible Causes for Overlapping Sutures

  • Cerebellotrigeminal Dermal Dysplasia

    However, three-dimensional CT re-formation of the trisomic infant showed opacification of the coronal suture in the areas of greatest overlap, whereas histology revealed a[] […] release kinetics and bioactivity of a simplified cytokine/collagen gel system designed to achieve extended, local delivery of bioactive cytokines at sites of premature cranial suture[]

  • Baclofen

    The first advantage is avoiding the direct alignment of overlapped sutures, which creates a locus minoris resistentiae that can weaken and break under the push of the pump[]

  • Laryngo-Tracheo-Esophageal Cleft

    A tracheoesophageal fistula can occur despite meticulous attempts to avoid overlapping suture lines, most likely because of the tracheostomy tube.[]

  • Epigastric Hernia

    If the defect is small then an overlapping sutured repair can be effected but if the defect is any greater than 1cm, it is best repaired using a tension free mesh technique[]

  • Ureterovaginal Fistula

    Approximate the vaginal incision using 2-0 absorbable sutures, without causing an overlapping suture line. Place Betadine -soaked packing in the vagina.[] Whenever overlapping suture lines occur (the vaginal cuff and the cystotomy repair), the risk of VVF formation will increase.[] The fistulous tract, pubocervical fascia, and vaginal mucosa are closed in layers, without overlapping suture lines.[]

  • Urethrorectal Fistula

    suture lines.[] ., wide mobilization of the bladder neck to allow for tension-free closure, multilayer closure of the outlet without overlapping suture lines thereby reducing the opportunity[] […] exposure, identification and excision of the fistulous tract, closure of the fistulous opening and urethral repair with meticulous debridement of the urethral edges using non-overlapping[]

  • Macrocephaly

    Excessive CSF drainage can result in significant suture overlap that leads to difficulties in patient positioning, secondary synostosis, and long-term aesthetic complications[]

  • Vesicovaginal Fistula

    The sutures should be applied at least 3 to 5 mm from the prior suture line, free of tension, and at a right angle from the first suture line to minimize overlapping of the[] The vaginal opening was closed with care, maintaining an overlapping suture lines using running stitches in a horizontal fashion with absorbable braided suture.[] This modification enables the surgeon to advance one flap over the fistula repair and prevent overlapping suture lines.[]

  • Lissencephaly 4 with Microcephaly

    sutures, prominent occipital bone, scalp rugae) Other major brain abnormalities including intraventricular hemorrhage in utero (excluding postnatal intraventricular hemorrhage[] Porencephaly Hydranencephaly Ventriculomegaly/hydrocephaly (excluding “mild” ventriculomegaly without other brain abnormalities) Fetal brain disruption sequence (collapsed skull, overlapping[]

  • Entropion

    […] without external sutures.[] […] describe the use of a lid crease incision for upper eyelid margin rotation in cicatricial entropion combining internal traction on the anterior lamella, tarsotomy, and tarsal overlap[]
