Title

Suction Cannula Assisted Placement of Traction Sutures.

Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Many reconstructive techniques require placement of autogenous tissues or temporary implants into large subcutaneous cavities. This procedure may be facilitated by using traction sutures for their insertion. The blunt suction lipectomy cannula in turn can simplify this tedious step by providing a means to pass these sutures over long distances. The technique for this simple and time-saving procedure is described.
