Abstract

Clinical bottom line

Incidence of complications using either a simple continuous or a simple interrupted suture pattern in the linea alba is low if appropriate suture material is chosen and appropriate surgical technique is used.  More, well-planned studies with higher power are required before an evidence-based recommendation for one pattern over the other can be made.
