Closure of the Navel in Three Layers

■ In order to avoid later disturbances to healing and necrosis, the navel must be fixed in place in three layers. At the base, this is with deep fixation with absorbable suture material of strength 3.0. To allow further perfusion and stabilization of the navel using the peri-umbilical adipose tissue, 5.0 Monocryl interrupted sutures are then inserted. The skin is adapted with continuous intracutaneous suturing with 4.0 Monocryl. This ensures that the navel is well stabilized, has contact with the dermo-fat flap on all sides and that no serous swellings can form in spaces.
