There are many suturing techniques available for the closure of skin incisions. The authors present a continuous suturing technique which is simple and quick to perform, eliminates the need for an assistant to follow, is easy to remove, and produces an everted wound margin with evenly distributed tension. The authors believe this technique produces a cosmetically superior scar, which is beneficial to the patient and to the surgeon.
