SIMPLE RUNNING SUTURE
The simple running suture is an uninterrupted series of simple interrupted sutures. It is started by placing a simple interrupted stitch, which is tied, but not cut. A series of simple sutures are placed in succession without tying or cutting after each pass. Sutures should be evenly spaced, and tension should be evenly distributed along the suture line. The line of stitches is completed by tying a knot after the last pass at the end of the suture line.
