Wound closure:

Interrupted sutures vicryl 0 are used to reapproximate the rectus muscle. Fascial closure is done with the short stitch technique: continuous running suture size 0 or 2-0, tissue bites of 5 mm and intersuture spacing of 4--5 mm are applied exclusively to the fascia (anterior lamina of the rectus sheat).
