STEP 1

Anchor the Quill Device

With the Quill device needle, take initial bite of the tissue. Then, pass the needle through the variable loop. Cinch down to engage the barbs at the fixation point.

STEP 2

Run the Stitch

Continue approximating the tissue in a running fashion until the opposite end of the wound is reached. The barbs retract for delivery and then engage for fixation.

STEP 3

Lock the Stitch

Continue to the end, then employ a back stitch to lock the suture in place and cut the remaining Quill suture flush with the tissue. When approximating the subcuticular layer, exit laterally through the skin, retract on the suture and cut flush with the skin.
