Abstract (English)  :

Dear Sir,

How disappointing to read the report by Adoni & Anteby [Br J Obstet Gynacol(1991)98, 476–478] that compared a tissue adhesive applied to the skin with skin stitches of 00-chromic catgut. It is hardly ever necessary to place stitches through the skin when repairing an episiotomy. A subcuticular closure obviates the placement of any stitches in the skin. I hope there will be a further report by these authors that compares results of episiotomy repair achieved by a tissue adhesive with that achieved by subcuticular closure. Such a future study should use a finer suture than 00 and one that has less potential than catgut for tissue reaction. Pain from an episiotomy has an important deep component. I look forward to a future report that describes an adhesive, or some other technological wonder, to replace sutures for the closure of the deep portions of the episiotomy.
