So far as I have been able to learn, no description of a stitch I am using at the Indianapolis City Hospital for closing skin wounds has yet been published. It consists of a series of mattress-on-edge stitches, as in the accompanying illustration, made continuous by looping the suture as in a buttonhole stitch instead of tying as in the interrupted mattress-on-edge.
