Suture insertion

Insert a nr. 5 Ethibond non-absorbable stitch in a figure-of-eight fashion.

Push the stitch a close as possible to the angle between the bone and the protruding K-wire tips.

The stitch should be as close as possible to the bone throughout its whole course both superiorly and inferiorly.
