When a wound is tending to distort, and it is dif-ficult to distribute the tension evenly on both sides for suturing, it often helps to make the wound taut with a skin hook in each end so that a few key sutures can be placed accurately before inserting the intervening sutures. When distor-tion is to be expected, and especially in a curved incision, trouble will be saved by tattooing matching points with Bonney’s Blue (gentian violet, 1O g; brilliant green, 1O g; alcohol 95%, 95O ml; water to 2000 ml) on either side of the projected incision before any cut is made.
