This invention relates to suture supporting Fig. 7 is a blank from which the modified and attaching plates adapted for use in the form of deviceshown/in Fig. 6 is it'ormed. practice of surgery, in the closing of wounds In the drawings a device embodying the or incisions. v p lnvention is shown in position on the skin 10 It is general practice to pass a suture of a patient, and the fatty and muscular 55 through the skin ad acent an incision, downl yers beneath the skin are indicated at 11 wardly through the fatty and muscular layand 12.

In using my invention, the suture 25 is applied inthe usual manner so that the ends toward each other. In this position no part of the base or of the upwardly extending wall 16 is in contact with the incision or with the points where the sutures emerge, from the skin. The free edge of the plate 18 is-spaced from the wound and is substantially directly above a line extending across the incision and through the points where the sutures emerge.

The surgeon preferably grasps the device and holds it in position by an instrument which engages the plate 18 adjacent the aperture 21. The suture ends 25" are inserted through slits 19 at opposite sides of the center of the edge of the plate 18 and are then passed under the tongues 20 on topof the plate 18 as best shown in Figs. 2 and 4. In this manner the sutures are supported out of contact with the wound and are adjustably and'removably held in desired position and may be readily loosened and reattached.

The device may be made in various sizes, it being intended that the base arms be spaced apart sufficiently to accommodate the sutures inwardly of said arms, and the distance be tween the 'margins 22 and 28 being substantially equal to the distance between adjacent sutures. I

In Figs. 6 and 7 I have illustrated a modilied form of the invention in which the parts are identical with those heretofore described, excepting that the free edge of the plate 18, near its ends,

is provided with legs 26 to aid in supporting the attaching plate 18 and to render the device as a whole, firm and reliable. The legs 26 extend downwardly and at their lower ends are provided with feet 27 which rest on the skin 10.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that the parts adjacent the incision are not in direct contact with the suture supporting and attaching plate and that the wound may be kept perfectly clean and infections avoided; also that while the suture ends are drawn toward each other sufliciently to close the wound, they are not knotted together and are attached to the plate 18 in such manner that they may be easilyloosened in the event swelling occurs, and thereby the patient is rendered comfortable.

Changes may be made in details of con struction without departing from the scope scribed, except as set forth in the appended claims. 7

I claim 1. A suture supportingand attaching device comprising a base consisting of two oppositely facing substantially L-shaped members, a substantially upright wall connecting said L-shapd members together in spaced apart relation, and a suture attaching- .plate carried by said wall in a plane above the base members.

2. A suture supporting and attaching device comprising a base and a suture attach- I ing plate mounted on'the base, said plate being provided on one margin with slits and on its top with tongues adapted to receive and frictionally hold said suture ends. v

3.- A'suture supporting and attaching de vice comprising spaced apart base members and a suture attaching plate mounted on said base members and extending across the space between said members, said plate being provided on one margin with slits and on its top with tongues adapted to receive and frictionally hold said suture ends.

i. A suture supporting and attaching device comprising a base consisting of two oppositely facing substantially bers, a substantially upright wall connecting said L-shaped members together in spaced apart relation, and a suture attaching plate carried by said wall in a' plane above the base members, said plate being provided on one margin with slits and onits top with tongues adapted to receive and frictionally hold said suture ends.

5. A suture supporting and attaching device comprising a base and a suture attaching plate mounted on the base, said base being provided on its under surface with ridges which extend transversely of the device and project downwardly and inwardly toward the center of the device.

I f I 7 8. A suture supporting and attaching plate comprising base members extending substantially parallel to each other and spaced apart a distance sufiicient to rest on the skin at each side of an incision and outwardly of the points where the suture emerges from the skin, and a suture supporting plate mounted on said base members in a plane above the same and adapted to extend from one base member to the other across the incision with out contacting with the skin, said plate being provided with means for detachably engaging the suture ends.

9. A suture supportingand attaching plate comprising base members extending substantially parallel to each other and spaced apart a distance sufiicient to rest on the skin at each side of an incision and outwardly of the points where the suture emerges from the skin, and a suture supporting plate mounted on said base members in a plane above the same and adapted to extend from one base member to the other across the incision without contacting with the skin, said plate being provided with means for detachably engaging the suture ends, said means consisting of a plurality of slits extending diagonally inwardly from one margin of the plate.

10. A suture supporting and attaching plate comprising base members extending substantially parallel to each other and spaced apart a distance sufiicient to rest on the skin at each side of an incision and outwardly of the points where the suture emerges from the skin, and a suture supporting plate mounted on said base members in a plane above the same and adapted to extend from one base member to the other across the incision without contacting with the skin, said plate being provided with means for detachably engaging the suture ends, the base members being provided on their lower surfaces with ridges projecting diagonally toward the incision when the device is in use.

11. A suture supporting and attachlng plate comprising base members spaced apart a distance sufficient to rest on the skin at each side of an incision and outwardly of the points where the suture emerges from the skin, and a suture supporting plate mounted on said base members in a plane above the same and adapted to extend from one base member to the other across the incision with out contacting with the skin, said plate being provided with means for detachably engaging the suture ends.

12. A suture supporting and attaching plate comprising base members spaced apart a distance sufiicient to rest on the skin at each side of an incision and outwardly of the points where the suture emerges from the skin, and a suture supporting plate mounted on said base members in a plane above the same and adapted to extend from one base member to the other across the incision without contacting with the skin, said plate being provided with means for detachably engaging the suture ends, said means consisting of a plurality of slits extending inwardly from one margin of the plate.

13. A suture sup-porting and attaching plate comprising base members spaced apart a distance suflicient to rest on the skin at each side of an incision and outwardly of the points where the suture emerges from the skin, and a suture supporting plate mounted on said base members in a plane above the same and adapted to extend from one base member to the other across the incision without contacting with the skin, said plate being provided with means for detachably engaging the suture ends, the base members being provided on their lower surfaces with ridges projecting diagonally toward the incision when the device is in use.

14:. A suture supporting and attaching plate comprising spaced apart base members adapted to rest on the skin of a patient at opposite sides of an incision, a raised plate mounted on said base members extending from one to the other, and means on said plate for holding the suture ends without the necessity of tying said ends together and for permitting detachment of said sutures without cutting the same.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention, I afiix my signature, this 20th day of April, 1931.
