figure 28-3 Order of suture placement for intrathoracic tracheal anastomosis. The diagram represents the proximal end of the divided trachea. The distal end is a mirror image. The heavy lines indicate lateral traction sutures, with the right side of trachea upper and the left side lower (located deepest in the wound). Anterolateral sutures are placed first, beginning anterior to the left-sided traction suture and progressing as shown. After all these sutures have been placed up to the right-sided traction sutures, the posterior sutures are placed similarly, from the deepest to the most superficial.
