Abstract

The author describes a simple technique for anchoring various tubes used in the treatment of trauma patients (gastrostomy tubes, jejunostomy tubes, intercostal drains, etc.) to the skin with sutures. In this technique the tube is stretched while the suture is tied around it, thus producing a tight fit.
