Suspension of the kidney: introduction of the first suture. Note triangular suture in kidney on its posterior surface. This suture is placed with a delicate needle, the two free ends then carried with a coarse needle, as shown in figure, above the twelfth rib. This affords a high position to the suspended kidney.
