SETONS. A seton is put in by passing an instrument, called a seton needle, through the skin, armed with lamp-cotton, or tape, or threads. The object is to promote a discharge of matter from any particular place, and keep up an irritation there. A seton is easier done, and altogether a more useful operation, than the rowel. The lamp-cotton, or tape is to be drawn a little out every day so as to let the new part of it be in contact with the wound. See Row
