Kabuto had a sealing dagger in his hand at the start of the fight. That'd do quite a lot to stop Itachi from regenerating.
Honestly though? I don't believe Kabuto successfully pulled off anything just then. Did no one else find it odd that Itachi says he's activating the jutsu then just drops Susanoo?
Also, if Kabuto really killed Itachi just then? I can't picture anyway that Sasuke controls his murderous impulses. The war means nothing to him.
