A new design of a Nitinol ring-like wire for suturing in deep surgical field.

Abstract

The present work proposes a new suturing procedure based on self-accommodating suture points. Each suture point is made of a commercial NiTi wire hot-shaped in a single loop ring; a standard suture needle is then fixed at one end of the NiTi suture. According to this simple geometry, several NiTi suture stitches have been prepared and tested by tensile test… (More)
