OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of instrumentation of suture material on knot security and tensile strength. STUDY DESIGN In all, 5 types of suture material were used; 10 knots were tied without any instrumentation and 10 knots were tied with a hemostat holding tension on the first throw while the second throw was made for each suture type. Each group was tested to failure with the maximum load and mode of failure recorded. The maximum load between groups of each suture type was compared… CONTINUE READING
