Surgical Suture Patent
 

Surgical suture

The present invention relates to a coating material for surgical sutures which comprises as essential ingredients a copolymer having repeating units of lactic acid and .epsilon.-caprolacton and calcium stearate; and a surgical suture comprising a lactic acid/.epsilon.-caprolacton copoymer in which a lactide/.epsilon.-caprolacton ratio is (70-85 mol %)/(30-15 mol %) and the number of .epsilon.-caprolacton repeating unit is 2.5 or greater on the average.

Packaging for surgical suture material

In a packaging (1) for surgical suture material, a thread duct (10) which runs in a wound manner is formed in a base (2), which thread duct opens at its first end (11) to a thread removal zone (3). The base (2) is provided with a cover. The thread removal zone (3) has a recess (24) in the base (2) adjacent to the first end (11) of the thread duct (10), adjacent to which recess a thread tray (26), which faces the first end (11) of the thread duct (10), is located.

Packaging for surgical suture

In a packaging (1) for surgical suture material (6), a thread duct which runs spiral-like is formed in a base (2) and opens at its first end to form a thread removal zone in the periphery area of the base (2). The base (2) is provided with a cover (4). An edge segment (3) of the base (2) can be folded down about a fold line provided in the region of the underside of the base (2) for access to the thread removal zone.

Self-drilling surgical suture anchor

A device and method for anchoring a surgical suture in solid tissue, such as bone, which is implantable without prior drilling of a hole. The device for anchoring a surgical suture to a solid tissue is attachable to an external rotational drive and includes a self-drilling body to which surgical suture is attachable, an assembly including at least one flexible locking element, attached to or integrally formed therewith, capable of assuming both an open and closed configurations. The device is configured so that the assembly including at least one flexible locking element in the closed configuration is releasably engageable by the external rotational drive. The method for anchoring a surgical suture to a solid tissue includes the step of causing a self-drilling body to penetrate a soft tissue, the step of aligning the self-drilling body with an anchor point on a bone, the step of activating an external rotational drive, thereby causing the self-drilling body to rotate and penetrate the anchor point in the bone, and the step of actuating a mechanism for anchoring the self-drilling body in the bone at the anchor point.
