author keywords: Automated suturing; Knot tying; Fixation; Minimally invasive surgery
MeSH headings : Cardiac Surgical Procedures / instrumentation; Equipment Design; Humans; Laparoscopy / instrumentation; Materials Testing / methods; Models, Anatomic; Suture Techniques / instrumentation; Sutures; Tensile Strength; Time Factors
TL;DR: Experimental data reveal that the automated suturing device has great potential for advancing minimally invasive surgery: it significantly reduced knot-tying times while providing equivalent or greater holding strength than conventionally tied knots. (via Semantic Scholar)
