Mechanical fabrication and evaluation of bioresorbable barbed sutures with different barb geometries


By: K. Nambi Gowri* & M. King*

author keywords: barbed suture; bioresorbable polymer; wound closure; fabrication technique; mechanical property; anchoring performance; barb geometry
TL;DR: It was concluded that by barbing sutures with different barb shapes and geometries, a range of barbed suture products could be fabricated, each meeting the closure requirements for different types of tissue and therefore being suitable for different surgical procedures.
