Push a button and tie a knot.
The Suture Assistant simplifies laparoscopic suturing by eliminating a time-consuming step: knot tying. DURAKNOT®, our patented pretied-Knot Delivery System, reliably deploys an intracorporeal knot.
The Suture Assistant is a sterile single-patient-use instrument designed to secure suture knots intracorporeally. This instrument has two levers: the first enables you to load the instrument and open the grasper, and the second contains a ratchet mechanism for controlled deployment of knots. Designed for use with the appropriate ENDOPATH® Trocars. (Trocar size depends on needle that is used).
Reload Unit is a sterile single-patient device consisting of a knot/grasper cartridge comprised of approximately 6 inch (15cm) suture with pre-tied knot and an attached needle.
Any minimally invasive procedure where soft tissue is being approximated with interrupted suture technique.
