  Aspects of Asphyxial Deaths
As it was stated earlier ligature strangulation and hanging resembles except for the fact that in hanging the constriction force being the weight of the body.
In ligature strangulations the ligature mark normally proceeds at or below the height of the larynx, where as in hanging cases the ligature mark would be observed above the larynx.
However this distinction is not always reliable, as if the hanging ligature has a slip knot, the rope will tighten on the neck and fail to leave a missing section in the mark, being present through 360 degrees round the circumference of the neck, as often seen in strangulation.

 Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The book was first published in 1628, and had an immediate and far-reaching influence on Harvey's contemporaries; Thomas Hobbes said that Harvey was the only modern author whose doctrines were taught in his lifetime.
In the De motu cordis, Harvey investigated the effect of ligatures on blood flow.
The book also argued that blood was pumped around the body in a "double circulation", where after being returned to the heart, it is recirculated in a closed system to the lungs and back to the heart, where it is returned to the main circulation.

 Paper 5: A Case Of Strangulation Fabricated As Hanging: Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-20)
Usually in strangulation, the ligature mark is transversely placed in the lower aspect of neck below the level of thyroid cartilage in strangulation whereas in hanging it is obliquely placed in the upper aspect of neck.
Furthermore, the ligature mark has clearly been produced by some strong, firm, thin material, while the ligature material appearing in the photographs is a bed sheet, which is broad and soft.
This is an interesting case, where a careful study of the ligature material, ligature mark, and their comparative study made it possible to conclude positively that it was a case of strangulation fabricated as hanging.

 Vasectomy and Reverse Vasectomy -- eCureMe.com
A more permanent solution to preventing unwanted pregnancies is the vasectomy (surgical removal of the ductus deferens or ligature of right and left ductus deferens) for men and the salpingectomy (removal of the uterine tube) for women.
The principle behind a vasectomy is to block the passage of sperm from the testicles, where it is produced, through the vas deferens and the urethra, by tying up or removing the vas deferens.
Nowadays ligature, or crossover vasectomy, is preferred, as surgical reconstruction may restore the use of the canals in men who change their minds and decide to father more offspring (see Reverse Vasectomy below).

Hanging is a mode of death in which a ligature is wound round the neck and the noose is then tightened, the constricting force being the weight of the body.
This is a deep impression, made by the ligature material (such as the rope or the loin cloth with which the victim hangs himself) and is seen on the neck.
This is in sharp contrast with the ligature mark of strangulation which is seen all round the neck.
