  IMEX - Suture Anchor Clinical Case Examples
Torn collateral ligaments are usually sutured for primary reconstruction; however, due to the slow healing and remodeling of collateral ligament tears, it is common to utilize sutures and anchors to support a primary repair.
Placing a suture anchor at origin and insertion of the collateral ligament and spanning the two anchors with a relatively strong strand of suture material is a typical method of supporting primary ligament repair.
The purpose of the ilio-femoral suture is to limit external rotation of the hip and thus decrease likelihood of repeat luxation.

 Gray, Henry. 1918. Anatomy of the Human Body. Page 183
The squamosal suture arches backward from the pterion and connects the temporal squama with the lower border of the parietal: this suture is continuous behind with the short, nearly horizontal parietomastoid suture, which unites the mastoid process of the temporal with the region of the mastoid angle of the parietal.
Extending from above downward and forward across the cranium are the coronal and lambdoidal sutures; the former connects the parietals with the frontal, the latter, the parietals with the occipital.
The zygomatic arch is formed by the zygomatic process of the temporal and the temporal process of the zygomatic, the two being united by an oblique suture; the tendon of the Temporalis passes medial to the arch to gain insertion into the coronoid process of the mandible.

  Suture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sutures are the stitches doctors, and especially surgeons, use to hold skin, internal organs, blood vessels and all other tissues of the human body together, after they have been severed by injury or surgery.
Other nonabsorbable sutures are made of artificial fibers, like polypropylene, polyester or nylon; these may or may not have coatings to enhance their performance characteristics.
Sutures were originally manufactured ranging in size from #1 to #6, with #1 being the smallest.

 A Fourier Method to Describe and Reconstruct Suture Patterns
Suture patterns in the shelled cephalopods are obviously periodic structures.
Alternatively, functional constraints may produce complexity of the septum, and the suture pattern may be an indirect consequence of those constraints, as in the spandrels of San Marco (Gould and Lewontin 1979).
In this paper, "suture" refers to the juncture of the septum and the shell wall, and is a structural part of the cephalopod shell.

 Suture - Background, History, Raw Materials, Design, The Manufacturing, Quality Control
A surgical suture is used to close the edges of a wound or incision and to repair damaged tissue.
Synthetic absorbable sutures may be made of polyglycolic acid, a glycolide-lactide copolymer; or polydioxanone, a copolymer of glycolide and trimethylene carbonate.
The length of suture is mechanically inserted into the hollow in the needle, and the needle is crimped onto the fiber.

 IMEX - Suture Anchors
Developed in conjunction with several referral surgical facilities, these anchors and related suture materials should be considered temporary fixation devices that allow tissue to heal to its original location, to protect primary soft tissue repairs during the early phases of healing, or to facilitate the formation of fibrous tissue to assist in maintaining joint stability.
The suture anchor’s square drive-head with cross-hole is approximately 2.0mm in height.
Suture anchors are screwed into bone to act as insertion points for sutures used in reconstruction of ligaments, joint capsules and tendons.

The otherwise smooth remediation of the telecast of a game of soccer - a fiction which is elsewhere a commitment made by the commentary track - intersects with a moment of ludological suture: from reportage, the announcers are moving almost to a kind of sympathy, addressing the close effort made by the player.
Suture is an appropriation in film theory from psychoanalysis, and in general refers to the use of cinematic technique - of mechanisms from the plane of film practice - which generates positions in the audience.
The reading of suture in film is a fairly subtle project, and resembles the psychoanalytic process from which the theory came.

 Evaluation of Blunt Suture Needles in Preventing Percutaneous Inj...
Of the 61 injuries involving suture needles, 56 (92%) were associated with conventional curved needles, none with blunt needles, and five (8%) with straight needles.
The increase in use of blunt suture needles was temporally associated with a decrease in PIs from curved suture needles, from 5.9 PIs per 100 procedures (49 PIs among 835 procedures) in 1993 to 1.1 PIs per 100 procedures (seven PIs among 629 procedures) in 1994 (p less than 0.01) (Figure 1).
Blunt suture needles may be particularly useful in preventing PIs during suturing in a poorly visualized anatomic space -- a situation associated with increased risks for PI for surgeons and with transmission of hepatitis B virus from surgeons to patients (7).

 Dr Michael Rich - Suture Lift
The Suture Lift is ideally suited for both men and women whose skin tone has become lax with time or sun damage and each patient is assessed individually for their suitability.
The sutures are inserted via a long fine needle to the area of loose or sagging skin where it is then looped and threaded back though a small nick behind the ear.
The Sutures may be removed with minimal tissue harm if you are unhappy with the result, as they do not become fixed in position until about 4 weeks after the procedure.

 LDA Toggle Suture
By allowing the toggle suture to break under these conditions, the likelihood of a hole being torn in the abomasum, should a problem occur, is greatly reduced.
When the first suture is in place, it is easier to move forward with the second suture because the trapped gas in the abomasum 'floats' upward and forward.
A right flank laparotomy revealed the abomasum was sutured properly, but part of the fundic part of the abomasum was still able to dislocate due to severe atony of the abomasum.

 Choice of suture material in Laparoscopic surgery
For internal sutures, the least number of knots as possible should be used to avoid foreign body volume overload, to ensure knot security and to avoid an excessive knot burden and consequent foreign body reaction.
The coated sutures decrease the drag through tissue, so it is easier to use, but there are variable rates of absorption.
The knot is the most important part of the suture closure n vivo, the knot is the determining factor in suture strength in 95% of sutures tested.

 Snared suture trimmer patent invention
A fitting is on the distal end of the shaft, the fitting having an aperture formed therethrough, the aperture axially aligned with the bore of the lumen and in communication with the opening formed in the shaft.
Two free ends of the suture loop are brought out through a tissue tract leading to the puncture, and the ends may be externally tied by the treating physician.
More significantly, a relatively long suture end, extending from the knot at the vessel repair to the skin level, may act as a "wick" for infective microorganisms which may be present at skin level.

 Trilobite Facial Suture Types
Facial sutures once played a primary role in defining family-level relationships, and several common patterns within the three types above were named according to the families that bore the suture pattern.
Because it is difficult sometimes to envision the nature of the dorsal and ventral sutures, and how they partition the cephalon, I have developed images below that show the sutures in an intact and a disarticulated cephalon of representative trilobites, including ones with large to small rostral plates, and one lacking a rostral plate.
Note that in species with conterminant hypostomes (ones attached firmly to the anterior boublure), the hypostome may either have well-developed sutures, or may be permanently atached to the rostral plate.

The goals of wound closure include obliteration of dead space, even distribution of tension along deep suture lines, maintenance of tensile strength across the wound until tissue tensile strength is adequate, and approximation and eversion of the epithelial portion of the closure.
Suture material is a foreign body implanted into human tissues; it will elicit a foreign body tissue reaction.
The goal of this article is to review the types of sutures and needles for wound closure and to discuss principles that influence suture and needle selection.

Such is the making of what could have been a routine amnesiac thriller in the Hitchcock mold, but Suture puts a bold spin on the formula with its casting.
Suture is presented in its original 2.35:1 theatrical aspect ratio.
Suture is a clever little thriller that shows great potential for the filmmaking team of Scott McGhee and David Siegel.
