Device sutures tissues quickly and durably

Logan, UT-MedicineLodge, Inc. has received FDA clearance to market its new ZipKnot suture fastener. Used with a standard knot pusher, the device approximates and/or ligates soft tissue using surgical suture. ZipKnot sutures are stronger and more reliable than surgically tied knots, the manufacturer says, and ligation is faster, reducing operating room time. The product is currently under development for use in an array of surgical procedures.
