Technique and uses for absorbable barbed sutures.

Abstract

The author describes barbed sutures as a unique wound closure tool. Their advantages include the closure of wounds without any knots or the need for a third hand. They are also capable of shifting tissues differentially along the suture to redistribute tensile and compressive forces. The author discusses the development of these tools and their application.
