A new core suture technique for flexor tendon repair: biomechanical analysis of tensile strength and gap formation



A new core suture technique for flexor tendon repair: biomechanical analysis of tensile strength and gap formation



Journal of Hand Surgery 25(4): 390-392



The purpose of this study was to test in vitro a new flexor tendon suture technique that has been developed to withstand the in vivo forces of active tendon motion. This new core suture technique involves locking loops in the form of a cross stitch. The new technique was tested for ultimate tensile strength and gap formation in cadaver human flexor tendons on a tensile testing machine. The new technique proved significantly stronger than the modified Kessler core suture.
