(54) Title (EN): SUTURING KIT AND PACKAGE
(54) Title (FR): KIT DE SUTURE ET EMBALLAGE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): A suturing kit includes a suture and a suture holder for holding the suture. The suture has a first end and a second, opposite, end. The suture holder includes an elongated wall defining a suture receiving passage that is elongated along a longitudinal axis and terminates at a suture exit opening. The suture receiving passage has a width at least twice the diameter of the suture and receives the suture such that the suture is folded over forming a half loop section spaced from the suture exit opening. A first second of the suture extends from the half loop section toward the first end and a second section of the suture extends from the half loop section towards the second end. The first section and the second section of the suture within the suture receiving passage are aligned parallel to the longitudinal axis.
(FR): Un kit de suture selon la présente invention comprend une suture et un support de suture pour maintenir la suture. La suture a une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité opposée. Le support de suture comprend une paroi allongée définissant un passage de réception de suture qui est allongée le long d'un axe longitudinal et se termine au niveau d'une ouverture de sortie de suture. Le passage de réception de suture a une largeur au moins deux fois supérieure au diamètre de la suture et reçoit la suture de sorte que la suture soit pliée par-dessus la formation d'une section en demi-boucle espacée de l'ouverture de sortie de suture. Une première partie de la suture s'étend depuis la section de demi-boucle vers la première extrémité et une seconde section de la suture s'étend depuis la section de demi-boucle vers la seconde extrémité. La première section et la seconde section de la suture à l'intérieur du passage de réception de suture sont alignées parallèlement à l'axe longitudinal.
