(EN)The invention relates to a suture manipulation device. The suture manipulation device includes a body (302) and a snare (312). The snare is operatively connected to the body and is adapted to protract from die body, and after protracting from the body, rotate independent of the body. The snare is further adapted to ensnare a portion of suture (310) passed through tissue while rotating, and secure the portion of the suture.
