Title: SUTURING APPARATUS USING AUTOTRANSFER AND METHOD THEREOF
Abstract:
A suturing apparatus and method thereof using autotransfer are provided. The suturing apparatus includes a tube that has a rod movable there within and a needle that has an insertion portion. A suture engages with a tip of the needle or the tube. The insertion portion of the needle is inserted through a material prior to engagement with the suture and is withdrawn with the suture back through the material. The suturing system allows for single hand operation, thus simplifying a suturing process.
