CLAIMS:

1 . A suturing kit comprising:

a suture having a first end and a second, opposite, end;

a suture holder including an elongate wall defining a suture receiving passage that is elongated along a longitudinal axis and terminates at a suture exit opening, the suture receiving passage having a width at least twice the diameter of the suture and receiving the suture such that the suture is folded over forming a half loop section spaced from the suture exit opening, a first section extending from the half loop section toward the first end, and a second section extending from the half loop section toward the second end, wherein each of the first section and the second section of the suture from adjacent to the half loop section to the suture exit opening within the suture receiving passage are aligned along the longitudinal axis.

2. The suturing kit of claim 1 , further comprising a first needle at the first end of the suture and at least one suturing device having a portion configured to be inserted into a patient during a surgical procedure, the at least one suturing device including a first needle holder configured to hold the first needle.

3. The suturing kit of claim 2, wherein the suture is a double - armed suture having a second needle at the second end, wherein the at least one suturing device includes a first suturing device including the first needle holder and a second suturing device, which is a separate instrument from the first suturing device, including a second needle holder configured to hold the second needle.

4. The suturing kit of claim 3, further comprising a package base including a first suturing device recess that receives the first suturing device, a second suturing device recess that receives the second suturing device and a suture holder recess that receives the suture holder.

5. The suturing kit of claim 4, wherein the suture holder recess is positioned between the first suturing device recess and the second suturing device recess.

6. The suturing kit of claim 5, wherein the first section of the suture residing outside of the suture holder extends away from the second section of the suture residing outside of the suture holder when the first suturing device is received in the first suturing device recess, the second suturing device is received in the second suturing device recess and the suture holder is received in the suture holder recess.

7. The suturing kit of claim 1 , wherein the elongate wall has a closed cross section normal to the longitudinal axis.

8. The suturing kit of claim 7, wherein the closed cross section is circular.

9. The suturing kit of claim 1 , wherein the suture receiving passage terminates at a second opening spaced from the suture exit opening along the longitudinal axis.

10. The suturing kit of claim 9, wherein the half loop section is located nearer to the second opening as compared to the suture exit opening.

1 1 . The suturing kit of claim 1 , wherein the elongate wall includes a smooth interior surface defining the suture receiving passage.

12. The suturing kit of claim 1 , further comprising a knot pusher.

13. The suturing kit of claim 12, wherein the knot pusher is connected with the suture holder.

14. The suturing kit of claim 13, wherein the suture receiving passage terminates at a second opening spaced from the suture exit opening along the longitudinal axis and the knot pusher covers the second opening.

15. A method of assembling a suturing kit, the method comprising:

inserting a midsection of a suture, which is positioned between a first end and a second end of the suture, into a suture receiving passage of a suture holder; and

drawing the suture through the suture receiving passage such that the suture is looped over having only one turning point within the suture receiving passage when viewed in a plane coincident with the longest dimension of the suture holder.

16. The method of claim 15, wherein drawing the suture further includes connecting a vacuum source in fluid communication with the suture receiving passage.

17. The method of claim 15, wherein the suture is a double-armed suture having a first needle connected at the first end and a second needle connected at the second end.

18. The method of claim 17, further comprising loading the first needle in a first suturing device and loading the second needle into a second suturing device, wherein each suturing device includes a portion configured to be inserted into a patient during a surgical procedure.

19. The method of claim 15, further comprising connecting a knot pusher to the suture holder.
