The Barbed Suture consists of 360 degree uni-directional and bi-directional anchors, respectively, armed with a surgical needle on one end and an adjustable fixation loop on the opposite end. The anchors are oriented in one direction and allow tissue approximation without the need to tie surgical knots. Designed as a self-pace module, cases comprise of unique educational aids including an anatomical 3D map, real-life videos, visual guidance and objective performance metrics. Real suturing handles allow for the life-like practice of suturing skills.
