Abstract

See full text

A self-retaining braided suture comprises a braided suture with tissue retainers formed on the surface such that the suture can engage and retain tissue without knots. The suture includes a plurality of braided fibers which may be covered by a non-braided sheath of a material which enhances the formation, elevation and/or deployment of the retainers. The retainers can be formed so as not to disrupt the braided fibers. The self-retaining braided suture has properties which enhance the tensile strength of the suture while preserving flexibility and durability. Methods for manufacturing and using self-retaining braided suture are also described.
