SuturTek Launches 360(degree) Fascia Closure Device(TM), the First ... - Business Wire (press release)

According to the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the most common cause of suture needlestick injury is fascia closure (closure of the underlying layer below the skin that must be closed at the conclusion of most major surgical procedures), which accounts for 59 percent of all reported sharps injuries in the Operating Room (OR). Approximately 5 million fascia closures are performed each year in the U.S. alone. The SuturTek 360(degree) Fascia Closure Device is specifically designed to protect surgeons, nurses and OR staff against potentially deadly suture needlestick injuries during fascia closure by ensuring that the sharp point of the suture needle - which is contained within a sterile, disposable suture cartridge at all times - is never exposed.
