Surgical Needle Patent
 

Combined surgical needle-braided suture device

A surgical needle is attached to a braided suture of particular construction to provide a combined surgical needle-braided suture device. A shrinkable tubing is employed to secure the needle to the suture. The tubing shrinks in response to the application of energy, e.g., heat. Attachment parameters may be controlled to provide standard needle attachment or removable needle attachment.

Surgical needle-suture combination and apparatus and method for attaching the same

An improved surgical needle is disclosed. The needle has a butt. The butt has a proximal and a distal end. A blind hole is in the butt. The hole originates at the proximal and terminates at the distal end of the butt. A crimp is adjacent to the butt. The improvement to the crimp comprises a first and a second side that are essentially parallel. A third side is essentially perpendicular to the first and second sides. A fourth side is curvilinear. The curvilinear fourth side can be a semicircle. A machine and a method of attaching a surgical suture to the improved needle is also disclosed.

Surgical needle with an adjustable eye

A surgical needle comprising an elongate shaft having proximal and distal ends, said distal end further comprising an eye which can be opened and closed, and said elongate shaft further comprising a means for opening and closing said eye. The needle may be securely affixed to a handle for convenient use. The needle may be used to place sutures in a wide variety of applications.
