The Dundee jamming knot, also known as the slip knot or the sliding knot, is a type of knot that is commonly used in laparoscopic surgery for suturing and knotting. It is a useful technique for securing sutures in a tight space with limited instrument mobility.
The Dundee jamming knot involves the use of a loop of suture that is passed through tissue, and then tightened by pulling on the free end of the suture. The knot is then secured by pulling the loop through the tissue, which causes the knot to "jam" or "lock" in place. This creates a secure knot that can be used for a variety of surgical applications, including closing incisions, repairing tissue, and ligating blood vessels.
Dr. Bhalla's demonstration of the Dundee jamming knot, along with the laparoscopic intracorporeal technique for continuous suturing and Aberdeen termination, provides surgeons and gynecologists with a comprehensive set of skills for laparoscopic suturing and knotting. These techniques can help improve the precision and safety of laparoscopic surgery, leading to better outcomes for patients.
