Laparoscopic Weston Knot
11 months ago
Nowadays, the acquisition of safe, effective yet rapid and minimally invasive suturing skills has become not only desirable but also an essential part of any laparoscopic intervention. Laparoscopic Weston Knot was initially started by arthroscopic surgeons but now widely used in laparoscopic general surgery or gynecology. Although there remains a substantial body of literature focusing mainly on varied minimal access knotting techniques, there seem to be scarcely any contributions devoted specifically to the crux of its successful execution—the precise intracorporeal needle loading methodology that eventually translates into easy and secure tissue approximation.
