A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11812942B2) discloses a suturing device designed to streamline the suturing process during medical procedures. The device consists of a tubular body with a longitudinal cavity, a sliding member, and a surgical thread connected to the sliding member. The sliding member is composed of two bodies connected by a junction element, with the surgical thread secured to the junction element. The design aims to minimize the size of the tubular body by housing the surgical thread within a peripheral groove of the bodies, allowing for more precise and efficient suturing.

Furthermore, the patent details the configuration of the junction element, which can develop into a "V" shape with angled portions and a common vertex. This unique design ensures secure attachment of the surgical thread to the sliding member, enhancing the device's functionality. Additionally, the suturing device includes movement means for translating the sliding member from a rest position to an operating position, controlled by an actuating member for user convenience. Overall, the patented suturing device offers a novel and practical solution for medical professionals, improving the suturing process with its innovative design and functionality.
