This note describes the principles and the electronic circuitry used for a device to measure suture tension during surgery. As suture tension is the force per unit length necessary to bring into contact the two lips of the cut, the authors used a transducer which converts force into an electrical quantity, and which is applied to two holders which are fixed on each border of the cut. 4 Refs.

Abstract

This note describes the principles and the electronic circuitry used for a device to measure suture tension during surgery. As suture tension is the force per unit length necessary to bring into contact the two lips of the cut, the authors used a transducer which converts force into an electrical quantity, and which is applied to two holders which are fixed on each border of the cut. 4 Refs.
