How a Quill™ Veterinary barbed suture works
Anchor the Quill™ Device
With the Quill™ device needle, take initial bite of the tissue. Then, pass the needle through the variable loop. Cinch down to engage the barbs at the fixation point.
Run the Stitch
Continue approximating the tissue in a running fashion until the opposite end of the wound is reached. The barbs retract for delivery and then engage for fixation.
Lock the Stitch
