FastStitch Suturing Device

If the incisions from abdominal surgeries are not closed properly after operation, complications such as infection, herniation or evisceration  may arise.  Student inventors from Johns Hopkins have developed a disposable suturing tool that guides each stitch and reduces the likelihood of accidental organ punctures.  The FastStitch is described as “a cross between pliers and a hole-puncher” and is projected to help reduce post-operative complications.
