IMPROVED DESIGN!

  • Stronger tip

  • Stability of shaft increased

  • Handle made of stainless steel

Advantages of the i-Stitch:

  • Secure attachment of sutures
  • Blunt, non-cutting suture end for pushing through tissue
  • Reduced risk of bleeding from the suture puncture site
  • Safe and quick, even in hard-to-reach places

 

Fixation in 3 simple steps

The innovative i-Stitch from A.M.I. offers a quick, effective way of attaching sutures to tissue, particularly in areas that are difficult
to reach such as the medial posterior aspect of the sacrospinous ligament.

Comfortable Fixation in 3 simple steps:

Once equipped with the disposable loading unit, which comprises the thumb-slider, a dispenser, a hollow needle and speciallyformed suture material, the reusable instrument is ready for suture fixation in just three simple steps. Once positioned, the tip of the i-Stitch is pressed into the tissue until it penetrates. The hollow needle filled with suture material is then pushed forward until the elastic suture end passes through the instrument’s tip. Once the suture end has clicked firmly into place, the hollow needle can then be pulled back and the instrument removed carefully from the tissue.

i-Stitch for transvaginal sacrospinous fixation

G-iStich-transvaginale-fixation

After preparing the area to ensure sufficient access to the fixation point on the sacrospinous ligament, the surgeon marks that point with his or her index finger. Using the finger as a guide, the surgeon then slides the i-Stitch along it until the instrument reaches the desired position on the ligament.

Now the tip of the loading unit can be pushed forward until a click can be heard, and the suture end is secured in place. After pulling back the loading unit, the surgeon can then remove the instrument from the site leaving the suture attached to tissue. Secure fixation of the suture in a very difficult position in just a matter of minutes!
