The ability to tie a safe, secure knot is one the first and most fundamental skills that a surgeon learns. In this submitted video, Dr. Rafik Yassa demonstrates a new innovation in surgical knot tying.
Yassa's knot is considered a substitute for Gallabin's Clamp assistance and is particularly useful when using monofilament and absorbable suture materials.
Yassa's knot is a simple, rapid, easily learnable technique, which is worth having among other useful resources in the surgeon’s armamentaria.
