Abstract

Barbed sutures and connecting devices have been historically described and used in flexor tendon tenorrhaphies. With the improvement in biomaterial, we have witnessed recently the resurgence of this concept. In this article, we review the historical use of barbed devices in repairing flexor tendons and explore the available barbed surgical devices that have been described in recent years.
