Abstract: The tensile strength of a double-loop technique for tendon anastomosis was compared with those of two modified Kessler techniques and the traditional Pulvertaft weave technique. The experiments were made on specimens of fresh human extensor tendon. The double-loop technique was significantly stronger than the other suture techniques.
