In 1975, Professor Kenya Tsuge of the University of Hiroshima published a technique for repairing tendons using loop suture needles, a technique that became known as“Tsuge suture.”
Tsuge looped suture needles were developed by Kono Seisakusho as a tool for making Tsuge sutures at the request of Professor Kenya Tsuge.
These needles have been used along with Tsuge sutures by surgeons around the world for over 40 years.
