Executive Summary

SuperStitch EL, the suturing device developed by Sutura (Fountain Valley, California) has been used successfully in early studies to close a patent foramen ovale (PFO), raising the possibility that its indications could be expanded.

Sutura's chairman and CSO, Dr Anthony Nobles, said that human testing would provide further data.
