Fig. 1

The resorbable implant, LigaTie®, was constructed as a flexible band and case with a locking mechanism. Design features for tissue engaging properties were added to the locking case to increase friction between implant and tissue (left). The band was introduced into the locking case, which allowed one-way motion only when the locking mechanism engaged with the perforations, and a self-locking loop was formed (right)
