Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Radioactive I-125 seeds that are loaded into absorbable sutures are convenient for permanent or removable interstitial-implantation. A simple device for loading radioactive seeds into commercially available sutures is described. This loader permits fast placement of seeds in the suture with minimal exposure to the involved personnel. Variable spacing is accomplished either by absorbable spacers or by minor manipulation of the loaded suture.
