Stress State and Optimization of the Parameters of Interrupted and Machine Surgical Sutures of Human Intestine

For the first time, an approximate solution of the problem on the stress state of one of the main types of medical suture — an interrupted or an identical machine suture — is suggested with the example of human intestinal anastomosis.
