Brain electrode lead anchoring device
The invention discloses a device for anchoring a brain lead, comprising: an anchoring ring comprising a circular base and a flange joining together where the inner walls forms an aperture defining a passage of a lead, and outer walls engages with a burr hole to secure said ring to the cranium; and a septum contained within the aperture of the anchoring ring, comprising a slit in its center to allow the brain lead to pass through. Due to the fact the septum is already placed in the aperture when the trocar is removed from the brain, the body of the brain lead is immediately clamped by the elastic material of the septum while the tip of trocar is removed from the slit of septum.

Anchor/suture used for medical procedures
For suture tying in a medical procedure including the use of an anchor that includes a suture locking device that includes a sliding pin guided by axial side slots formed in the locking device that forces the suture where the two ends thereof are inserted into the interior of the suture locking mechanism to drive the captured suture and pin to fit into a recess on the top of the suture locking mechanism such that the top of the pin binds the suture against the upper inner surface of the recess. The recess can be serrated to enhance the locking capability and the pin is polygonal shaped to provide side surfaces that run parallel to the wall of the recess to assure that the side portion of the pin does not fracture the suture and cause it to weaken.
