Title (EN) SUTURE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SUTURE
Abstract:
(EN) A suture device (210) comprises a loop member (224) formed on one side with an aperture (216) and an access channel (220) extending from the aperture to an opening (215) defined by the loop. A thread (226) connected to loop is provided along a portion of its length with a series of tapered projections (228). Protuberances (211), (213) are provided on the loop member along the access channel between the opening and the aperture for preventing a return of the thread through the channel upon a passing of the thread through the loop and subsequently through the channel into the aperture.
(FR) Un dispositif de suture (210) comprend un élément à boucle (224) située d'un côté et possédant un orifice (216) et un passage d'accès (220) s'étendant depuis l'orifice à une ouverture (215) définie par la boucle. Un fil (226) relié à la boucle est pourvu sur une partie de sa longueur d'une série de protubérances coniques (228). Des parties saillantes (211, 213) sont prévues sur l'élément à boucle le long du passage entre l'ouverture et l'orifice, ceci afin d'empêcher que lorsqu'on passe le fil dans la boucle il puisse revenir dans le passage et ensuite pénétrer dans l'orifice.
