Title (EN) A SUTURE PACKAGE AND A METHOD FOR PACKAGING SUTURES
(FR) CONDITIONNEMENT POUR FIL DE SUTURE ET PROCEDE DE CONDITIONNEMENT DE FILS DE SUTURE
Abstract:
(EN) A suture package comprising a housing (9) surrounding a cavity (11) and having a port (13) through some portion of the housing (9), wherein said cavity (11) contains a length of suture (15) in a configuration sequentially ordered along the suture (15) withdrawal path (19) but otherwise random. In a preferred embodiment the cavity (11) has a vent (14, 17) through a portion of the housing (9) to allow the use of a gaseous flow (18) to aid in the loading of the length of suture (15) into the cavity (11). A method of suture packaging is also described.
(FR) Un conditionnement de fil de suture comprend un boîtier (9) entourant une cavité (11) et pourvu d'une ouverture (13) ménagée à travers une certaine partie du boîtier, où ladite cavité (11) contient une longueur de suture (15) placée selon une configuration ordonnée et séquentielle le long de la trajectoire de prélèvement (19) du fil (15), mais autrement aléatoire. Selon un mode de réalisation préféré, la cavité (11) comporte un trou (14, 17) ménagé à travers une partie du boîtier (9) afin de permettre l'utilisation et l'aide d'un écoulement gazeux (18) pour le chargement de la longueur de suture (15) à l'intérieur de la cavité (11). Un procédé de conditionnement de fil de suture est aussi décrit.
