Title (EN) A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR EFFECTING DORSAL VEIN LIGATION
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE LIGATURE DE VEINE DORSALE
Abstract:
(EN) A ligator assembly (200) comprising a hollow, two-piece, bullet-shaped cases (202) dimensioned to be inserted in and through a body member, a pair of suture needles (244) carried by the case, and a suture (250) affixed to the needles. The case is provided with a pair of guide tubes (242) for retaining the needles and guiding them out through a substantially transverse slot (230) at the end of the case. A drive mechanism is also provided for remotely driving the needles (272) longitudinally out of the case through the slot. The case is selectively connectable to an elongated tubular operator for placement of the ligator assembly. Apparatus for effecting an anastomosis comprises female and male connector components (300, 28') usable with an operator, an inflatable anvil assembly (23'), and a connector actuator and which include mutually facing clamping surfaces for clamping generally annular tissue portions of the first and second body members together.
(FR) Ensemble de ligature (200) comprenant des boîtiers (202) creux en deux pièces ayant la forme d'une balle dimensionnés pour être insérés dans et à travers une partie du corps, une paire d'aiguilles à suture (244) portées par le boîtier, ainsi qu'une suture (250) fixée aux aiguilles. Le boîtier est doté d'une paire de tubes de guidage (242) destinés à retenir les aiguilles et à les guider à travers une fente transversale à l'extrémité du boîtier. Un mécanisme d'entraînement est également prévu pour faire sortir longitudinalement à distance les aiguilles (272) du boîtier par la fente. Le boîtier peut être connecté de manière sélective à un opérateur tubulaire allongé afin de permettre la mise en place de l'ensemble de ligature. Un appareil permettant de procéder à une anastomose comprend des éléments connecteurs femelle et mâle (300, 28') pouvant être utilisés avec un opérateur, un ensemble enclume gonflable (23'), ainsi qu'un actuateur du connecteur, lesquels comprennent des surfaces de serrage se faisant mutuellement face et destinées à serrer ensemble des parties de tissu annulaires des première et seconde parties du corps.
