Title (EN) CATHETER INTRODUCER WITH SUTURE CAPABILITY
(FR) INTRODUCTEUR DE CATHETER PERMETTANT D'EFFECTUER UNE SUTURE
Abstract:
(EN) An assembly (10) is provided for suturing an incision in a tissue wall of a patient. The assembly comprises a first elongated member (20) having a hollow portion and an opening through a sidewall adjacent the hollow portion. The assembly may further comprise a second elongated member (30) positioned about the first elongated member and having an access hole therethrough, and a needle (80) insertable through both the tissue wall and the access hole (46) to provide a pathway for insertion of the suture material through the opening and into the hollow portion. The second elongated member includes an expandable portion to define a cavity in alignment with the opening. Such expandable portion may comprise longitudinal slits (40) which expand to form wings (42). A third member is positioned on the second member and includes a lumen for guiding the needle toward the access hole in the second member.
(FR) Ensemble (10) permettant de suturer une incision dans la paroi tissulaire d'un patient. L'ensemble comprend un premier élément allongé (20) présentant une partie creuse et une ouverture ménagée dans une paroi latérale adjacente à la partie creuse. L'ensemble peut également comporter un deuxième élément allongé (30) placé autour du premier élément allongé, et dans lequel est prévu un trou d'accès, ainsi qu'une aiguille (80) pouvant être insérée dans la paroi tissulaire et dans le trou d'accès (46) afin de permettre l'insertion du matériau de suture dans l'ouverture et dans la partie creuse. Le deuxième élément allongé comprend une partie qui s'élargit pour définir une cavité alignée par rapport à l'ouverture. Cette partie pouvant s'élargir peut comprendre des fentes longitudinales (40) qui s'agrandissent pour former des ailettes (42). Un troisième élément est positionné sur le deuxième élément et comprend une lumière permettant de guider l'aiguille vers le trou d'accès dans le deuxième élément allongé.
