Title
(EN) SURGICAL SUTURING DEVICE
(FR) INSTRUMENT DE SUTURE CHIRURGICALE
Abstract
(EN)
An improved device (200) and method for suturing penetrations through tissue into a body cavity. The device should find particular use in laparoscopic surgical procedures. A device according to the invention includes a shaft (202) and an inverted needle (210) joined to the shaft. Two ends of a length of suture material (244) are attached at or near a sharpened proximal tip of the needle. The device may include a movable shield (43) that is slidable to alternately cover and expose the sharpened tip of the needle. This shield may include a blunt distal end and an inclined proximal surface to assist the surgeon in guiding the hook into and out of the body cavity. The device may be provided with a visual and tactile indicator (65) to assist the user in threading the suture material into a selected side of the hook.

Instrument amélioré (200) et procédé associé permettant de suturer des pénétrations à travers les tissus dans des cavités corporelles et s'utilisant plus particulièrement dans des procédures de chirurgie laparoscopique. Cet instrument comporte une tige (202) et une aiguille recourbée (210) fixée à la tige. Les deux extrémités d'une longueur de fil de suture (244) sont attachées sur ou à proximité de la pointe proximale affilée de l'aiguille. L'instrument peut être muni d'une protection mobile (43) coulissante pouvant couvrir ou découvrir la pointe affilée de l'aiguille, protection qui peut comporter une extrémité distale émoussée et une surface proximale inclinée aidant le chirurgien à guider le crochet lorsqu'il pénètre dans la cavité corporelle ou en ressort. L'instrument peut en outre être doté d'un indicateur visuel et tactile (65) aidant le chirurgien à faire passer le fil de suture du côté voulu du crochet.
