Title
(EN) ENDOSCOPIC SUTURE PLACEMENT TOOL
(FR) INSTRUMENT ENDOSCOPIQUE DE PLACEMENT DE SUTURE
Abstract
(EN)
This invention is a surgical tool for endoscopic suture placement which permits a surgeon to place controlled and precise internal ligatures. The tool utilizes a drive rod (2) including an articulating or deflecting portion (5). When forced to an extended position, the deflecting or articulating portion forms a hook or J-shaped needle, the tip of which can be used to accurately position the suture.

L'instrument met en ÷uvre une tige de commande comprenant une section articulée ou souple.
