Title
(EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT FOR PLACING SUTURE OR FASTENERS
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL DESTINE A PLACER DES FILS DE SUTURE OU DES AGRAFES
Abstract
(EN)
A surgical instrument for use in placing suture or fasteners in tissue at a remote location such as a laparoscopic surgery, is comprised of an elongated handle (12) having a coiled projection (14) at its distal end. The coiled projection is employed in penetrating and positioning a length of suture (70, 110) or fastener (48) in tissue, for example, as in tissue proximity.
(FR)
Instrument chirurgical destiné à placer des fils de suture ou des agrafes dans des tissus à un endroit éloigné, par exemple lors d'une intervention laparoscopique, qui est composé d'une poignée allongée (12) dotée à son extrémité distale d'une partie saillante (14) en spirale. Ladite partie en spirale est employée pour introduire et placer une longueur de fil de suture (70, 110) ou une agrafe (48) dans des tissus, par exemple, pour rapprocher des bords de plaie.
