Title (EN) KNOT TYING METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF POUR REALISER DES NOEUDS
Abstract:
(EN) This invention is a method and apparatus for placing a knot such as a laparoscopy knot. Knot material (50) containing a knot is wound around a ferrule (20) surrouding a cylinder (10). A second ferrule (40) surrounds the first ferrule so that the edge of the second ferrule abuts and attaches to the end windings of the knot material. Sliding the second ferrule pushes the windings of knot material including the knot off of the first ferrule and free of the cylinder. The cylinder, ferrules, and knot material containing the knot may be assembled as one disposable unit.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif pour placer un noeud, par exemple lors d'une laparoscopie. Le matériau (50) contenant le noeud est enroulé autour d'une virole (20) entourant un cylindre (10). Une seconde virole (40) entoure la première de sorte que le bord de la seconde virole vienne en contact avec les enroulements terminaux du matériau (50) et se fixe à ces derniers. Le coulissement de la seconde virole pousse les enroulements du matériau contenant le noeud hors de la première virole et les dégage du cylindre. Le cylindre, les viroles et le matériau contenant le noeud peuvent être assemblés pour former une unité jetable.
