Title (EN) SUTURE INSERTION DEVICE FOR THE TREATMENT OF URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'INTRODUCTION DE SUTURE POUR LE TRAITEMENT DE L'INCONTINENCE URINAIRE D'EFFORT
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and method for inserting a suture thread through a curved channel in a bone. The curved channel is formed by a curved needle, having a head and a shank, driven into the bone at one point and emerging from the bone at another point. The needle preferably includes superelastic material. The needle is inserted into the bone using an insertion tool, into which the needle is loaded and which forces the needle into the bone, either by percussive impact or, alternatively, by drilling into the bone, wherein the head of the needle includes a drill bit. A suture is threaded through the curved channel, and the ends of the suture are tied together to suspend tissue or a sling to the bone. Alternatively, two needles, at least one of which is curved, may be used, wherein each of the needles is adapted to form and be removed from a respective partial channel in the bone, which partial channels meet to form the curved channel, passing through the bone.
(FR) Appareil et procédé d'introduction d'un fil de suture par l'intermédiaire d'un canal incurvé dans un os. Le canal incurvé est formé par une aiguille incurvée, comportant une tête et une tige, que l'on enfonce dans l'os en un point et qui ressort de l'os en un autre point. Cette aiguille se compose de préférence d'un matériau superélastique. L'aiguille est introduite dans l'os à l'aide d'un outil d'introduction, dans lequel on charge l'aiguille, et qui enfonce cette dernière dans l'os, soit par impact à percussion soit, dans une variante, par perçage de l'os, la tête de l'aiguille comprenant dans ce cas un outil de forage. On fait passer un fil de suture dans le canal incurvé, et l'on attache par ligature les extrémités de la suture de manière à suspendre à l'os un tissu ou un élément servant d'écharpe. Dans une autre variante, on peut utiliser deux aiguilles, dont l'une au moins est incurvée, chacune desquelles est conçue pour former dans l'os un canal partiel respectif et pour en être extraite, les canaux partiels se rejoignant pour former le canal incurvé traversant l'os.
