Title (EN) SUTURING INSTRUMENT WITH MULTIPLE ROTATABLY MOUNTED OFFSET NEEDLE HOLDERS AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME
(FR) INSTRUMENT A SUTURER A PLUSIEURS PORTE-AIGUILLE MONTES ROTATIF ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An instrument for suturing anatomical tissue with a suture needle that includes a barrel (32) having a two needle holding apparatus (40, 50) therein which can be manipulated from a proximal end of the barrel. Jaws (50A, 50B) of each needle holding apparatus are offset from a rotatable shaft (42, 44) by a transverse arm (51A, 51B). In an insertion position, the jaws (50A, 50B) are confined within the diametrical dimension of the barrel (32) at a distal end thereof. After insertion, the jaws (50A, 50B) can be manipulated to extend beyond the diametrical dimension of the barrel (32) to provide a large working span in which tissue can be sutured.
(FR)Cet instrument à suturer du tissu anatomique avec une aiguille à suture comporte un barillet (32) intégrant deux dispositifs (40, 50) porte-aiguille manipulables depuis l'extrémité proximale du barillet. Les mâchoires (50A, 50B) de chaque dispositif porte-aiguille sont désaxées de la longueur d'un bras transversal (51A, 51B) par rapport à une tige rotative (42, 44). En position d'insertion, les mâchoires (50A, 50B) sont rentrées dans le volume diamétral du barillet (32), au niveau de son extrémité distale. Après insertion, une manipulation permet de déployer les mâchoires (50A, 50B) hors du volume diamétral du barillet (32) de façon à occuper un grand volume d'intervention dans lequel il soit possible de suturer le tissu.
