Title (EN) DURAL CLOSING SURGICAL FORCEPS
(FR) FORCEPS CHIRURGICAL POUR FERMETURE DURALE
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure is directed to a surgical forceps (10) for joining tissue on opposed sides of an incision including a pair of extension members (22, 24), wherein each extension member includes tissue engaging projections at a distal end thereof, and are dimensioned and adapted to engage tissue on respective opposed sides of the incision. A central member (12) is disposed between the extension member (22, 24), and defines a longitudinal axis. The central member (12) includes a foot glide (14) disposed at a distal end of the central member (12). The foot glide (14) defines a retaining surface dimensioned to retain tissue within the incision. The extension members (22, 24) are adapted for movement relative to the central member (12) which causes the tissue engaging projections to engage and draw the tissue on the opposed sides of the incision toward each other in a general approximated relation. Also disclosed is a method of approximating tissue on opposed sides of an opening.
(FR) L'invention concerne un forceps chirurgical (10) pour refermer les tissus sur les côtés opposés d'une incision, qui comprend une paire d'extenseurs (22, 24); chaque extenseur, qui a des protubérances pour attraper les tissus, en une extrémité distale, est dimensionné et conçu pour attraper les tissus sur les côtés opposés d'une incision. Un élément central (12) est placé entre les extenseurs (22, 24), définissant un axe longitudinal, et comprenant un guide (14) en une extrémité distale. Ce guide (14) définit une surface de retenue dimensionnée pour retenir le tissu dans l'incision. Les extenseurs (22, 24) sont conçus pour se déplacer par rapport à l'élément central (12), de sorte que les protubérances qui attrapent les tissus attrapent et tirent les tissus sur les côtés opposés de l'incision pour les faire se rapprocher dans une direction de convergence générale. L'invention concerne aussi un procédé de rapprochement des tissus des deux côtés d'une incision.
