Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CARDIAC STABILIZATION AND ARTERIAL OCCLUSION
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE POUR STABILISATION CARDIAQUE ET OCCLUSION ARTERIELLE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and method of use is provided for locally stabilizing an anastomotic site during a beating heart surgical procedure which includes occluding a section of the artery receiving the bypass graft vessel. An apparatus is provided to stabilize the epicardium and the operational field, and includes a platform that can be compressed onto the epicardium or tensioned by pulling the epicardium upwardly, thereby providing a stabilized operational field. At least one occluding member provides means to occlude the section of artery receiving the bypass graft vessel. An adjustable stabilizing arm can be used in conjunction with the platform to further provide stability to the epicardium during the beating heart bypass graft procedure.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un dispositif et à un procédé d'utilisation de ce dispositif aux fins de stabiliser localement un site anastomotique au cours d'une intervention chirurgicale cardiaque qui consiste à réaliser l'occlusion d'une partie d'une artère recevant le vaisseau greffé de pontage. L'invention concerne un dispositif permettant se stabiliser l'épicarde et le champ fonctionnel. Ce dispositif comporte une plate-forme qui peut être comprimée sur l'épicarde ou mise sous tension en tirant l'épicarde vers le haut, ce qui permet d'obtenir un champ fonctionnel stabilisé. Au moins un élément d'occlusion permet de réaliser l'occlusion de la partie de l'artère recevant le vaisseau greffé de pontage. Un bras stabilisateur réglable peut être utilisé conjointement avec la plate-forme pour assurer une plus grande stabilité à l'épicarde au cours de l'intervention de greffe de pontage.
