Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides a finger-guided suturing device, including a housing in the form of a body provided with a bore, the surface of which is substantially a surface of rotation, the housing being cut along a plane radially offset from an axial plane of the bore by such a distance as to cause the remaining bore to subtend an angle of more than 180° (thereby the device can be fitted with friction to); a surgeon's finger while at least partially exposing the ventral portion of the distal phalanx thereof. A thimble-like member is movable in rotation within the housing to drive a surgical needle of a substantially semi-circular shape.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de suture guidé par un doigt, comprenant un logement sous forme de corps doté d'un alésage, et dont une surface est sensiblement une surface de rotation; ce logement est découpé le long d'un plan décalé radialement par rapport à un plan axial de l'alésage, d'une distance telle que l'alésage restant sous-tend un angle de plus de 180°; le dispositif peut être ainsi ajusté par friction sur un élément conçu pour partiellement entourer un doigt du chirurgien et s'ajuster sur ce doigt, tout en laissant exposée, au moins partiellement, la portion ventrale de la phalange distale de ce doigt; un élément du type dé est mobile de manière à tourner dans le logement afin d'entraîner une aiguille chirurgicale de forme sensiblement semi-circulaire.
