Abstract: front page image
(EN) The invention concerns an endoscopic suturing instrument comprising an elongated hollow body (1) whereof the distal end (3) includes a curved suture needle (5) and guide means (4) for guiding said needle (5) along a curved trajectory extending laterally outside said elongated body (1) and whereof the proximal end (6) includes an actuating member (8) for moving said needle (5) relative to said guide means (4), a transverse transmission member (9) linking said actuating member (8) to said suture needle (5) through a longitudinal passage (2) running through said hollow body (1). Said hollow body (1) comprises a second longitudinal passage (10) whereof one first end stops in the proximity of the distal end (3) and occupies a position lateral to the longitudinal axis of said body (1), allowing through an endoscopic device.
(FR) Cet instrument endoscopique de suture comprend un corps creux allongé (1) dont l'extrémité distale (3) comporte une aiguille de suture courbe (5) et des moyens de guidage (4) pour guider ladite aiguille (5) selon une trajectoire courbe s'étendant latéralement hors dudit corps creux allongé (1) et dont l'extrémité proximale (6) comporte un organe d'actionnement (8) pour déplacer ladite aiguille (5) par rapport aux dits moyens de guidage (4), un organe de transmission (9) reliant ledit organe d'actionnement (8) à ladite aiguille de suture (5) à travers un canal longitudinal (2) traversant ledit corps creux (1). Ledit corps creux (1) comporte un second canal longitudinal (10) dont une première extrémité s'arrête à proximité de ladite extrémité distale (3) et occupe une position latérale à l'axe longitudinal dudit corps creux (1), pour permettre le passage d'un endoscope.
