(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FERMETURE DE PLAIE ET TECHNIQUES
Abstract
(EN) A wound closure device that includes a first anchor (12), a second anchor (14), and a flexible member (16) that connects the first anchor (12) to the second anchor (14) is disclosed. The flexible member (16), e.g., a suture, is movably attached to the second anchor (14), such that pulling on a free end (44) of the flexible member (16) shortens a length of the flexible member (16) between the first (12) and second anchors (14).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de fermeture de plaie qui comprend une première pièce d'ancrage (12), une seconde pièce d'ancrage (14), et un élément souple (16) qui relie la première pièce d'ancrage (12) à la seconde pièce d'ancrage (14). Cet élément souple (16), par exemple une suture, est fixé détachable à la seconde pièce d'ancrage (14), de sorte qu'en tirant sur un bout libre (44) de cet élément souple (16) on le raccourcisse entre la première (12) et la seconde (14) pièce d'ancrage.
