Title
(EN) EVERTER AND THREADTHROUGH SYSTEM FOR ATTACHING GRAFT VESSEL TO ANASTOMOSIS DEVICE
(FR) SYSTEME D"EVASEMENT ET D"INTRODUCTION SERVANT A ATTACHER UN VAISSEAU GREFFE SUR UN DISPOSITIF D"ANASTOMOSE
Abstract
(EN) An everter and threadthrough system useful for attaching a graft vessel to a anastomosis device which can be used to attach a graft vessel to a target vessel without the use of conventional sutures. The threadthrough system engages an end of the graft vessel and pulls the graft vessel through a deployment tool until a portion of the graft vessel extends beyond a distal end of the anastomosis device mounted on the deployment tool. The everter includes a spreading mechanism which expands the end of the graft vessel and folds the expanded end over the anastomosis device. In the case where the anastomosis device includes barbs, the everter can effect penetration of the graft vessel by the barbs. Once the graft vessel is everted over the anastomosis device, the deployment tool can be used to attach the graft vessel to a target vessel.
(FR) Ce système d"évasement et d"introduction est utile pour attacher un vaisseau greffe sur un dispositif d"anastomose pouvant servir à fixer un vaisseau greffe sur un vaisseau cible, sans emploi de sutures classiques. Ce système d"introduction pénètre dans une extrémité du vaisseau greffe et étire celui-ci par l"intermédiaire d"un outil de déploiement, jusqu"à ce qu"une portion du vaisseau greffe s"étende, sur cet outil, au-delà d"une extrémité distale du dispositif d"anastomose. Ce système d"évasement comprend un mécanisme d"étalement qui dilate l"extrémité du vaisseau greffe et replie l"extrémité dilatée au-dessus du dispositif d"anastomose. Lorsque ce dispositif d"anastomose comprend des pointes, le système d"évasement peut agir sur la pénétration des pointes dans le vaisseau greffe. Une fois que l"on a évasé le vaisseau greffe et qu"on l"a placé sur le dispositif d"anastomose, on peut utiliser l"outil de déploiement pour attacher le vaisseau greffe au vaisseau cible.
