Title
(EN) SURGICAL STAPLER
(FR) AGRAFEUSE CHIRURGICALE
Abstract
(EN)
A surgical stapler comprises a hollow shaft (10) and a tube (92) slidable axially within the shaft between a forward position wherein one end (96) of the tube projects beyond a free end of the shaft to enter a puncture site in a blood vessel and a rearward position wherein the end of the locator tube is retracted within the shaft. A surgical staple (40) straddles the tube (92) and is slidable thereon forwardly towards an anvil (92) against which the staple may be deformed to staple together the opposite edges of the puncture site. A cam mechanism drives the staple forwardly alona the tube (92) into deforming engagement with the anvil and at the same time retracts the tube into the shaft in time to allow the legs of the staple to close onto the puncture site.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une agrafeuse chirurgicale comprenant un arbre creux (10) et un tube (92) pouvant glisser axialement à l'intérieur de cet arbre entre une position d'avance, dans laquelle une extrémité (96) du tube s'étend au delà d'une extrémité libre de l'arbre pour s'introduire à travers un site de ponction dans un vaisseau sanguin, et une position de retour, dans laquelle l'extrémité du tube de localisation se rétracte à l'intérieur de l'arbre. Une agrafe chirurgicale (40) enjambe le tube (92) et peut glisser sur ce tube en avant vers une enclume (92) contre laquelle cette agrafe peut être déformée de manière à agrafer ensemble les bords opposés du site de ponction. Un mécanisme à came commande l'agrafe vers l'avant le long du tube (92) de sorte à l'engager vers l'enclume pour déformation et, dans un même temps, entraîne la rétractation du tube dans l'arbre pour permettre aux pattes de l'agrafe de se plier sur le site de ponction.
