Title (EN) ANASTOMOSIS INSTRUMENT AND METHOD FOR PERFORMING SAME
(FR) INSTRUMENT ET PROCÉDÉ POUR ANASTOMOSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An aortic punch for creating an aortotomy in a wall of a luminal structure. The aortic punch includes a housing having distal and proximal ends, first and second plungers, a first return spring and a cutting assembly. The first plunger is movable relative to the housing to expose a barb from the distal end of the housing for piercing and catching the wall of the luminal structure. The first return spring biases the barb proximally toward the distal end of the housing such that the barb pulls the wall of the luminal structure into contact with the cutting assembly. The present disclosure also relates to a method of forming an aortotomy in a luminal structure.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un perforateur aortique pour l'aortotomisation de la paroi d'une structure luminale. Le perforateur aortique comprend un logement aux extrémités distales et proximales, deux pistons, un premier ressort de rappel, et un ensemble coupant. Le premier piston, mobile par rapport au logement de façon, sert à dégager une aspérité partant de l'extrémité distale du logement aux fins de percer et prendre la paroi de la structure luminale. Le premier ressort de rappel agit sur l'aspérité en la rappelant proximalement vers l'extrémité distale du logement de façon que l'aspérité, en tira sur la paroi de la structure luminale, l'amène au contact de l'ensemble coupant. La présente invention concerne un procédé d'aortotomisation dans une structure luminale.
