Abstract
(EN)
A surgical instrument for suturing soft tissue is disclosed. The surgical instrument is capable of probing tissue, and preferably provides tactile feedback concerning the condition of the tissue. The instrument can then be used to pass and retrieve a suture without the need for an additional suture retrieval tool.

L'invention concerne un instrument chirurgical de souture de tissus mous, qui peut sonder un tissu et, de préférence, renvoyer une perception tactile concernant l'état du tissu. L'instrument peut alors être utilisé pour introduire ou extraire un fil sans nécessité de recourir à un outil d'extraction de fil supplémentaire.
