Title (EN) DEVICES AND METHODS FOR MANIPULATION OF ORGAN TISSUE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCEDES DE MANIPULATION DE TISSU D'ORGANE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides techniques for holding a moving organ, such as a beating heart (10). A manipulation device (12) that holds the organ includes an outer shell (16) and an inner shell (14). Vacuum pressure applied to the outer shell draws the organ into the inner shell. The vacuum pressure is communicated to the inner shell chamber via one or more apertures (58) in the inner shell. The inner shell may have a structure and a texture that enhances the hold on the organ, and the manipulation device may also include a skirt-like member (18) to improve the seal between the manipulation device and the organ.
(FR)L'invention concerne des techniques servant à maintenir un organe en mouvement, tel qu'un coeur (10) qui bat. Un dispositif de manipulation (12) maintenant l'organe comprend une enveloppe (16) extérieure et une enveloppe (14) intérieure. Une pression négative appliquée sur l'enveloppe extérieure permet d'aspirer l'organe dans l'enveloppe intérieure. La pression négative est transmise à la chambre de l'enveloppe intérieure par une ou plusieurs ouvertures (58) de l'enveloppe intérieure. L'enveloppe intérieure peut présenter une structure et une texture renforçant la préhension de l'organe, et le dispositif de manipulation peut aussi comprendre un élément (18) du type jupe pour améliorer l'adhérence entre le dispositif de manipulation et l'organe.
