Title (EN) SURGICAL STAPLER AND METHOD
(FR) AGRAFEUSE CHIRURGICALE ET PROCEDE ASSOCIE
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates to surgical instruments (100) including a staple anvil formed in a distal end of the surgical stapler and a staple cartridge (104) selectively receivable in a distal end of the surgical stapler and in juxtaposition relative to the staple anvil, the staple cartridge including one or more laterally spaced apart rows of staple slots (124) formed in an upper surface thereof, a plurality of surgical staples (S) disposed, one each, within the staple slots, and a staple line reinforcing system configured and adapted to augment the strength of the staple line formed by the firing of the surgical staples into body tissue, wherein the surgical stapler concomitantly drives the plurality of surgical staples through the adjacent layers of body tissue (T) to mechanically secure the body tissue and activates the reinforcing system to non-mechanically secure the adjacent layers of body tissue to one another.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à des instruments chirurgicaux comprenant une enclume formée dans une extrémité distale de l'agrafeuse chirurgicale et une cartouche d'agrafes qui peut être reçue par sélection dans une extrémité distale de l'agrafeuse chirurgicale et en juxtaposition par rapport à l'enclume, la cartouche comprenant une ou plusieurs rangées écartées latéralement de fentes d'agrafes formées dans une surface supérieure de celles-ci, d'une pluralité d'agrafes chirurgicales étant disposées, sur chaque rangée, dans les fentes pour agrafe, et un système de renfort de ligne agrafe configuré et conçu pour augmenter la résistance de la ligne agrafe formée par la cautérisation des agrafes chirurgicales dans un tissu corporel, ladite agrafeuse chirurgicale entraînant la pluralité d'agrafes chirurgicales à travers les couches adjacentes d'un tissu corporel afin de fixer mécaniquement le tissu corporel et d'actionner le système de renfort afin de fixer de manière non mécanique les couches adjacentes du tissu corporel à un autre tissu.
