Abstract
(EN)
A surgical tack (100) is disclosed for securing a surgical mesh to body tissue. The tack (100) includes a pair of legs (102) and an arcuate cross-member (104). A surgical tack applier (200) is also disclosed, for applying the surgical tack (100). The applier (200) includes an elongate tubular portion (208) having a jacket (214) with a main channel (215) and a pair of longitudinally extending sub channels (220). A rotatable drive rod (218) having a helical thread (224) is coupled to the applier (200), and the sub channels (220) receive the legs (102) of the tack (100). The helical thread (224) receives the arcuate cross-member (104) of the surgical tack (100). Rotation of the drive rod (218) drives the tack (100) from he distal end of the applier(200).

L'invention concerne un clou chirurgical (100) conçu pour fixer un filet chirurgical à un tissu du corps. Ledit clou (100) comprend une paire de branches (102) et un élément transversal arqué (104). Un applicateur de clou chirurgical (200) conçu pour appliquer ledit clou (100) est également décrit. L'applicateur (200) comprend une partie tubulaire allongée (208) dotée d'une enveloppe (214) possédant un canal principal (215) et une paire de sous-canaux (220) s'étendant dans le sens longitudinal. Une tige d'entraînement rotative (218) à filet hélicoïdal (224) est couplée à l'applicateur (200) et les sous-canaux (220) reçoivent les branches (102) du clou (100). Le filet hélicoïdal (224) reçoit l'élément transversal arqué (104) du clou chirurgical (100). La rotation de la tige d'entraînement (218) entraîne le clou (100) depuis l'extrémité distale de l'applicateur (200).
