Title (EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR USE IN TISSUE APPROXIMATION AND FIXATION
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF DE RAPPROCHEMENT ET DE FIXATION DE TISSUS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and devices for use in tissue approximation and fixation are described herein. The present invention provides, in part, methods and devices for acquiring tissue folds from the anterior and posterior portions of a hollow body organ, e.g., a stomach, positioning the tissue folds for affixing within a fixation zone of the stomach, preferably to create a pouch or partition below the esophagus, and fastening the tissue folds such that a tissue bridge forms excluding the pouch from the greater stomach cavity. The present invention further provides devices for performing a transoral, endoscopic hollow organ division, including a tissue acquisition device (120) capable of acquiring the desired tissue, and a fastening element to secure the outer layers of the acquired tissue such that the desired healing response is achieved.
(FR)L'invention se rapporte à des procédés et à des dispositifs de rapprochement et de fixation de tissus. Cette invention concerne en particulier des procédés et des dispositifs permettant d'acquérir des plis de tissu provenant des parties antérieure et postérieure d'un organe à corps creux tel qu'un estomac, de positionner ces plis de tissu pour les fixer dans une zone de fixation de l'estomac, de préférence pour créer une poche ou une cloison en dessous de l'oesophage, et d'attacher lesdits plis de tissu de façon à former un pont tissulaire qui exclut ladite poche de la cavité stomacale plus grande. La présente invention se rapporte en outre à des dispositifs servant à réaliser une division d'organe creux par voie transorale endoscopique. Parmi ces dispositifs figurent un dispositif d'acquisition tissulaire permettant d'acquérir le tissu souhaité, un dispositif tendeur servant à positionner le tissu acquis, ainsi qu'un élément de fixation permettant de fixer les couches extérieures du tissu acquis de façon à entraîner la réaction thérapeutique souhaitée.
