Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to devices, systems, and methods for percutaneously suturing biological material, such as a patient's tissues. In one embodiment, a suturing device includes first (140) and second (142) tissue engaging members connected to one another by a first interconnecting member (144). In another embodiment, systems and methods are provided for forming holes through two overlapping layers (60, 62) of tissue. Subsequent to forming holes through the two layers of tissue, the suturing device is positioned through the holes to join or bring into contact the two layers of overlapping tissue.
(FR)L'invention concerne des dispositifs, des systèmes et des méthodes permettant de suturer par voie percutanée une matière vivante, telle que les tissus d'un patient. Dans un mode de réalisation, un dispositif de suture comprend un premier (140) et un second (142) élément de fixation reliés l'un à l'autre par un premier élément de couplage (144). Dans un autre mode de réalisation, l'invention concerne des systèmes et des méthodes permettant de former des orifices à travers deux couches chevauchantes (60, 62) de tissu. Après la formation des orifices à travers les deux couches de tissu, le dispositif de suture est placé dans les orifices pour joindre ou mettre en contact les deux couches chevauchantes de tissu.
