Title (EN) SYSTEM, APPARATUS, AND METHOD FOR FASTENING TISSUE
(FR) SYSTEME, APPAREIL ET METHODE DE SUTURE DES TISSUS
Abstract:
(EN) A tissue fastening device includes a suture clip holder and a suture cutter. A suture clip can be releasably secured to the suture clip holder, and a suture line or lines can pass through the clip and adjacent the suture cutter. A first movement of a control handle causes the suture clip to be released from the suture clip holder, and a second movement of the control handle causes the suture cutter to cut the suture line or lines. The first movement is different from the second movement. The first movement can be rotational, with the second movement being longitudinal. Alternatively, the first movement can be longitudinal, with the second movement being rotational. The device may include a main body, an inner body, and an outer body.
(FR) Dispositif de suture des tissus incluant un support à agrafes de suture et des ciseaux coupe-fils. Une agrafe de suture peut être fixée au support, de façon amovible, et un ou plusieurs fils de suture peuvent passer à travers l’agrafe et à côté des ciseaux coupe-fils. L’activation initiale d'une poignée de commande relâche l’agrafe de suture de son support et une seconde activation de la poignée de commande entraîne la découpe du ou des fils de suture par les ciseaux coupe-fils. La première activation est différente de la seconde. La première activation peut se faire en rotation, tandis que la seconde se fait dans la longueur. Alternativement, la première activation peut se faire dans la longueur et la seconde en rotation. Le dispositif peut inclure un corps principal, un corps interne et un corps externe.
