Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR SUTURELESSLY CONNECTING A CONDUIT TO A HOLLOW ORGAN
(FR) appareil et procédé pour raccorder sans SUTURE un tube à un organe creux
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to an apparatus and method for securing a connector conduit to a hollow organ. The method comprises forming a hole in a wall of the organ; inserting a connector conduit through the hole in the wall of the organ until a flange element comes into contact with the wall of the organ, the flange element being positioned on the connector conduit; and engaging a retention means with the wall of the organ to prevent movement of the connector conduit relative to the wall of the organ, the retention means being positioned on the connector conduit. Exemplary retaining means include a plurality of retaining pins positioned circumferentially around the connector conduit, a plurality of prongs positioned circumferentially around the connector conduit, a balloon positioned on the connector conduit, a torsion spring positioned on the connector conduit, a spiral spring positioned on the connector conduit, or combinations thereof.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé pour fixer un tube de raccordement sur un organe creux. Le procédé comprend les étapes consistant à former un orifice dans une paroi de l'organe ; inserer un tube de raccordement à travers l'orifice dans la paroi de l'organe jusqu'à ce qu'un élément de bride vienne en contact avec la paroi de l'organe, l'élément de bride étant positionné sur le tube de raccordement ; et mettre en contact un moyen de rétention avec la paroi de l'organe pour empêcher un mouvement du tube de raccordement par rapport à la paroi de l'organe, le moyen de rétention étant positionné sur le tube de raccordement. Des exemples de moyens de rétention comprennent une pluralité de broches de rétention positionnées de manière circonférentielle autour du tube de raccordement, une pluralité de pattes positionnées de manière circonférentielle autour du tube de raccordement, un ballon positionné sur le tube de raccordement, un ressort de torsion positionné sur le tube de raccordement, un ressort spiral positionné sur le tube de raccordement ou des combinaisons de ceux-ci.
