Title (EN) ENDOSURGERY SUTURING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SUTURE ENDOCHIRURGICAL
Abstract:
(EN) A suturing device includes an elongated sheath and a suturing assembly. The elongated sheath has a working end for insertion through a working channel in an endoscope and has an inner passage. The suturing assembly includes an elongated flexible base member, a first suturing arm and a second suturing arm. The suturing arms each have a proximal end interconnected with the elongated base member and an opposite distal end. A needle receiver is disposed at the distal end of each suturing arm. The suturing arms are movable between an open position wherein the distal ends are spaced apart by a first distance and a closed position wherein the distal ends are spaced apart by a second distance less than the first distance.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de suture comprenant une gaine allongée et un ensemble de suture. La gaine allongée comprend une extrémité de travail destinée à être insérée dans un canal de travail d'endoscope, ainsi qu'un passage intérieur. L'ensemble de suture comprend un élément de base flexible allongé, un premier bras de suture et un deuxième bras de suture. Ces bras de suture comprennent chacun une extrémité proximale reliée à l'élément de base allongé et une extrémité distale opposée. Un organe de réception d'aiguille est placé à l'extrémité distale de chaque bras de suture. Les bras de suture peuvent être déplacés entre une position ouverte dans laquelle les extrémités distales sont espacées par une première distance et une position fermée dans laquelle les extrémités distales sont espacées par une deuxième distance, inférieure à la première.
