Title (EN) TUNNEL TOOL FOR SOFT TISSUE
(FR) OUTIL DE TUNNEL POUR TISSU OUATÉ
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device (100) for creating a tunnel through soft tissue, comprises an elongated insertion member including a lumen extending therethrough to a distal opening, the elongated insertion member being sized to be inserted into the body via an opening of no more than 35 mm diameter and a tunneling member (108) received in the lumen for movement between an insertion configuration in which a tissue penetrating distal tip is received within the lumen and a tunneling configuration in which the distal tip extends distally from the distal opening by a desired distance in combination with a handle (104) coupled to a proximal end of the insertion member, the handle remaining outside the body and including a first actuator (106) for moving the tunneling member between the insertion and tunneling configurations.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif (100) pour créer un tunnel à travers un tissu ouaté, comprenant un élément d'insertion allongé comprenant une lumière s'étendant au travers vers une couverture distale, l'élément d'insertion allongé étant dimensionné pour être inséré dans le corps via une ouverture pas plus grande que 35 mm de diamètre et un élément de tunnel (108) reçu dans la lumière pour déplacement entre une configuration d'insertion dans laquelle une pointe distale pénétrant le tissu est reçue dans la lumière, et une configuration de tunnel dans laquelle la pointe distale s'étend de manière distale depuis l'ouverture distale sur une distance souhaitée en combinaison avec un manchon (104) couplé à une extrémité proximale de l'élément d'insertion, le manchon restant à l'extérieur du corps et comprenant un premier actionneur (106) pour déplacer l'élément de tunnel entre les configurations d'insertion et de tunnel.
