(FR) MÉTHODE AND SYSTÈME DE FIXATION DE TISSUS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Fastening devices are provided that are designed to effectively close tissue as well as instruments for applying the inventive fastening devices. The devices are useful for closing tissue such as mucosa in the oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx, laryngeal surfaces, oronasopharynx, or other mucosal tissues. In particular, uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), uvulopalatal flap (UPF) technique, and tonsillectomy can be assisted using the inventive system. Embodiments also provide methods of using the fastening devices and/or instruments, and kits including the fastening devices.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des dispositifs de fixation de tissus et sur les instruments associés. Lesdits dispositifs servent à refermer des tissus tels que la muqueuse de la cavité buccale, l'oropharynx, l'hypopharynx, les surfaces du larynx, l'oronasopharynx, ou d'autres tissus muqueux. Le système de l'invention peut notamment être utile en cas d'uvulopalatopharyngoplastie (UPPP), de suture du lambeau uvulopalatal (UPF) ou d'amydalectomie. L'invention porte également sur des méthodes d'utilisation desdits dispositifs de fixation et/ou instruments, et sur les trousses associées.
