Title (EN) SELF-RETAINING SUTURES WITH BI-DIRECTIONAL RETAINERS OR UNI-DIRECTIONAL RETAINERS
(FR) SUTURES A AUTO-RETENUE POURVUES D’ELEMENTS DE RETENUE BIDIRECTIONNELS OU UNIDIRECTIONNELS
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Provided herein are sutures for use in a procedure applied to tissue, and methods for forming such sutures. Some sutures include bi-directional retainers, each of which can be deployed in two directions, but once deployed in one direction, resist motion in the opposite direction. Other sutures include uni-directional retainers that are conical in shape, and include tissue engaging protrusions that extend from edges and/or angled walls of the conical retainers.
(FR) L’invention concerne des sutures destinées à être utilisées dans une procédure appliquée à un tissu, ainsi que des méthodes de formation de sutures. Certaines sutures comprennent des éléments de retenue bidirectionnels, chaque élément pouvant être déployé dans deux directions et, une fois déployé dans une direction, opposer une résistance à un mouvement dans la direction opposée. D’autres sutures comprennent des éléments de retenue unidirectionnels de forme conique, des éléments saillants de contact avec le tissu s’étendant des bords et/ou des parois à angles de ces éléments de retenue coniques.
