Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR TISSUE ADHESION
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR L’ADHÉRENCE D’UN TISSU
Abstract:
(EN) An array of a plurality of shape memory material microposts (12) have a proximal end (10) configured to be secured to a substrate (14) with a tissue penetrating distal end (18). The microposts further have a deployment state with the microposts (12) in a substantially straightened configuration with a substantially smooth and continuous outer surface which is substantially parallel to adjacent microposts and an engaged state wherein at least a section of the microposts (12') assume a configuration that is not substantially parallel to adjacent microposts or is not substantially straight with a substantially smooth and continuous outer surface so as to mechanically capture tissue adjacent thereto.
(FR) Un ensemble parmi une pluralité de micro-montants en matériau à mémoire de forme (12) présente une extrémité proximale (10) configurée pour être fixée à un substrat (14) doté d’une extrémité distale pénétrant dans le tissu (18). Les micro-montants présentent en outre un état de déploiement avec les micro-montants (12) dans une configuration sensiblement dressée présentant une surface extérieure sensiblement douce et continue qui est sensiblement parallèle aux micro-montants adjacents et un état inséré dans lequel au moins une section des micro-montants (12') occupe une configuration qui n’est pas sensiblement parallèle aux micro-montants adjacents ou n’est pas sensiblement rectiligne avec une surface extérieure sensiblement douce et continue de manière à capturer mécaniquement le tissue adjacent à celle-ci.
