Title (EN) TERMINATION DEVICES AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS D'ARRÊT ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Devices and methods for locking and/or cutting tethers during a tissue modification procedure are described. In some variations, a tether may be used to tighten tissue by bringing two pieces or sections of the tissue together. The tether, which may be under tension, may be locked to maintain the tension, and excess tether may be severed, using one or more of the devices and/or methods. The devices and/or methods may be used, for example, in minimally invasive procedures.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés de verouillage et/ou de découpe d'ancrages pendant une opération de modification de tissus. Dans certaines variantes, un ancrage peut être utilisé pour serrer un tissu en rapprochant deux morceaux ou parties du tissu. L'ancrage, qui peut être sous tension, peut être verrouillé de manière à maintenir la tension et l'excédent d'ancrage peut être découpé en utilisant un ou plusieurs des dispositifs et/ou procédés. Les dispositifs et/ou procédés peuvent être utilisés par exemple dans des opérations minimalement invasives.
