Title
(EN) SELECTIVELY ORIENTABLE IMPLANTABLE FASTENER CARTRIDGE
(FR) CARTOUCHE D'ÉLÉMENT DE FIXATION IMPLANTABLE POUVANT ÊTRE ORIENTÉE DE MANIÈRE SÉLECTIVE
Abstract
(EN) A fastener cartridge comprises a compressible, collapsible, and/or crushable cartridge body and fasteners embedded within the cartridge body which can be utilized to fasten tissue. In use, the fastener cartridge can be positioned in a first jaw of a surgical fastening device, wherein the first jaw can be positioned opposite a second jaw, or anvil. The anvil can be engaged with the fastener cartridge to compress, collapse, and/or crush the cartridge body and deform, or otherwise deploy, the fasteners contained therein. As the fasteners are deformed or deployed, the fasteners can capture at least a portion of the cartridge body therein along with at least a portion of the tissue being fastened. The fastener cartridge and/or the first jaw can comprise retention features which allow the fastener cartridge to be selectively inserted into the first jaw in a first orientation or a second orientation.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une cartouche d'élément de fixation qui comporte un corps de cartouche compressible, pliable et/ou écrasable et des éléments de fixation incorporés à l'intérieur du corps de cartouche, qui peuvent être utilisés pour attacher un tissu. En utilisation, la cartouche d'élément de fixation peut être positionnée dans une première mâchoire d'un dispositif de fixation chirurgical, la première mâchoire pouvant être positionnée à l'opposé d'une seconde mâchoire, ou dans une enclume. L'enclume peut venir en prise avec la cartouche d'élément de fixation pour comprimer, plier et/ou écraser le corps de cartouche et déformer, ou sinon déployer, les éléments de fixation contenus dans celui-ci. Au fur et à mesure que les éléments de fixation sont déformés ou déployés, les éléments de fixation peuvent capturer au moins une partie du corps de cartouche dans ceux-ci conjointement avec au moins une partie du tissu devant être attaché. La cartouche d'élément de fixation et/ou la première mâchoire peuvent comporter des caractéristiques de retenue qui permettent à la cartouche d'élément de fixation d'être introduite de manière sélective dans la première mâchoire selon une première orientation ou une seconde orientation.
