Title (EN) SURGICAL CLOSURE SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE FERMETURE CHIRURGICALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device for closing an opening in a tissue includes a closure body, a fastening element, and a capture strip coupleable to the closure body such that the capture strip is moveable from a first position to a second position relative to the closure body, the capture strip including a receptacle configured to receive the fastening element when the capture strip is in the first position such that movement of the capture strip from the first position to the second position causes the fastening element to urge the closure body toward the tissue.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un dispositif pour refermer une ouverture dans un tissu, lequel dispositif comprend un corps de fermeture, un élément de fixation et une bande de capture pouvant être accouplée au corps de fermeture de sorte que la bande de capture puisse se déplacer d'une première position à une seconde position par rapport au corps de fermeture, la bande de capture comprenant un réceptacle configuré pour recevoir l'élément de fixation lorsque la bande de capture est dans la première position de sorte qu'un déplacement de la bande de capture de la première position à la seconde position amène l'élément de fixation à solliciter le corps de fermeture vers le tissu.
