Title (EN) COUPLING SYSTEM, APPLICATOR TOOL, ATTACHMENT RING AND METHOD FOR CONNECTING A CONDUIT TO BIOLOGICAL TISSUE
(FR) SYSTÈME D'ACCOUPLEMENT, OUTIL APPLICATEUR, BAGUE DE FIXATION ET PROCÉDÉ DE CONNEXION D'UN CONDUIT SUR DU TISSU BIOLOGIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A coupling system includes an applicator tool and an attachment ring mounted on the applicator tool. Clips are contained within the applicator tool and are deployed through the attachment ring in order to anchor the attachment ring to biological tissue. When deployed, tips of the clips follow a curved trajectory through an annular cuff of the attachment ring and through the underlying tissue. The tips loop back out of the tissue and to a location where they are later trapped or clamped by the attachment ring. While the tips are trapped or clamped, the applicator tool cinches the clips by pulling rear segments of the clips. Thereafter, the applicator tool disconnects from the attachment ring which remains anchored to the tissue and serves as a coupling for a cannula. The cannula can have movable lock members that secure it to the attachment ring.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système d'accouplement comprenant un outil applicateur et une bague de fixation montée sur l'outil applicateur. Des pinces se trouvent à l'intérieur de l'outil applicateur et sont déployées au travers de la bague de fixation à des fins d'ancrage de la bague de fixation sur du tissu biologique. Après le déploiement, les bouts des pinces suivent une trajectoire courbe au travers d'un manchon annulaire de la bague de fixation et au travers du tissu sous-jacent. Les bouts reviennent en boucle hors du tissu et jusqu'à un lieu où ils sont par la suite coincés ou serrés par la bague de fixation. Quand les bouts sont coincés ou serrés, l'outil applicateur s'ajuste sur les pinces en tirant sur des segments arrière des pinces. Par la suite, l'outil applicateur se sépare de la bague de fixation qui reste ancrée sur le tissu et sert d'accouplement pour une canule. La canule peut avoir des éléments de verrouillage mobiles qui l'assujettissent à la bague de fixation.
