Title (EN) TISSUE GRAFT ANCHORING
(FR) ANCRAGE POUR GREFFE DE TISSU
Abstract:
(EN) A fixation device (40) includes a member (26) defining at least two openings, and a suture (24) tied to the member by passing the suture through the at least two openings in the member to form two suture loops through which ends of the suture pass. The two suture loops are interconnected. A method of securing a tissue graft includes providing the fixation member, attaching the suture to a tissue graft, and adjusting the length of the suture between the fixation member and the tissue graft by pulling the suture.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de fixation (40) qui comprend un élément (26) définissant au moins deux ouvertures et une suture (24) liée à l'élément, par passage de la suture à travers les au moins deux ouvertures dans l'élément, afin de former deux boucles de suture à travers lesquelles passent les extrémités de la suture. Les deux boucles de suture sont interconnectées. Un procédé de fixation d'une greffe de tissu comprend la fourniture de l'élément de fixation, la fixation de la suture dans une greffe de tissu et l'ajustement de la longueur de la suture entre l'élément de fixation et la greffe de tissu, en tirant sur la suture.
