Title (EN) TISSUE THICKNESS COMPENSATOR COMPRISING STRUCTURE TO PRODUCE A RESILIENT LOAD
(FR) COMPENSATEUR D'ÉPAISSEUR DE TISSU COMPRENANT UNE STRUCTURE POUR PRODUIRE UNE CHARGE ÉLASTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A fastener cartridge assembly (30000) for an end effector of a surgical instrument can comprise a cartridge body (20070), a deformable tube (3000 31080, 33080, 34080, 35080, 36080, 38080, 39080, 40080, 41080, 41180, 42080, 43080, 44080, 45080, 47080, 48080), and a fastener moveable between an initial position and a fired position. The deformable tube can be longitudinally positioned along a length of the cartridge body. When the fastener is moved to the fired position, the fastener can compress a portion of the deformable tube. The deformable tube can comprise a resilient material such that deformation of the deformable tube generates a restoring force. The deformable tube can comprise a lattice of strands (30092, 0090, 34090, 34092, 35092, 36092, 36080, 37092) woven together to form a tube wall. Further, the deformable tube can be bioabsorbable and can hold a therapeutic agent. The fastener cartridge assembly can comprise multiple, substantially parallel deformable tubes positioned side-by-side and / or within each other.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble cartouche d'organe de fixation pour un effecteur terminal d'un instrument chirurgical, qui peut comprendre un corps de cartouche, un tube déformable et un organe de fixation pouvant se déplacer entre une position initiale et une position déclenchée. Le tube déformable peut être positionné longitudinalement le long d'une longueur du corps de cartouche. Lorsque l'organe de fixation est déplacé vers la position déclenchée, l'organe de fixation peut comprimer une partie du tube déformable. Le tube déformable peut comprendre un matériau élastique de telle sorte que la déformation du tube déformable génère une force de rappel. Le tube déformable peut comprendre un treillis de fils tissés ensemble pour former une paroi de tube. En outre, le tube déformable peut être bioabsorbable et peut contenir un agent thérapeutique. L'ensemble cartouche d'organe de fixation peut comprendre de multiples tubes déformables sensiblement parallèles positionnés côte à côte et/ou les uns à l'intérieur des autres.
