Title
(EN) METHOD OF APPLYING A BUTTRESS TO A SURGICAL STAPLER
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION D'UN RENFORT AVEC UNE AGRAFEUSE CHIRURGICALE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of applying a buttress to a surgical stapler end effector comprises positioning a buttress assembly between an anvil and a staple cartridge of the end effector. The buttress assembly comprises a buttress body and an adhesive material. The adhesive material faces either an underside of the anvil or a deck of the staple cartridge. The anvil is in an open position relative to the staple cartridge during the act of positioning the buttress assembly between the anvil and the staple cartridge. The method further comprises moving the anvil toward the staple cartridge then moving the anvil back to the open position. The buttress assembly is adhered to the underside of the anvil or the deck of the staple cartridge via the adhesive material with the anvil moved back to the open position. The adhesive material comprises a bioabsorbable polymer.
(FR)
Un procédé d'utilisation d'un renfort avec l'effecteur terminal d'une agrafeuse chirurgicale implique de positionner un ensemble de renfort entre l'enclume et la cartouche d'agrafes de l'effecteur terminal. L'ensemble de renfort comprend un corps de renfort et un matériau adhésif. Le matériau adhésif fait face soit à la face inférieure de l'enclume soit au plateau de la cartouche d'agrafes. L'enclume est en position ouverte par rapport à la cartouche d'agrafes pendant la mise en place de l'ensemble de renfort entre l'enclume et la cartouche d'agrafes. Le procédé comprend, en outre, l'étape consistant à déplacer l'enclume en direction de la cartouche d'agrafes, puis à remettre l'enclume en position ouverte. L'ensemble de renfort est collé à la face inférieure de l'enclume ou au plateau de la cartouche d'agrafes par l'intermédiaire du matériau adhésif lorsque l'enclume est remise en position ouverte. Le matériau adhésif comprend un polymère bioabsorbable.
