Title (EN) SUTURE ANCHOR WITH MICROTHREADS AND SUTURE ANCHOR DRIVE WITH NEEDLE ATTACHMENT
(FR) ANCRAGE DE SUTURE AVEC MICROFILETS ET DISPOSITIF D’ENTRAÎNEMENT D’ANCRAGE DE SUTURE AVEC FIXATION D’AIGUILLE
Abstract:
(EN) A suture anchor is described. The suture anchor includes an elongate anchor body having a proximal end and a distal end, at least one suture secured within the anchor body, at least one major thread, and at least two microthreads occupying the space between each major thread. An anchor driver is also described. The anchor driver is capable of accepting various attachments such that an operator can change the functionality of the driver based on the type of attachment in use, such as a needle attachment. A method of attaching soft tissue to bone in a subject is also described. The method includes the steps of securing a suture anchor into bone with the anchor driver, joining a needle attachment with the anchor driver, passing at least one suture through soft tissue using the needle attachment, and tying the at least one suture against the soft tissue to secure the soft tissue to the bone.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ancrage de suture. L’ancrage de suture comprend un corps d’ancrage allongé ayant une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale, au moins une suture fixée dans le corps d’ancrage, au moins un filet majeur, et au moins deux microfilets occupant l’espace entre chaque filet majeur. L’invention concerne en outre un dispositif d’entraînement d’ancrage. Le dispositif d’entraînement d’ancrage est capable d’accepter différentes fixations de sorte qu’un opérateur puisse modifier la fonctionnalité du dispositif d’entraînement sur la base du type de fixation utilisé, tel qu’une fixation d’aiguille. L’invention concerne en outre un procédé de fixation de tissu mou à un os chez un sujet. Le procédé comprend les étapes de fixation d’un ancrage de suture dans un os avec le dispositif d’entraînement d’ancrage, d'assemblage d’une fixation d’aiguille avec le dispositif d’entraînement d’ancrage, de passage d’au moins une suture à travers un tissu mou au moyen de la fixation d’aiguille, et de nouage de l’au moins une suture contre le tissu mou pour fixer le tissu mou à l’os.
