Title (EN) DEVICES AND METHODS FOR SUTURE PLACEMENT
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS POUR PLACEMENT DE SUTURE
Abstract:
(EN) A suturing device includes an elongate body, an actuator, and a curved needle holder. The elongate body includes a distal end portion extending along a longitudinal axis. The actuator is operable between a first operating position and a second operating position. The curved needle holder extends away from the distal end portion or is provided as part of the distal end portion of the elongate body. The curved needle holder includes a distal end section having a distal-most tip, and defines a curved needle passage and a distal opening adjacent the distal-most tip. A distance measured parallel with the longitudinal axis between where the curved needle holder begins to curve away from the longitudinal axis to either where the elongate body begins to curve away from the longitudinal axis or where the elongate body connects with a handle can be between about 10 cm to about 20 cm. Also, the distal-most tip can be offset from the longitudinal axis in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal axis an offset distance less than about 7 mm.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de suture qui comprend un corps allongé, un actionneur et un support d'aiguille incurvé. Le corps allongé comprend une partie extrémité distale s'étendant le long d'un axe longitudinal. L'actionneur peut fonctionner entre une première position de fonctionnement et une seconde position de fonctionnement. Le support d'aiguille incurvé s'étend à l'opposé de la partie extrémité distale ou fait partie de la partie extrémité distale du corps allongé. Le support d'aiguille incurvé comprend une section d'extrémité distale ayant la pointe la plus distale, et définit un passage d'aiguille incurvé et une ouverture distale adjacente à la pointe la plus distale. Une distance mesurée parallèlement à l'axe longitudinal, entre l'endroit où le support d'aiguille incurvé commence à s'incurver à l'opposé de l'axe longitudinal et l'endroit où le corps allongé commence à s'incurver à l'opposé de l'axe longitudinal ou le corps allongé est relié à une poignée, peut être comprise entre environ 10 cm et environ 20 cm. De même, la pointe la plus distale peut être décalée par rapport à l'axe longitudinal dans une direction perpendiculaire à l'axe longitudinal d'une distance de décalage inférieure à environ 7 mm.
