Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CLOSING A FISSURE IN THE ANNULUS OF AN INTERVERTEBRAL DISC
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE FERMETURE D'UNE FISSURE DANS L'ANNEAU D'UN DISQUE INTERVERTÉBRAL
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus for attaching a suture to an object, the apparatus comprising: an anchor comprising a body having a distal end and a proximal end, and a vertical bore extending through the body substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the body; wherein the anchor further comprises a recess formed on one side of the body and a U-shaped slot formed on the opposing side of the body, whereby to form a flexible finger extending distally within the body, and further wherein the distal end of the finger is spaced from an opposing portion of the body; and wherein at least one of the flexible finger and the body comprises a cutout extending therethrough, with the cutout cooperating with the U-shaped slot and the recess so as to together form a suture loading hole extending through the body, with the suture loading hole being sized to receive a suture therein.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil pour fixer une suture à un objet, l'appareil comprenant : un ancrage comprenant un corps ayant une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale, et un alésage vertical s'étendant à travers le corps sensiblement perpendiculaire à l'axe longitudinal du corps ; l'ancrage comprenant en outre un évidement formé sur un côté du corps et une fente en forme d'U formée sur le côté opposé du corps, de sorte à former un doigt flexible s'étendant de façon distale à l'intérieur du corps, et en outre l'extrémité distale du doigt étant espacée d'une partie opposée du corps ; et au moins l'un du doigt flexible et du corps comprenant une découpe s'étendant à travers celui-ci, la découpe coopérant avec la fente en forme d'U et l'évidement de façon à former ensemble un trou de chargement de suture s'étendant à travers le corps, le trou de chargement de suture étant dimensionné pour recevoir une suture à l'intérieur de celui-ci.
