Title (EN) SUTURE FASTENER HAVING SPACED-APART LAYERS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FIXATION DE SUTURE AYANT DES COUCHES ESPACÉES
Abstract:
(EN) In one embodiment, a multi-layer suture fastener that includes a generally disc-shaped body defining a plurality of axially spaced-apart layers. Each layer can include an inner axial surface and an outer axial surface. A suture opening can extend from the inner axial surface to the outer axial surface of each layer. The suture openings can have an open configuration and a closed configuration. One or more lines of suture can be passed through the suture openings when in the open configuration. The suture openings can be placed in the closed configuration. In the closed configuration, the one or more lines of suture can be restricted by radial surfaces of the suture opening from sliding through the suture openings in at least one longitudinal direction of the one or more lines of suture.
(FR) Dans un mode de réalisation, un dispositif de fixation de suture multicouches selon la présente invention comprend un corps généralement en forme de disque définissant une pluralité de couches espacées axialement. Chaque couche peut comprendre une surface axiale interne et une surface axiale externe. Une ouverture de suture peut s'étendre de la surface axiale interne à la surface axiale externe de chaque couche. Les ouvertures de suture peuvent avoir une configuration ouverte et une configuration fermée. Une ou plusieurs lignes de suture peuvent être passées à travers les ouvertures de suture lorsqu'elles sont dans la configuration ouverte. Les ouvertures de suture peuvent être placées dans la configuration fermée. Dans la configuration fermée, l'au moins une ligne de suture peut être empêchée par des surfaces radiales de l'ouverture de suture de glisser à travers les ouvertures de suture dans au moins une direction longitudinale de l'au moins une ligne de suture.
