Title
(EN) SUCTION ATTACHMENT OF AN ADJUNCT TO A SURGICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) FIXATION PAR ASPIRATION D'UN AUXILIAIRE À UN INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL
Abstract
(EN) Adjuncts for use with surgical instruments, such as staplers, are provided. In one embodiment, an adjunct can include a plurality of suction members configured to attach the adjunct to an end effector jaw of a surgical stapler using a suction force. The suction members can be configured to generate the suction force when compressed. The suction members can be further configured to release the suction force to decouple the adjunct from the end effector jaw, permitting deployment of the adjunct at a treatment site. In certain embodiments, the suction members can include a plurality of air pockets formed in the bulk of the adjunct or within protrusions extending outward from a surface of the adjunct. The air pockets can be in communication with corresponding openings allowing air to escape the air pockets when compressed.
(FR) L'invention concerne des auxiliaires destinés à être utilisés avec des instruments chirurgicaux, tels que des agrafeuses. Dans un mode de réalisation, un auxiliaire peut comprendre une pluralité d'éléments d'aspiration configurés pour fixer l'auxiliaire à une mâchoire d'effecteur terminal d'une agrafeuse chirurgicale à l'aide d'une force d'aspiration. Les éléments d'aspiration peuvent être configurés pour générer la force d'aspiration lorsqu'ils sont comprimés. Les éléments d'aspiration peuvent en outre être configurés pour libérer la force d'aspiration afin de découpler l'auxiliaire de la mâchoire d'effecteur terminal, permettant le déploiement de l'auxiliaire au niveau d'un site de traitement. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les éléments d'aspiration peuvent comprendre une pluralité de poches d'air formées dans la masse de l'auxiliaire ou dans des saillies s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir d'une surface de l'auxiliaire. Les poches d'air peuvent être en communication avec des ouvertures correspondantes permettant à l'air de s'échapper des poches d'air lorsqu'il est comprimé.
