Title
(EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT FOR MANIPULATING AND PASSING SUTURE
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL POUR MANIPULER ET FAIRE PASSER UNE SUTURE
Abstract
(EN) An instrument for manipulating and passing suture through a tissue is disclosed. The instrument includes a handle and a needle. The needle includes a lumen and terminates with a distal opening and a sharp edge surface for piercing tissue. The instrument also includes a hook, axially slideable within the needle lumen and through the needle distal opening. The hook may axially slide between a suture-locking configuration, a suture-sliding configuration and a suture release and capture configuration. The instrument may include improvements that better protect smaller and more fragile sutures.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument permettant de manipuler et de faire passer une suture à travers un tissu. L'instrument comprend un manche et une aiguille. L'aiguille comprend une lumière et se termine par une ouverture distale et une surface de bord tranchant permettant de percer un tissu. L'instrument comprend également un crochet, pouvant coulisser axialement à l'intérieur de la lumière d'aiguille et à travers l'ouverture distale de l'aiguille. Le crochet peut coulisser axialement entre une configuration de verrouillage de suture, une configuration de coulissement de suture et une configuration de libération et de capture de suture. L'instrument peut comprendre des améliorations qui permettent de mieux protéger des sutures plus petites et plus fragiles.
