Title: (DE) Chirurgische Klammern mit komprimierbaren oder verformbaren Elementen zur Sicherung von Gewebe darin
(EN) Surgical staples having compressible or crushable members for securing tissue therein
(FR) Agrafes chirurgicales dotées d'éléments compressibles ou écrasables pour y fixer les tissus
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A staple having a crown (1471) and first and second deformable members (1466, 1467) extending from the crown. In at least one embodiment, the staple further includes a base (1468) connecting the first and second deformable members where the base is not entirely co-planar with the first and second deformable members. The crown can be overmolded onto, or attached to, the base and provide a larger and/or more stable tissue-contacting surface for supporting the tissue captured by the staple. As a result, the possibility of the staple being pulled through the tissue and/or the tissue tearing within or around the staple is reduced.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une agrafe comportant une couronne (1302), une patte déformable (1344) s'étendant depuis la couronne et un ressort (1352) s'étendant depuis la couronne et configuré pour comprimer le tissu entre le ressort et l'élément déformable. En raison de la flexibilité du ressort, l'agrafe peut s'adapter à une large gamme d'épaisseurs de tissu tout en comprimant toujours le tissu capturé dans celle-ci. Il en résulte qu'un concept unique d'agrafes peut être utilisé dans une grande diversité d'actes chirurgicaux réduisant ainsi la quantité de concepts d'agrafes dont doit s'équiper le chirurgien. Dans au moins un mode de réalisation, l'agrafe comprend un élément déformable qui peut comprendre une première partie plastiquement déformable et une seconde partie élastiquement déformable.
