Coloplast A/S : "System and a Method for Surgical Suture Fixation" in Patent Application Approval Process

05/28/2015 | 02:31pm US/Eastern

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- A patent application by the inventors Deitch, Sarah J. (Minneapolis, MN); Witzmann, Michael M. (Shoreview, MN), filed on November 8, 2013, was made available online on May 21, 2015, according to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews correspondents.

This patent application is assigned to Coloplast A/S.

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Intracorporeal suturing of tissue during surgery presents challenges to the surgeon in that the surgeon is called upon to manipulate suturing instruments within the confines of a relatively small incision formed in the patient's body. In some cases, the surgeon is unable to see the suture site. In such a case, the surgeon will digitally palpate with a finger to locate a landmark within the intracorporeal site, and then deliver the suture at or near the landmark. Tying of the suture inside the patient at the intracorporeal site can be challenging since the surgeon is unable to see the site.

"Improved suturing instruments and improved methods of delivering sutures would be welcomed by the surgical staff."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "One aspect provides a surgical suture fixation system that includes a delivery guide, an anchor, a movable anchor deployment component and a spring mechanism provided between the delivery guide and the anchor deployment component. The delivery guide includes a conduit that guides the anchor deployment component. The conduit has a channel formed through at least a part of its sidewall. The anchor has a length of suture including a fixation device (or engagement slider) attached to it. The length of suture extends through the channel in the delivery and the fixation device is provided externally of the delivery guide. The anchor deployment component is configured to receive the anchor and to deliver the anchor into a tissue location. The system is adapted to fixing the suture to a tissue location with the anchor for supporting an implantable support material in a patient.

"One aspect provides a method of fixing surgical suture to tissue. The method includes loading an anchor having a length of suture attached thereto in an anchor deployment component. The method includes identifying a tissue location on the sacrospinous ligament, the arcus tendenius ligament or the periosteum covering the pubic bone with a finger. The method includes locating a delivery guide associated with the anchor deployment component alongside the finger. The method includes delivering the anchor into the tissue location by moving the anchor deployment component through the delivery guide in a distal direction. The method includes compressing a spring between the delivery guide and the anchor deployment component.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
