A61F 2/00
US Classification:
600 30, 600 37
Abstract:
A pelvic implant having a central support portion, and a plurality of extension members, is provided. The extension members can be positioned or extend from the central support portion in opposing pairs. The extension members are generally attached to the central support portion at respective junctions (e. g. , via rivets), and sheaths or covers can be employed to cover at least a length or portion of the extension members. Further, one or more spanning members can extend from a first of the opposed and paired extensions to the opposing extension, e. g. , under or across the central portion and the respective junctions to provide additional tensile strength for the implant during deployment or implantation.

US Patent:
20060287658, Dec 21, 2006
Filed:
Jun 6, 2006
Appl. No.:
11/422584
Inventors:
James Mujwid - Crystal MN,
Kevin Arnal - Excelsior MN,
Robert Lund - St. Michael MN,
Brian Price - Edina MN,
James Cox - North Corcoran MN,
Kevin Guenther - Carver MN,
Jason Westrum - St. Louis Park MN,
Mark Bouchier - Lakeville MN,
International Classification:
A61B 17/04
US Classification:
606144000
Abstract:
A system for ligating a uterine artery in a patient generally includes a suture transfer tool, suture transfer darts, and one or more sutures. The suture transfer tool includes an upper jaw that is pivotally joined to a lower jaw. The lower jaw of the tool includes a number of suture capturing pins. The suture transfer darts are configured to be tissue piercing and are positionable within the suture capturing pins. Each end of the suture is connected to a suture transfer dart. When operating the tool, the suture transfer darts pierce through the tissue to either side of a patient's cardinal ligament, which contains the uterine artery, and simultaneously present an end of the suture to either side of the cardinal ligament. As such, the suture is in an open loop configuration about the cardinal ligament and can be tied tight to the ligament to occlude the uterine artery.
