Abstract

In accordance with the present invention there is provided a surgical device for presenting a first hollow organ and a second hollow organ for creation a passageway therebetween. The surgical device includes a member, an upper pin for entering a first hollow organ, and a lower pin for entering a the second hollow organ, the pins having proximal ends attached to the member, distal ends extending therefrom and longitudinal axis extending therebetween. The device further includes a first actuator assembly coupled to the member for laterally moving the distal and proximal ends of the lower pin relative to the first member, and a second actuator coupled to the member for moving the distal ends of the upper and lower pins adjacent to one another so as to move the hollow organs close together.

Independent Claims | See all claims (11)

  1. 1. A surgical device for presenting a first hollow organ and a second hollow organ for creation a passageway therebetween, said surgical device comprising: a. a member, an upper pin for entering a first hollow organ, and a lower pin for entering a said second hollow organ, said pins having proximal ends attached to said member, distal ends extending therefrom and longitudinal axis extending therebetween; and b. a first actuator assembly coupled to said member for laterally moving said distal and proximal ends of said lower pin relative to said first member, and a second actuator coupled to said member for moving said distal ends of said upper and lower pins adjacent to one another so as to move said hollow organs close together.
  2. 11. A surgical device for attaching a first hollow organ to a second hollow organ and creating a passageway therebetween, said surgical device comprising: a. a member, an upper pin for entering a first hollow organ, and a lower pin for entering a said second hollow organ, said pins having proximal ends attached to said member, distal ends extending therefrom and longitudinal axis extending therebetween; b. a first actuator coupled to said member for laterally moving said distal and proximal ends of said lower pin relative to said member, and a second actuator coupled to said member for moving said distal ends of said upper and lower pins adjacent to one another so as to move said hollow organs close together; c. a plow movably attached to said member between said upper and lower pins, said plow is movable along said longitudinal axis of said pins to incise at least one of said hollow organs so as to create a passageway between said hollow organs; and d. a needle driver coupled to said member and a needle having a suture attached thereto, said needle driver drives said needle through said organs, about said passageway thereby attaching said hollow organs together.
