Клин 11 с ножом 12 выполнен в виде вилки, причем нож 12 расположен над рабочей частью 14 клина 11 на рассто нии, соответствующем размерам перемычки Surgical sschivayush, s apparatus for applying linear seams comprises the bracket housing 1 with considerable bracket store 2, wherein a through longitudinal groove 3 and two rows 4 and 5 shaped grooves under bracket 6 disposed therein sliders 7, hard body 8 with holes 9 for knee braces 6, gap setting mechanism 10 and the wedge 20 stitching 11 with a knife 12, each row 4 olkatel crosspiece 13 is combined with a number of pusher 5. wedge 11 with the knife 12 is designed as a fork, and a knife 12 located above the working portion 14 the wedge 11 at a distance corresponding to the size of the jumper 13 объединенных толкателей р дов 4 и 5. 13 integrated rows of pushers 4 and 5.

Скобочный корпус 1 шарнирно соединен осью 15 с упорным корпусом 8. Фиксаци корпусов между собой осуществл етс с помощью механизма 10 установки зазора прошивани , который состоит из щарнирно закрепленного на упорном корпусе 8 рычага 16 с зубом 17, кремальерного фиксатора 18 и фиксирующего штифта 19, установленного на скобочном корпусе 1. Клин II с ножом 12 подвижно установлен на скобочном корпусе 1 с возможностью перемещени вдоль продольного паза 3 скобочного магазина 2 и направл ющего паза 20 и имеет ручку 21. На толкател х 7 выполнены выступы 22, располож Brace body 1 is pivotally connected to the thrust axis 15 housing 8. The locking housings together is effected by a mechanism 10 of the gap setting stitching, which consists of scharnirno mounted on the thrust housing 8 of the lever 16 with a tooth 17, kremalernogo clip 18 and the locking pin 19, mounted The bracket on the housing 1. Wedge II with a knife 12 is movably mounted in the bracket housing 1 is movable along the longitudinal slot 3 staple holder 2 and the guide groove 20 and has a handle 21. at the pusher 7 x protrusions 22 are arranged нные в направл ющих канав- 40 ках 23 скобочного магазина 2. nnye a guide kanav- 40 23 kah staple holder 2.

Аппарат работает-следующим образом. The device operates, as follows.

Аппарат готов к работе, в таком виде его стерилизуют. The machine is ready for operation, in this form it is sterilized.

Развод т скобочный 1 и упорный-8 корпусы и помещают между ними ушиваемую ткань. Diluted 1 and the bracket 8-resistant housings and placed between the sutured tissue. Скобочный корпус 1 смыкают с упорным корпусом 8 и фиксируют их между собой с помощью механизма 10 установки зазора прошивани . Brace body 1 are brought together with the thrust body 8 and fix them together by means of stitching mechanism 10 installation clearance.

Большим пальцем руки воздействуют на ручку 21 клина 11 с ножом 12 и продвигают их вперед. Thumb act on the handle 21 of the wedge 11 with a knife 12 and pushing them forward. Клин 11, воздейству на перемычки 13 толкателей 7, перемещает их вдоль скобочных пазов. Wedge 11, the impact of the bridge 13 the pushers 7, moves them along the grooves bracketed. Толкатели 7 выталкивают скобки 6 из пазов. The pushers 7 are pushed from the grooves 6 brackets. Скобки 6 прокалывают своими заостренными ножками ткань и, упира сь в лунки 9 упорного корпуса 8, загибаютс в В-образную форму, прочно соедин ткань.
