(54) Title (EN): SHIFTING BURR CAP ASSEMBLY
(54) Title (FR): ENSEMBLE CAPUCHON DE FRAISE À DÉPLACEMENT

(57) Abstract:
(EN): A burr cap assembly is at least partially inserted into a burr hole within the cranium of a patient. The burr cap assembly enables a elongate member to be inserted through the burr cap assembly to access a brain of the patient. A shifting member of the burr cap assembly may be configured to enable the elongate member to move with shifting fluid and matter of the brain. The shifting member of the burr cap assembly may be configured to move within a cavity defined by the burr cap assembly. The shifting member may be configured to move in a direction that is substantially perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of the distal portion of the elongate member. The shifting member may at least partially retain the elongate member so that the elongate member and the shifting member may move within the cavity.
(FR): La présente invention concerne un ensemble capuchon de fraise au moins partiellement inséré dans un trou de fraise à l'intérieur du crâne d'un patient. L'ensemble capuchon de fraise permet à un élément allongé d'être inséré à travers l'ensemble capuchon de fraise pour accéder au cerveau du patient. Un élément de déplacement de l'ensemble capuchon de fraise peut être configuré pour permettre à l'élément allongé de se déplacer avec le liquide et la matière du cerveau déplacés. L'élément de déplacement de l'ensemble capuchon de fraise peut être configuré pour se déplacer à l'intérieur d'une cavité définie par l'ensemble capuchon de fraise. L'élément de déplacement peut être configuré pour se déplacer dans un sens qui est sensiblement perpendiculaire à un axe longitudinal de la partie distale de l'élément allongé. L'élément de déplacement peut au moins partiellement retenir l'élément allongé de sorte que l'élément allongé et l'élément de décalage peuvent se déplacer à l'intérieur de la cavité.
