(FR) GUIDE D'AIGUILLE
Abstract
(EN)
A needle guide (10) for guiding the insertion of a needle (12) in a patient (14), the needle guide (10) comprising: a base element (16), the base element (16) including an abutment section (20) for abutting against the patient (14) and a spacer (22) extending from the abutment section (20); and a guiding element (18), the guiding element (18) defining at least one guiding aperture (36) extending therethrough for inserting the needle (12) therethrough; the guiding element (36) being removably attachable to the spacer (22) and movable between a distal position and a proximal position. In the distal position, the guiding element (18) is attached to the spacer (22) in a spaced apart relationship relatively to the abutment section (20), and, in the proximal position, the guiding element (18) is detached from the spacer (22) and substantially adjacent to the base element (18).

(FR)
L'invention porte sur un guide d'aiguille (10) destiné à guider l'introduction d'une aiguille (12) chez un patient (14). Le guide d'aiguille (10) comporte un élément de base (16), l'élément de base (16) comprenant une section de butée (20) destiné à venir en butée contre le patient (14) et un espaceur (22) s'étendant à partir de la section de butée (20), et un élément de guidage (18), l'élément de guidage (18) définissant au moins une ouverture de guidage (36) traversant ledit élément et destinée à l'introduction de l'aiguille (12). L'élément de guidage (36) peut être fixé de façon amovible à l'espaceur (22) et se déplacer entre une position distale et une position proximale. En position distale, l'élément de guidage (18) est attaché à l'espaceur (22) dans une relation espacée par rapport à la section de butée (20), et en position proximale, l'élément de guidage (18) est détaché de l'espaceur (22) et est sensiblement adjacent à l'élément de base (18).
