Title
(EN) Endo-surgery glove and seal
Abstract
(EN)

A surgical glove for endoscopic surgical procedures is disclosed. In the preferred embodiment, the surgical glove has an inflatable wrist section, which when inflated, provides a seal between the surgeon's gloved hand and the body wall for obstructing the passage of gas from the abdominal cavity during endoscopic surgery. The inflated glove wrist section will conform to the surgeon's hand and the abdominal cavity wall to provide the seal and yet allow the surgeon's hand to move in an inward or outward direction transversely to the abdominal wall.
