Title (EN) EXPANDABLE MULTI-FUNCTIONAL MANIPULATING INSTRUMENTS
(FR) INSTRUMENTS DE MANIPULATION DILATABLES, PLURIFONCTIONNELS
Abstract:
(EN) An expandable multi-functional instrument (10) for performing various diverse operative procedures, includes an elongate distensible member (18) having a distal end (26) for being introduced in an anatomical cavity via a relatively small size anatomical opening, and being movable from a non-distended position facilitating introduction through the anatomical opening to a distended position wherein the cross-sectional size of the distensible member is increased, and a plurality of collars (20) disposed on portions of the distensible member (18) for constraining movement of the distensible member portions to the distended position. The collars (20) are movably mounted on the distensible member (18) for adjusting the location and size of unconstrained distensible portions (34) of the distensible member (18) adjacent the collars (20). A method of performing an operative procedure in an anatomical cavity includes the steps of introducing a distal end of an elongate distensible member in the anatomical cavity through a relatively small size anatomical opening and moving the distensible member from a non-expanded position to an expanded position.
(FR) Un instrument (10) dilatable, plurifonctionnel, permettant d'effectuer diverses procédures opératoires, comprend un organe allongé extensible (18) . Cet organe comporte une extrémité distale (26) en vue de son introduction dans une cavité anatomique par une ouverture anatomique de taille relativement petite. Il peut se déplacer à partir d'une position non détendue facilitant son introduction par l'ouverture anatomique, jusqu'à une position détendue dans laquelle la taille de la section transversale de l'organe extensible augmente. Cet organe comprend également une pluralité de collets (20) fixés sur les parties de l'organe extensible (18) pour bloquer le déplacement des parties (34) de l'organe extensible vers la position détendue. Les collets (20) sont fixés de manière amovible sur l'organe extensible (18) pour ajuster l'emplacement et la taille des parties extensibles non bloquées (34) de l'organe extensible (18) adjacentes aux collets (20). L'invention traite aussi d'un procédé pour effectuer une procédure opératoire dans une cavité anatomique, qui comprend les étapes d'introduction d'une extrémité distale d'un organe extensible allongé dans la cavité anatomique par une ouverture anatomique relativement petite, et de passage de l'organe extensible d'une position non déployée à une position déployée.
