Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT WITH ROTATABLY MOUNTED OFFSET END EFFECTOR AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL A TERMINAL DESAXE MONTE ROTATIF ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) An instrument (30) for operating on anatomical tissue includes a barrel (32) having at least one shaft. An end effector (50) is offset from the shaft. In an insertion position, the end effector is confined within the diametrical dimension of the barrel at a distal end thereof. After insertion, the end effector can be manipulated to extend beyond the diametrical dimension of the barrel to provide a large working span in which tissue can be manipulated.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un instrument chirurgical permettant d'intervenir sur un tissu anatomique. Cet instrument se compose d'un barillet équipé d'une tige. L'une des extrémités est désaxée par rapport la tige. En position d'insertion, le terminal est rentré dans le volume diamétral du barillet, au niveau de son extrémité distale. Après insertion, le terminal peut, grâce à une manipulation, se déployer au-delà du volume diamétral du barillet de façon à occuper un grand volume d'intervention dans lequel il soit possible de manipuler le tissu.
