Title
(EN) SHEATH AND APPLICATOR FOR SURGICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) GAINE ET APPLICATEUR POUR INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL
Abstract
(EN)
A sterile sheath (12) and applicator (14) apparatus for use with a surgical instrument (100), includes a flexible sheath member (12) defining a longitudinal bore (20) at least extending through the proximal end (16) thereof dimensioned for reception of an elongated portion (104) of a surgical instrument and an applicator (14) mounted adjacent the proximal end (16) of the sheath member (12) for facilitating positioning of the sheath member (12) about the elongated portion (104) of the surgical instrument (100). The applicator (14) includes a hollow tube portion defining an axial bore therethrough and a handle (34) operatively connected to the tube portion. The tube portion is sufficient in length to support the sheath member (12) in a folded condition thereof with a major portion of the length of the sheath member disposed about the tubular portion. The handle (34) is dimensioned to be engaged by a surgeon and manipulated to extend the sheath member (12) about the elongated portion (104) of the instrument (100) to an extended position with the elongated portion (104) at least partially received within the longitudinal bore (20) of the sheath member (12).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une gaine stérile (12) et un applicateur (14) conçus pour un instrument chirurgical (100), comprenant une gaine flexible (12) formant un trou longitudinal (20) qui s'étend au moins jusqu'à son extrémité proximale (16), dimensionné pour recevoir la partie allongée (104) d'un instrument chirurgical, et un applicateur (14) monté à proximité de l'extrémité proximale (16) de la gaine (12) pour faciliter le placement de cette dernière autour du segment allongé (104) de l'instrument chirurgical (100). L'applicateur (14) comprend un tube creux comportant intérieurement un trou axial et une poignée (34) reliée de manière fonctionnelle à ce tube. Ce tube est suffisamment long pour porter la gaine (12) pliée autour de celui-ci, la totalité de sa longueur étant enroulée autour de la partie tubulaire. La poignée (34) est dimensionnée pour être tenue par un chirurgien et manipulée pour déplier la gaine (12) autour de la partie allongée (104) de l'instrument (100) jusqu'à la position déployée, le segment allongé (104) étant au moins partiellement contenu dans le trou longitudinal (20) de la gaine (12).
