Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to surgical retractors and devices for stabilizing a predetermined area of the body during a surgical procedure, more particularly to surgical retractors and stabilizing devices used in connection with minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting surgical procedures, and more specifically to surgical retractors and stabilizing devices especially configured for use with each other for such surgical procedures wherein the retractor includes an external rail system which enables the surgeon to position a curved stabilization arm on either of the arms or the rack segment of the retractor and also includes a connector which releasably controls the rotation of the connector with respect to the retractor and the rotation of the stabilization arm with respect to the retractor as well as the rotational and sliding movement of a curved stabilization arm with respect to the connector upon actuation of a single knob or actuator.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des écarteurs chirurgicaux et des dispositifs permettant de stabiliser une zone prédéterminée du corps pendant une intervention chirurgicale, plus particulièrement des écarteurs chirurgicaux et des dispositifs de stabilisation utilisés dans le cadre des interventions chirurgicales de pontage aortocoronarien minimalement invasives, et plus spécifiquement des écarteurs chirurgicaux et des dispositifs de stabilisation spécialement configurés pour être utilisés ensemble en vue de pratiquer des interventions chirurgicales dans lesquelles l'écarteur comprend un système de rail externe qui permet au chirurgien de positionner un bras de stabilisation courbé sur un des deux bras ou sur le segment de support de l'écarteur ainsi qu'un connecteur qui commande de manière débrayable la rotation du connecteur relativement à l'écarteur et la rotation du bras de stabilisation relativement à l'écarteur ainsi que le mouvement de rotation et de glissement d'un bras de stabilisation courbé relativement au connecteur lors de la mise en oeuvre d'un bouton ou d'un actionneur unique.
