Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL ET SON PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) A surgical instrument (102) comprises a non-rotating positioning tube (100) having at least one lumen. A blade shaft (105) (which may be a hollow tube ) passes through the lumen and one or more blades (106, 107) are attached to the distal end (115) of the blade shaft (105). The blades (107) have a non-cutting position in which they are retracted so that their diameter is roughly equivalent to the diameter of the lumen and a cutting position in which the blades extend radially outwards beyond the lumen diameter. The blades (107) are moved between the non-cutting position and the cutting position by sliding the blade shaft (105) relative to the tube (100). During a cutting procedure, the blade shaft (105) and the attached blades (107) are rotated while the tube (100) remains fixed. The instrument (102) may also be modular in construction with a main module and additional modules that are interchangeable. These additional modules can include an excision module for removing tissue and a treatment module for applying various therapeutic materials to the surgical site.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un instrument chirurgical comportant un tube de positionnement non tournant présentant au moins une lumière, un arbre porte-lame (éventuellement un tube creux) traversant la lumière, et une ou plusieurs lames fixées à son extrémité distale. Les lames peuvent se placer dans une position de non activation, en retrait, où leur diamètre est sensiblement équivalent à celui de la lumière, et une position de coupe où elle se déploient radialement au delà du diamètre de la lumière. On fait passer les lames de la position de retrait à la position de coupe en faisant coulisser l'arbre porte-lames par rapport à la gaine. Pendant une opération d'excision l'arbre porte-lames et les lames lui étant fixées tournent alors que le tube reste fixe. L'instrument peut être de construction modulaire et comporter un module principal et des modules complémentaires interchangeables, dont un module d'excision pour l'ablation des tissus et un module de traitement pour la mise en place de différents outils thérapeutiques sur le site d'intervention.
