Abstract:
(EN) A novel surgical clamp having a pair of jaws, which may be used to ablate or create leisons in tissue. In embodiment, the jaws have an articulated position wherein the jaws are separated and not parallel to one another, an opened position wherein the jaws are separated and substantially parallel to one another, and a closed position wherein the jaws are adjacent and substantially parallel to one another. One or more of the jaws can articulate independent of the other jaw. Other embodiments are described in the attached specification.

Dans un mode de réalisation, les mâchoires présentent une position articulée dans laquelle elles sont séparées et non parallèles l'une par rapport à l'autre, une position ouverte dans laquelle elles sont séparées et sensiblement parallèles l'une par rapport à l'autre, ainsi qu'une position fermée dans laquelle elles sont adjacentes et sensiblement parallèles l'une par rapport à l'autre. L'une au moins de ces mâchoires peut s'articuler indépendamment de l'autre mâchoire. D'autres modes de réalisation sont décrits dans la description de la présente invention.
