Title (EN) STEERABLE DEVICE FOR ACCESSING A TARGET SITE AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIF ORIENTABLE DESTINE A ACCEDER A UN SITE CIBLE ET PROCEDES CORRESPONDANTS
Abstract:
(EN) A variety of steerable needles, lancets, trocars, stylets, cannulas and systems are provided for examining, diagnosing, treating, or removing tissue from a patient. The steerable needles, trocars, stylets, cannulas and systems also provide a platform for delivery of target materials, such as therapeutics, biologics, polymers, glues, etc., to a target site. An embodiment of the invention includes a steerable device for use in accessing target site in a patient comprising: a steerable member adapted to penetrate tissue; and a steering mechanism adapted to be operated by a user to apply a bending force to bend the steerable member to access the target site.
(FR) L'invention concerne une variété d'aiguilles, de lancettes, de trocarts, de stylets, de canules et des systèmes orientables destinés à examiner, diagnostiquer, traiter ou éliminer des tissus chez un patient. Les aiguilles, les trocarts, les stylets, les canules et les système orientables fournissent également une plate-forme destinée à délivrer une matière cible, notamment thérapeutique, biologique, polymère, adhésive, etc., vers un site cible. L'un des modes de réalisation de l'invention comprend un dispositif orientable utilisé en vue d'accéder à un site cible chez un patient qui comprend: un élément orientable conçu de manière à pénétrer les tissus; et un mécanisme orientable conçu de manière à servir à un utilisateur afin d'appliquer une force de pliage pour plier l'élément orientable en vue d'accéder au site cible.
