Title
(EN) DUAL-SCOPE COLONOSCOPY SYSTEM WITH SEPARATE SECONDARY COLONOSCOPE TOOL
(FR) SYSTEME DE COLONOSCOPIE A DOUBLE ETENDUE EQUIPE D'UN INSTRUMENT DE COLONOSCOPIE SECONDAIRE SEPARE
Abstract
(EN)
The present duel-scope colonoscopy system has a primary or parent colonoscope substantially typical of the field, but adapted to incorporate a separate, extended reach secondary or auxiliary colonoscope tool. The insertion tube of the secondary colonoscope tool is received in a tool channel of the parent scope, and is 'extended reach' in that the secondary insertion tube is extendable from the tip of the primary insertion tube of the parent scope an additional distance beyond the reach of the primary scope tube. The secondary colonoscope tool is a separate and complete image viewing fiberoptic colonoscope having a flexible, small diameter fiberoptic cable insertion tube of a length sufficient to substantially extend beyond a distal end the insertion tube of the parent endoscope.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un système de côlonoscopie à double étendue équipé d'un colonoscope primaire ou principal sensiblement propre à ce domaine, mais conçu pour intégrer un instrument de colonoscope secondaire ou auxiliaire à longue portée et séparé. Le tube d'insertion de l'instrument de colonoscope secondaire est reçu dans un canal d'instrument à portée principale, et est « à longue portée » en ce que le tube d'insertion secondaire peut s'étendre depuis l'extrémité du tube d'insertion secondaire de l'étendue principale sur une distance supplémentaire au-delà de la portée du tube d'étendue primaire. Cet instrument de colonoscope secondaire consiste en un colonoscope en fibres optiques à visualisation d'image séparée et entière, doté d'un tube d'insertion de câble en fibres optiques de diamètre petit et flexible présentant une longueur suffisante pour sensiblement s'étendre au-delà d'une extrémité distale du tube d'insertion de l'endoscope principal.
