Title (EN) EXPANDABLE SURGICAL SITE ACCESS SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME EXTENSIBLE D'ACCÈS À UN SITE CHIRURGICAL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An expandable surgical site access system and method for using the expandable surgical site access system to perform minimally invasive, percutaneous surgeries to access the spine or other bone structures, organs, or locations of the body is disclosed. In one embodiment, the expandable surgical site access system includes an elongated, expandable stent (20) that is particularly adapted to be deployed in a body during a surgical procedure to provide access to a surgical site (24) within the body. The stent (20) defines a working channel (26) through the body from a point of entry (28) to the surgical site (24).
(FR)L'invention concerne un système extensible d'accès à un site chirurgical et un procédé pour utiliser ce système pour effectuer des actes chirurgicaux percutanés à invasion minimale et accéder à la moelle épinière ou à d'autres structures osseuses, organes ou emplacements du corps. Dans un monde de réalisation, le système extensible d'accès à un site chirurgical comprend un stent (20) extensible allongé conçu pour être déployé dans le corps pendant un acte chirurgical afin de fournir un accès à un site chirurgical (24) à l'intérieur du corps. Le stent (20) définit un canal de travail (26) traversant le corps d'un point d'entrée (28) au site chirurgical (24).
