Title (EN) RETRACTABLE CANNULA AND METHOD FOR MINIMALLY INVASIVE MEDICAL PROCEDURE
(FR) CANULE ESCAMOTABLE ET PROCEDE SE RAPPORTANT A DES ACTES MEDICAUX AVEC EFFRACTION MINIMALE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatuses and methods for performing minimally invasive medical procedures are disclosed herein. In one example, an apparatus includes an outer elongate body including a lumen extending from a proximal portion to a distal portion of the outer elongate body. An inner elongate body is slidably received within the lumen of the outer elongate body. A distal portion of the inner elongate body is configured to be inserted into a tissue. The outer elongate body and the inner elongate body collectively define a channel to removably receive a tool when the outer elongate body and the inner elongate body are slidably extended from each other. At least one of the tool and the inner elongate body are configured to puncture the tissue.
(FR) L'invention concerne des appareils et des procédés se rapportant à des actes médicaux avec effraction minimale. Dans un exemple, un appareil comprend un corps allongé externe présentant une lumière qui s'étend d'une partie proximale à une partie distale du corps allongé externe. Un corps allongé interne est placé par coulissement à l'intérieur de la lumière du corps allongé externe. Une partie distale du corps allongé interne est configurée pour être insérée dans un tissu. Le corps allongé externe et le corps allongé interne délimitent ensemble un canal destiné à recevoir de façon amovible un outil lorsque le corps allongé externe et le corps allongé interne sont écartés l'un de l'autre par coulissement. Au moins l'outil ou le corps allongé interne est configuré pour percer le tissu.
