Title (EN) BALANCED ULTRASONIC CURVED BLADE
(FR) LAME COURBE A ULTRASONS EQUILIBREE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and devices that provide reduced transverse motion in a curved ultrasonic blade and/or ultrasonic surgical instrument with functional asymmetries. An ultrasonic blade in accordance with embodiments of the present invention includes a curved functional portion of an ultrasonic blade, wherein the center of mass of the curved functional portion lies on the mid-line of a waveguide delivering ultrasonic energy to the blade. Balancing in accordance with embodiments of the present invention, using placement of the center of mass of the curved portion of the blade appropriately, provides blade balance in a proximal portion of the blade, without reduction of mass and inherent stress increase proximal to the end-effector.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs qui réduisent le mouvement transversal d'une lame courbe à ultrasons et/ou d'un instrument chirurgical à ultrasons présentant des asymétries fonctionnelles. Selon certains modes de réalisation de l'invention, une lame à ultrasons comporte une partie fonctionnelle courbe dont le centre de masse se situe sur la ligne médiane d'un guide d'ondes qui alimente la lame à ultrasons en énergie ultrasons. L'équilibrage selon les modes de réalisation de l'invention, par placement correct du centre de masse de la partie courbe de la lame, assure l'équilibre de la lame dans la partie proximale de la lame, sans réduction de la masse ni augmentation des contraintes inhérentes à proximité de l'organe effecteur.
