Title (EN) SURGICAL RETRACTOR
(FR) ECARTEUR CHIRURGICAL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Surgical retractor (6), designed in particular for minimally invasive operations, comprising an elastic plate (12) rolled up about an axis so as to form the side wall of a substantially truncated cone shape, the narrowest cross section (16) of the truncated cone constituting the distal part of this retractor, when the retractor is in place, and delimiting an operating field, the widest cross section (20) of the truncated cone forming the proximal part, through which instruments can be introduced, said plate (12) being able to be rolled up into a substantially cylindrical shape with a diameter smaller than or equal to the narrowest cross section of its truncated cone shape.
(FR)L’invention concerne un écarteur chirurgical (6), tout particulièrement conçu pour les procédures mini-invasives, comprenant une plaque élastique (12) enroulée autour d’un axe pour former la paroi latérale d’une forme sensiblement tronconique, la section transversale la plus étroite (16) de la forme sensiblement tronconique constituant la partie distale de l’écarteur lorsque celui-ci est en place, et délimitant un champ fonctionnel, la section transversale la plus large (20) de la forme sensiblement tronconique formant la partie proximale de l’écarteur par laquelle des instruments peuvent être introduits, la plaque (12) pouvant être enroulée pour former une forme sensiblement cylindrique dont le diamètre est inférieur ou égal à la section transversale la plus étroite de sa forme sensiblement tronconique.
