Title
(EN) CONTAINER AND SYSTEM OF CONTAINERS OF SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS FOR KNEE SURGERY
(FR) RÉCEPTACLE ET SYSTÈME DE RÉCEPTACLES D'INSTRUMENTS CHIRURGICAUX POUR LA CHIRURGIE DU GENOU
Abstract
(EN)
A system (1) comprising at least: a first container (2) containing at least a first surgical instrument (8a) of a first type that is size specific and a second surgical instrument (10a) of a second type that is size specific, wherein both the first and second instruments are of a first size; a second container (4) containing at least a third surgical instrument of the first type and a fourth surgical instrument of the second type, wherein both the third and fourth instruments are of a second size which is different from the first size; and a third container (6) containing at least a fifth surgical instrument of a third type which is size independent. The system allows instrumentation to be grouped and stored so that the number of instruments opened but not used in complex surgical procedures is reduced. The combination of the first and second containers (with instruments of a single size) allows the system to group instruments according to size and/or function, avoiding the need to open containers with instruments of a size that is not being used. The third container can provide instruments that may be used at more than one point in the procedure, to avoid needing to provide multiple instruments in different containers and to simplify inventory. The third container may also provide instruments used for determining the required size of the instruments in the first and second containers.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système (1) comprenant au moins : un premier réceptacle (2) contenant au moins un premier instrument chirurgical (8a) d'un premier type qui est spécifique d'une taille, et un deuxième instrument chirurgical (10a) d'un deuxième type qui est spécifique d'une taille, le premier et le deuxième instrument ayant une première taille; un deuxième réceptacle (4) contenant au moins un troisième instrument chirurgical du premier type et un quatrième instrument chirurgical du deuxième type, le troisième et le quatrième instrument ayant une deuxième taille qui est différente de la première taille; et un troisième réceptacle (6) contenant au moins un cinquième instrument chirurgical d'un troisième type indépendant de la taille. Le système permet le regroupement et le stockage des instruments de façon à réduire le nombre d'instruments ouverts mais non utilisés dans les protocoles chirurgicaux complexes. La combinaison du premier et du deuxième réceptacle (contenant des instruments d'une seule taille) permet au système de regrouper les instruments en fonction de la taille et/ou de la fonction, en évitant d'ouvrir des réceptacles contenant des instruments d'une taille qui n'est pas utilisée. Le troisième réceptacle peut fournir des instruments qui peuvent être utilisés en plusieurs points du protocole, afin d'éviter de devoir ranger plusieurs instruments dans des réceptacles différents et de simplifier l'inventaire. Le troisième réceptacle peut également fournir des instruments utilisés pour déterminer la taille requise des instruments dans le premier et le deuxième réceptacle.
