(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET DISPOSITIFS LAPAROSCOPIQUES À ANGLE COMPOSÉ
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and devices are provided for performing minimally invasive surgical procedures. In one embodiment, a surgical device is provided that include an elongate shaft having a distal portion configured to be movable between a first configuration in which the distal portion of the shaft is substantially straight or linear and a second configuration in which the distal portion of the shaft is articulated at a compound angle. The shaft's distal portion can include two articulation joints to facilitate formation of the compound angle.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des procédés et des dispositifs pour la réalisation d'opérations chirurgicales invasives de façon minimale. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'invention porte sur un dispositif chirurgical comprenant une tige allongée ayant une partie distale configurée pour être déplaçable entre une première configuration dans laquelle la partie distale de la tige est sensiblement rectiligne ou linéaire et une seconde configuration dans laquelle la partie distale de la tige est articulée à un angle composé. La partie distale de la tige peut comprendre deux joints d'articulation pour faciliter la formation de l'angle composé.
