Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS AND END EFFECTORS THEREFOR
(FR) INSTRUMENTS CHIRURGICAUX ET ORGANES TERMINAUX EFFECTEURS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Various forms of surgical instruments are disclosed. In various embodiments, an end effector having operable and closable jaws is attached to a distal end of an elongate shaft such that portions of the jaws are axially offset from the elongate shaft. Other jaw embodiments are coupled to an actuation arrangement that permits portions of the jaws to be moved out of axial alignment with the elongate shaft. Other jaw embodiments are configured to facilitate tissue dissection. Electrosurgical instruments are also disclosed. One embodiment employs a flexible electrode that is conformable to tissue.
(FR)La présente invention concerne diverses formes d'instruments chirurgicaux. Dans divers modes de réalisation, un organe terminal effecteur doté de mâchoires pouvant être manœuvrées et fermées est fixé à une extrémité distale d'une tige allongée, de manière à ce que des parties des mâchoires soient décalées axialement depuis ladite tige allongée. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, les mâchoires sont accouplées à un dispositif d'actionnement qui permet à des parties des mâchoires d'être déplacées en dehors de l'alignement axial avec la tige allongée. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, les mâchoires sont conçues pour faciliter la dissection de tissus. L'invention porte en outre sur des instruments électrochirurgicaux. Dans un mode de réalisation, une électrode souple qui peut se conformer au tissu est utilisée.
