Title (EN) ENDOSCOPE SYSTEM ADAPTER
(FR) ADAPTATEUR DE SYSTÈME ENDOSCOPIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An adaptor and adaptor kit are described in which the adaptors may be configured to be removably coupled to a working channel of an endoscope system, such as a hysteroscope system. The adaptors may include an elongate body having a central lumen extending between a distal end and a proximal end of the elongate body, and a bend along a length of the elongate body between the distal and proximal ends. The adaptors may be configured to accommodate variations in patient anatomy, such as variations in the size and shape of a uterus, and location of the ostia to the fallopian tubes. A plurality of non-identical adaptors having a number of different characteristics may be sold in a kit so that particular adaptor can be selected for use with a particular patient anatomy.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un adaptateur et un kit d'adaptateur, les adaptateurs pouvant être configurés pour être couplés de façon amovible à un canal de travail d'un système endoscopique, tel qu'un système d'hystéroscopie. Les adaptateurs peuvent comprendre un corps allongé ayant une lumière centrale s'étendant entre une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale du corps allongé, et une flexion le long d'une longueur du corps allongé entre les extrémités distale et proximale. Les adaptateurs peuvent être configurés pour se conformer à des variations dans l'anatomie du patient, telles que les variations de la taille et la forme d'un utérus, et l'emplacement de l'ostia vers les trompes de Fallope. Une pluralité d'adaptateurs non identiques ayant une pluralité de caractéristiques différentes peuvent être commercialisés dans un kit de sorte que l'adaptateur particulier puisse être choisi pour utilisation avec une anatomie de patient particulière.
