Title
(EN) ENDOSCOPIC SHEATH ASSEMBLY
(FR) ASSEMBLAGE DE GAINE ENDOSCOPIQUE
Abstract
(EN) A sheath assembly for an endoscope includes an elongate tubular body and a plug. The endoscope has a handle portion and a scope portion extending therefrom to a tip. The body includes first and second wall sections and extends along a longitudinal axis between first and second distal openings located at distal and proximal ends thereof, respectively. The first wall section extends radially about the longitudinal axis to define a scope lumen. The scope portion is receivable in the scope lumen with the distal and proximal ends. The second wall section extends radially about a portion of the first wall section and longitudinally between second distal and proximal end openings. The first and second wall sections define an integral suction lumen in fluid communication with a first source of negative pressure. The plug is mated with the distal end opening and includes a lens surface through which energy is transmissible.
(FR) L'invention concerne un assemblage de gaine pour un endoscope comprenant un corps tubulaire allongé et un obturateur. L'endoscope comprend une partie manche et une partie optique s'étendant de cette dernière vers un embout. Le corps comprend une première et une seconde section de paroi et s'étend le long d'un axe longitudinal entre des premières et secondes ouvertures distales situées respectivement aux extrémités distale et proximale de celui-ci. La première section de paroi s'étend radialement autour de l'axe longitudinal pour définir une lumière de viseur. La partie viseur peut être reçue dans la lumière de viseur avec les extrémités distale et proximale. La seconde section de paroi s'étend radialement autour de la première section de paroi et longitudinalement entre les secondes ouvertures des extrémités distale et proximale. Les première et seconde sections de paroi définissent une lumière d'aspiration intégrale en communication fluidique avec une première source de pression négative. L'obturateur est adapté à l'ouverture de l'extrémité distale et comprend une surface de lentille à travers laquelle de l'énergie est transmissible.
