Title (EN) LOW FRICTION CANNULA SEALS FOR MINIMALLY INVASIVE ROBOTIC SURGERY
(FR) JOINTS DE CANULE À FAIBLE FROTTEMENT POUR CHIRURGIE ROBOTISÉE MINIMALEMENT INVASIVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments of a cannula seal are disclosed. In some embodiments, a cannula seal can include a base portion that engages with a cannula; and a seal portion integrally formed with the base portion that slidebly engages with an instrument shaft such that an insertion frictional force between the seal portion and the instrument shaft for insertion of the instrument shaft is symmetrical and substantially equal with a retraction frictional force.
(FR)Selon des modes de réalisation, l'invention se rapporte à un joint de canule. Selon certains modes de réalisation, un joint de canule peut comprendre une partie base qui entre en prise avec une canule; et une partie joint faisant corps avec la partie base qui entre en prise coulissante avec une tige d'instrument de sorte qu'une force de frottement d'introduction entre la partie joint et la tige d'instrument pour l'introduction de la tige d'instrument soit symétrique et sensiblement égale à une force de frottement de rétraction.
