Title: A SYSTEM TO MANIPULATE ORGANS AND INSTRUMENTS FOR MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY
Abstract:
The present invention is generally related to the art of minimally invasive surgery, and more specifically to reduced or single port laparoscopic surgery. This invention is a system of instruments that generally comprises of a surgical end effector, a receiver unit connected to the base of such an end effector, an external control link and an applicator for the control link. The entire system enables a surgeon at the time of his or her choosing, to externally control the end effector to manipulate organs, with minimal interference in the procedure at hand. In a preferred embodiment, the surgical end effector may be a mechanical atraumatic tissue grasping component enabling the retraction of internal organs.
