Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT WITH ADHESION OPTIMIZED EDGE CONDITION
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL AYANT UN ÉTAT DE BORD D'ADHÉRENCE OPTIMISÉE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A surgical instrument (10) for use in vitreoretinal surgeries is described. The surgical instrument includes a pair of pincers (13,14) resiliently biased toward an opened configuration and being movable toward each other into a closed configuration to engage a membrane. Each pincer may include a rounded grasping edge (22). The grasping edges may include a textured surface (50) operable to induce a capillary effect between a membrane and the forceps to promote adhesion therebetween.
(FR)L'invention concerne un instrument chirurgical (10) destiné à être utilisé pendant des opérations chirurgicales vitréo-rétiniennes. L'instrument chirurgical comprend une paire de pinces (13, 14) sollicitées élastiquement vers une configuration ouverte et mobiles l'une vers l'autre dans une configuration fermée pour venir en contact avec une membrane. Chaque pince peut comprendre un bord de prise arrondi (22). Les bords de prise peuvent comprendre une surface texturée (50) conçue pour induire un effet capillaire entre une membrane et le forceps pour favoriser l'adhérence entre eux.
