Title
(EN) LITHOTRIPTER WITH IMPROVED STERILIZATION TIME
(FR) LITHOTRIPTEUR AVEC TEMPS DE STÉRILISATION AMÉLIORÉ
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and method are presented for a lithotripter comprising a handle, a driver resource contained within the handle, a probe housed within the handle, an extension which may be the probe, a shielding insert, or a removable passageway which extends through a central lumen of the driver resource and protects the central lumen from surgical debris when in use and as a result reduces time required to perform sterilization. Sealing means may be provided to connect the probe into the handle, including a ferrule, collet, split collet, screw connection, O-rings, or a combination thereof So further limit debris entering the central lumen of the handle. It is contemplated that the device of the present invention is capable of achieving a four minute flash cycle validation,
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé pour lithotripteur comportant une poignée, une ressource d'entraînement contenue à l'intérieur de la poignée, une sonde logée à l'intérieur de la poignée, une extension qui peut être la sonde, un insert de protection, ou un passage amovible qui s'étend à travers une lumière centrale de la ressource d'entraînement et protège la lumière centrale des débris chirurgicaux lors de l'utilisation, et réduit en conséquence le temps nécessaire pour effectuer la stérilisation. Des moyens d'étanchéité peuvent être prévus pour relier la sonde dans la poignée, comprenant une virole, une pince de serrage, une virole fendue, une vis de connexion, des joints toriques, ou leur combinaison, afin de limiter l'entrée de débris dans la lumière centrale de la poignée. Le dispositif de la présente invention peut être apte à obtenir une validation de cycle de vaporisation de quatre minutes.
