Title: ENDOSCOPE INCLUDING A TORQUE GENERATION COMPONENT OR TORQUE DELIVERY COMPONENT DISPOSED WITHIN AN INSERTABLE PORTION OF THE ENDOSCOPE AND A SURGICAL CUTTING ASSEMBLY INSERTABLE WITHIN THE ENDOSCOPE
Abstract:
An endoscope for removing tissue at a surgical site includes an elongated tubular body insertable within a mammalian cavity of a patient. An instrument channel extends between a first opening at a distal end and a second opening at a proximal end of the tubular body and is sized and configured to receive a surgical cutting assembly (5680) that includes an aspiration channel configured to remove material entering the endoscope via a distal end of the surgical cutting assembly. A torque generation component (5610) configured to generate torque is positioned within the distal end and configured to provide the generated torque to a coupling component (5630). The coupling component is positioned at the distal end of the elongated tubular member and configured to actuate a cutting component of the surgical cutting assembly responsive to actuation of the torque generation component.
