Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT WITH DUAL MODE END EFFECTOR AND SIDE-LOADED CLAMP ARM ASSEMBLY
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL AVEC EFFECTEUR D'EXTRÉMITÉ BIMODE ET ENSEMBLE BRAS DE CLAMPAGE À CHARGE LATÉRALE
Abstract:
(EN) A surgical instrument includes a body, an ultrasonic blade, a clamp arm, and a resilient member. The body includes an electrical conductor and defines a longitudinal axis. The clamp arm is pivotably coupled with the body at a pivot assembly. The clamp arm is operable to compress tissue against the ultrasonic blade. The clamp arm includes an electrode operable to apply RF energy to tissue, wherein the clamp arm is configured to be loaded onto and removed from the body at the pivot assembly along a path that is transverse to the longitudinal axis defined by the body. The resilient member is located within the pivot assembly. The resilient member is configured to provide electrical continuity between the electrode of the clamp arm and the electrical conductor of the body.
(FR) Un instrument chirurgical comprend un corps, une lame ultrasonique, un bras de clampage, et un élément élastique. Le corps comprend un conducteur électrique et définit un axe longitudinal. Le bras de clampage est couplé de manière pivotante avec le corps au niveau d'un ensemble pivot. Le bras de clampage peut être utilisé pour comprimer les tissus contre la lame ultrasonique. Le bras de clampage comprend une électrode conçue pour appliquer de l'énergie RF au tissu, le bras de clampage étant configuré pour être chargé dans le corps et retiré de celui-ci au niveau de l'ensemble pivot le long d'un trajet qui est transversal à l'axe longitudinal défini par le corps. L'élément élastique est situé à l'intérieur de l'ensemble pivot. L'élément élastique est configuré pour assurer une continuité électrique entre l'électrode du bras de clampage et le conducteur électrique du corps.
