Title (EN) ARTICULATABLE SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS WITH SINGLE ARTICULATION LINK ARRANGEMENTS
(FR) INSTRUMENTS CHIRURGICAUX ARTICULÉS COMPORTANT DES AGENCEMENTS DE LIAISON D'ARTICULATION UNIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A surgical instrument that comprises an elongate shaft assembly that defines a shaft axis. A surgical end effector is pivotally coupled to the elongate shaft assembly for selective pivotal travel about an articulation axis that extends transversely relative to the shaft axis. The surgical instrument further includes an articulation system that comprises a single articulation driver that is supported for longitudinal travel along a path that is laterally offset from the shaft axis. A cross link is coupled to the articulation driver and extends transversely across the shaft axis to be coupled to the surgical end effector.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument chirurgical comprenant un ensemble tige allongé qui définit un axe de tige. Un organe terminal effecteur chirurgical est couplé pivotant à l'ensemble tige allongé pour pivoter sélectivement autour d'un axe d'articulation qui s'étend transversalement par rapport à l'axe de tige. L'instrument chirurgical comprend en outre un système d'articulation qui comprend un seul dispositif d'entraînement d'articulation qui est soutenu pour un déplacement longitudinal le long d'un trajet qui est décalé latéralement par rapport à l'axe de tige. Une liaison transversale est couplée au dispositif d'entraînement d'articulation et s'étend transversalement sur l'axe de tige devant être couplé à l'organe terminal effecteur chirurgical.
