Title (EN) ULTRASONIC SURGICAL INSTRUMENT WITH SLIDING BLADE SHEATH
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL À ULTRASONS À GAINE DE LAME COULISSANTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A surgical instrument (110) includes a gripping assembly (170), a shaft assembly (130), an end effector (140), and a pivoting member (154). The gripping assembly (170) defines a first opening (172, 182) for receiving a finger or a thumb of a user. The gripping assembly (170) includes a first deformable feature (174, 184) that is configured to be moved in order to increase or decrease a cross-sectional area of the first opening (172, 182). The shaft assembly (130) extends distally from the gripping assembly (170). The end effector (140) is positioned at a distal end of the shaft assembly (130) and includes a first member (142). The pivoting member (154) is pivotably coupled with the shaft assembly (130). The pivoting member (154) is pivotable with respect to the first member (142) of the end effector (140) between an open position and a closed position to thereby clamp tissue between the first member (142) and the pivoting member (154).
(FR) Instrument chirurgical (110) comprenant un ensemble de préhension (170), un ensemble tige (130), un effecteur terminal (140) et un élément pivotant (154). L'ensemble de préhension (170) délimite une première ouverture (172, 182) pour recevoir un doigt ou un pouce d'un utilisateur. L'ensemble de préhension (170) comprend un premier élément déformable (174, 184) qui est conçu pour être déplacé afin d'augmenter ou de diminuer une surface de section transversale de la première ouverture (172, 182). L'ensemble tige (130) s'étend de manière distale à partir de l'ensemble de préhension (170). L'effecteur terminal (140) est positionné au niveau d'une extrémité distale de l'ensemble tige (130) et comprend un premier élément (142). L'élément pivotant (154) est accouplé pivotant à l'ensemble tige (130). L'élément pivotant (154) peut pivoter par rapport au premier élément (142) de l'effecteur terminal (140) entre une position ouverte et une position fermée afin de serrer le tissu entre le premier élément (142) et l'élément pivotant (154).
