Title: RESECTOSCOPE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a resectoscope intended to be inserted into an individual's anorectal cavity for diagnostic and/or surgical purposes, comprising a radial light source (13) which can be moved gradually and which creates a radial light beam so as to transilluminate both the tubular body (1) of the resectoscope and the portion of the rectum into which it is inserted, allowing the cavity interior to be closely observed and, upon detection of any foreign body to be surgically removed, such as a tumour, allowing the distal resection margin to be accurately determined in order to minimise the portion of rectum removed.
