Title: INSTRUMENT, IN PARTICULAR MEDICAL ENDOSCOPIC INSTRUMENT
Abstract:
The invention relates to an instrument, in particular a medical endoscopic instrument. This instrument has a shaft (2) and an instrument head (8) arranged on the distal side of the shaft (2). The instrument head (8) is joined to the shaft (2) via a double joint (6) having two joint axes arranged at a distance to one another in the longitudinal direction of the instrument. In addition, the instrument has two control cables (52, 54) guided through the shaft (2), which are movingly coupled to the instrument head (8) in an antagonistically effective manner, and which are in contact, in the region of the distal end of the shaft (2), with two guide surfaces of a cable guide (58) facing one another in the radial direction of the shaft (2), wherein the guide surfaces of the cable guide (58) can be moved in the direction transverse to the central axis of the shaft (2).
