Title (EN) SEALING AND CUTTING SURGICAL INSTRUMENT WITH ADVANCED FEEDBACK LOOP
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL D'ÉTANCHÉITÉ ET DE COUPE AVEC BOUCLE DE RETOUR D'INFORMATION AVANCÉE
Abstract:
(EN) Surgical instruments and assemblies for sealing and cutting tissue monitor jaw angle and/or jaw clamping force to provide feedback to an operator of the surgical instrument indicative of whether the tissue is suitable clamped for sealing and/or cutting. A surgical instrument or assembly includes a jaw operable to clamp tissue, a sealing mechanism, a cutting mechanism, an actuation monitoring assembly, and a feedback assembly. The actuation monitoring assembly monitors jaw angle and/or clamping force. The feedback assembly outputs feedback to the operator, based on the jaw angle and/or clamping force, as to whether the current clamping angle and/or jaw angle is suitable for sealing and/or clamping tissue.
(FR) L'invention concerne des instruments chirurgicaux et des ensembles pour sceller et couper un tissu qui surveillent l'angle des mâchoires et/ou la force de serrage des mâchoires afin de fournir un retour d'information à un opérateur de l'instrument chirurgical, indiquant si le tissu est serré de manière appropriée pour une étanchéité et/ou une coupe. Un instrument ou ensemble chirurgical comprend une mâchoire utilisable pour serrer un tissu, un mécanisme d'étanchéité, un mécanisme de coupe, un ensemble surveillance d'actionnement et un ensemble retour d'information. L'ensemble surveillance d'actionnement surveille l'angle et/ou la force de serrage des mâchoires. L'ensemble retour d'information délivre en sortie un retour d'information à l'opérateur, sur la base de l'angle et/ou de la force de serrage des mâchoires, selon que l'angle de serrage et/ou l'angle des mâchoires actuel est approprié pour sceller et/ou serrer un tissu.
