Title: ENDOSCOPIC NEEDLE CARRIER
Abstract:
The invention relates to an endoscopic needle carrier for handling curved needles, comprising an articulated assembly comprising a first gripper jaw (100) secured to a conduit and a second gripper jaw (200) actuated by the translationally mobile core (300), characterised in that said jaws (100, 200) consist of cylindrical parts which are coaxial with said mobile core (300), said first jaw (100) having a plurality of longitudinally extending peripheral teeth (120, 130, 140), said second jaw (200) consisting of a cylindrical part having a plurality of peripheral teeth (220, 230, 240), and said second jaw (200) being mobile in relation to the first jaw (100) by a longitudinal linear movement between an idle position, where the jaws (100, 200) are spread so as to define a space between the ends of the teeth, which is at least equal to the cross-section of a needle (400), and a closer position where they hold the curved needle (400).
