Title (EN) ORBITAL TISSUE RETRACTOR
(FR) ÉCARTEUR DE TISSU ORBITAL
Abstract:
(EN) An orbital tissue retractor 10 for use in a surgical operation in the region of an eye socket, comprises an orbital tissue retractor body 12 and a handle 14 extending therefrom for manipulation of the tissue retractor body by a surgeon. The tissue retractor body comprises a channel formation 16 defining a channel 17. The channel formation 16 has a pair of spaced side wall sections 24 which define concave curved ocular abutment formations 26 which conform to an anatomical curvature of the ocular globe for abutment with the ocular globe N. The tissue retractor body has open proximal end 22 and an open distal end 20. The tissue retractor body tapers from the proximal end to the distal end, with a portion of the channel formation at the distal end being curved so as to accommodate and cradle the optic nerve therein. The retractor body has a curved base wall section 28 conforming to an anatomical curvature of the orbit.
(FR) L'invention concerne un écarteur 10 de tissu orbital destiné à être utilisé dans une opération chirurgicale dans la région d'une orbite oculaire, comprenant un corps 12 d'écarteur de tissu orbital et une poignée 14 s'étendant à partir de celui-ci pour la manipulation du corps d'écarteur de tissu par un chirurgien. Le corps d'écarteur de tissu comprend une formation 16 de canal définissant un canal 17. La formation 16 de canal présente une paire de sections 24 de paroi latérale espacées qui définissent des formations 26 de butée oculaire incurvées concaves qui se conforment à une courbure anatomique du globe oculaire pour venir en butée avec le globe oculaire N. Le corps d'écarteur de tissu présente une extrémité proximale 22 ouverte et une extrémité distale 20 ouverte. Le corps d'écarteur de tissu se rétrécit de l'extrémité proximale à l'extrémité distale, une partie de la formation de canal au niveau de l'extrémité distale étant incurvée de façon à recevoir et à entourer le nerf optique en son sein. Le corps d'écarteur présente une section 28 de paroi de base incurvée se conformant à une courbure anatomique de l'orbite.
