Title: SURGICAL INTRODUCER WITH GUIDANCE SYSTEM RECEPTACLE
Abstract:
A surgical introducer system having a sidewall that forms an introducer passage, and a probe receptacle located at the distal end of the introducer. The probe receptacle has an inner surface having a first lateral size at a proximal receptacle end and a second lateral size in the lateral direction at the distal receptacle end, and the first lateral size is greater than the second lateral size. The inner surface receives the distal tip of a navigation probe and restricts movement of the distal probe tip in the lateral direction, and the sidewall is spaced from the navigation probe shaft to allow the shaft to move in the lateral direction within the passage when the distal probe tip is positioned in the probe receptacle.
