Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT WITH REMOVABLE PORTION TO FACILITATE CLEANING
(FR) INSTRUMENT CHIRURGICAL COMPORTANT UNE PARTIE AMOVIBLE POUR FACILITER LE NETTOYAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A surgical instrument has an ultrasonic blade (150) that connects to a distal end of an ultrasonic waveguide. A clamp arm assembly (220) is moveable from an opened position for receiving a tissue, toward a closed position for clamping the tissue. A clamp arm actuator connected to the clamp arm assembly directs the clamp arm assembly from the opened position toward the closed position. An outer sheath (9612) surrounds at least a portion of the ultrasonic waveguide. The outer sheath includes a cover (9620) removably received against a sheath body, and a sheath securement feature able to detachably couple the cover to the sheath body such that the cover can be detached from the sheath body for accessing the ultrasonic waveguide within the outer sheath. A device (138) for molding a seal (9302) onto an ultrasonic waveguide (140) is also disclosed.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un instrument chirurgical comportant une lame à ultrasons (150) qui se raccorde à une extrémité distale d'un guide d'ondes ultrasonores. Un ensemble bras de préhension (220) peut passer d'une position ouverte pour recevoir un tissu à une position fermée pour agripper le tissu. Un actionneur de bras de préhension relié à l'ensemble bras de préhension dirige l'ensemble bras de préhension pour le faire passer de la position ouverte vers la position fermée. Une gaine externe (9612) entoure au moins une partie du guide d'ondes ultrasonores. Ladite gaine extérieure comprend un couvercle (9620) monté amovible contre un corps de gaine, et un élément de fixation de gaine apte à accoupler de manière amovible le couvercle au corps de gaine de façon que le couvercle puisse être détaché du corps de gaine pour accéder au guide d'ondes ultrasonores à l'intérieur de la gaine externe. Un dispositif (138) pour mouler un joint d'étanchéité (9302) sur un guide d'ondes ultrasonores (140) est en outre décrit.
