Title: WIRE GUIDING COMPONENT AND ENDOSCOPE COMPRISING AT LEAST ONE PULLING WIRE
Abstract:
The invention refers to a wire guiding component for an endoscope, comprising at least one pulling wire (11B, 109) for actuating an endoscope head deflection. In the wire guiding component (11, 101) a pulling wire guide of the at least one pulling wire (11B, 109) makes a transition from an axially central guide to a guide spaced apart from the axial central axis. The invention further refers to an endoscope in which at least one pulling wire (11B; 109) for actuating an endoscope head deflection is guided axially centrally in the endoscope.
