Title (EN) SURGICAL INSTRUMENT CONNECTORS AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) RACCORDS D'INSTRUMENTS CHIRURGICAUX ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Connectors for connecting or linking one instrument or object to one or more other instruments or objects are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a connector can include a first arm with a first attachment feature for attaching to a first object, such as a surgical access device, and a second arm with a second attachment feature for attaching to a second object, such as a support. The connector can have an unlocked state, in which the position and orientation of the access device can be adjusted relative to the support, and a locked state in which movement of the access device relative to the support is prevented or limited. Locking the connector can also be effective to clamp or otherwise attach the connector to the access device and the support, or said attachment can be independent of the locking of the connector.
(FR) L'invention concerne des raccords pour raccorder ou relier un instrument ou un objet à un ou plusieurs autres instruments ou objets. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un raccord peut comprendre un premier bras doté d'un premier élément de fixation destiné à être fixé à un premier objet, tel qu'un dispositif d'accès chirurgical, et un second bras doté d'un second élément de fixation destiné à être fixé à un second objet, tel qu'un support. Le raccord peut avoir un état déverrouillé, dans lequel la position et l'orientation du dispositif d'accès peuvent être ajustées par rapport au support, et un état verrouillé dans lequel le mouvement du dispositif d'accès par rapport au support est empêché ou limité. Le verrouillage du raccord peut également être efficace pour serrer ou fixer autrement le raccord au dispositif d'accès et au support, ou ladite fixation peut être indépendante du verrouillage du raccord.
