Abstract
(EN)
An endoscope includes a shaft having proximal and distal ends and a longitudinal axis therebetween. A handle is coupled to the proximal end of the shaft, and an image sensor is carried on the distal end of the shaft. A channel extends through at least a distal shaft portion and has a channel diameter, and a section of the channel is re-configurable between a constricted shape and a non-constricted shape to accommodate tools introduced therethrough. The combined diagonal dimension and channel diameter is usually greater than the outer shaft diameter. The image sensor may be connected to a connector on the housing by a first slack flex circuit and a lights source on the shaft may be connected to a connector on the housing by a second slack flex circuit.

L'invention concerne un endoscope comprenant une tige ayant des extrémités proximale et distale et un axe longitudinal entre celles-ci. Une poignée est couplée à l'extrémité proximale de la tige et un capteur d'image est porté sur l'extrémité distale de la tige. Un canal s'étend à travers au moins une partie de tige distale et a un diamètre de canal, et une section du canal est reconfigurable entre une forme rétrécie et une forme non rétrécie pour recevoir des outils introduits à travers celle-ci. La dimension diagonale et le diamètre de canal combinés sont généralement supérieurs au diamètre de tige externe. Le capteur d'image peut être connecté à un connecteur sur le boîtier par un premier circuit souple de relâchement et une source de lumière sur la tige peut être connectée à un connecteur sur le boîtier par un second circuit souple de relâchement.
