Title
(DE) CHIRURGISCHE ZUBEHÖRKLEMME UND SYSTEM
(EN) SURGICAL ACCESSORY CLAMP AND SYSTEM
(FR) PINCE ET SYSTEME POUR ACCESSOIRES CHIRURGICAUX
Abstract
(EN)
A surgical accessory clamp, method of use, and a robotic surgical system including the clamp are disclosed. A surgical accessory may be attached and removed from a manipulator arm during a surgical procedure without requiring the use of an intermediate sterile accessory clamp, thus removing the need for a detachable accessory mount or adaptor that needs cleaning and sterilization and allowing for greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The present invention further allows for easy removal and attachment of instruments, tools, or accessories to the robotic surgical system without breach of sterility.

(FR)
cette invention concerne un pince pour accessoires chirurgicaux, son mode d'utilisation et un système robotique chirurgical comprenant ladite pince. Un accessoire chirurgical peut être fixé sur un bras manipulateur ou en être retiré en cours d'intervention sans recours à une pince intermédiaire stérile pour accessoires, ce qui rend superflu l'emploi d'un dispositif ou d'un adaptateur de montage déposable qui doit être nettoyé et stérilisé, et se traduit par une plus grande efficacité pour un meilleur rapport coût-efficacité. De plus, la présente invention facilite la dépose et la pose d'instruments, outils ou accessoires sur le système robotique sans compromettre la stérilité.
