Title
(EN) Surgical accessory clamp and system
Abstract
(EN)

A robotic surgical system for performing a procedure within a sterile field comprises a manipulator arm and a surgical accessory clamp for coupling a surgical accessory to a distal end portion of the manipulator arm. The accessory clamp includes a base for coupling with the distal end portion of the manipulator arm, two clamp jaws with each of the clamp jaws directly and rotatably coupled to the base by respective pivot pins, and a lever operable to move the two clamp jaws between an open position and closed position. The system also includes a sterile drape covering the accessory clamp and the manipulator arm to shield the accessory clamp and the manipulator arm from the sterile field.
