Title:
BOWED TIP FOR LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/016968
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An irrigation and suction tip (20) for laparoscopic surgery having an increased range of transport within a surgical cavity during laparoscopic surgery. The tip (20) moves in a circumferential trajectory rather than linearly when a surgeon is irrigating and suctioning tissue. The tip is substantially resilient, withstanding great force and pressure during irrigation and suction procedures. The tip (20) is bowed, having a pair of straight portions, a short distal portion (20D) and a long proximal portion (20P) joined by a bowed portion, (20B) the bowed portion allowing the distal portion to rotate, circumscribing a large area. The bow is limited so that the tip moves within a narrow wall of a cannula (14) of a trocar.
