3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 8600-6 and the following apply.
endotherapy device consisting of two elements: trocar pin and trocar sleeve to gain internal access and perform endoscopy
trocar pin
endoscopic element with a sharp pyramidal or conical point, typically assembled and used together with a compatible trocar sleeve filling its lumen which allow the introduction of this assembly, used to puncture body cavities
trocar sleeve
endoscopic element used together with a trocar pin to create an artificial orifice for puncturing body cavities
puncture point
tip of a trocar pin
Note ito entry: It may have various designs: conical or pyramidal, sharp or blunt or spiral shape driven.
distal part
different kind of movable jaw parts at the end of an endoscope or an endotherapy device
4.4 Endotherapy device with spring handle for use through a trocar sleeve There are also devices (forceps etc.) with “spring handle” available. These devices have branches without joint, see Figure 7. In this case the inner part has to be moved forward within the sheath to open the branches, or the sheath has to be moved backwards for opening. This means, the user has to take care of the relative movement of the distal part. Another issue is the maximum opening of the branches, which is smaller compared to the branches with joint. The length of closed branches L bc is shorter than the length with open branches L bo .BS ISO 18340 pdf download.
