Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1265(5), Dec 31



An ultrasonic surgical instrument having a handle with a finger actuator, and more particularly, an ultrasonic surgical device adapted to be held by a surgeon and fingers-operated with precise movements while opening and closing an ultrasonic instrument while meeting the ergonomic requirements of the surgeon with regard to comfort and imparting the surgeon with an enhanced dextral control for easy maneuverability of the instrument. The instrument incorporates a thimble-shaped lever at the distal end of the handle for actuating the clamp arm of the ultrasonic surgical instrument, and votator structure for selective rotation of the surgical device whereby the ergonomic thimble-shaped lever and pencil grip provide the physician with an improved degree of control, greater comfort in manipulating the instrument, and the ability to perform blunt dissections.
