Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0030524A2] An instrument for operating on anatomical tissue includes a barrel having at least one shaft. An end is offset from the shaft. In an insertion position, the end effector is confined within the diametrical dimension of the barrel at a distal end thereof. After insertion, the end effector can be manipulated to extend beyond the diametrical dimension of the barrel to provide a large working span in which tissue can be manipulated.
