Abstract (en)

[origin: WO02085221A1] The invention relates to a surgical-clip applicator (1) comprising a handle (2) with an actuating device (4), a tubular shaft (6), which is fixed to the handle and in which a push rod (8) that can be displaced longitudinally by the actuating device (4) and returned to its original position by means of a spring force, is located. The invention also comprises an interchangeable head part (17) on the distal end of the tubular shaft (6), said part containing a clip magazine (12) that holds several clips (10), and a closing element (14) for the clips (10) on the distal end (16) of the head part (17). The push rod (8) in the proximal part (20) of the tubular shaft (6) acts on a spring-loaded plunger element (25), which is located in the head part (17) and is connected to a transport slide (24) for the clips (10) in the clip magazine (12). The invention is characterised in that a detent element (54) is located between the push rod (8) and the plunger element (25).
