A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240024185A1) describes a surgical sleeve accessory designed to improve surgical procedures. The accessory consists of a tubular body made of woven strands of material in a braided construction, with a helix angle measured between the central longitudinal axis and the material strands. At a collection point distal to the distal end of the tubular body, the distal ends of the material strands are gathered, enhancing the functionality of the accessory.

Additionally, the accessory includes a U-shaped tension frame with a connector at the distal side, which tensions the material strands. A ball joint and an L-shaped surgical boot are also part of the accessory, with the distal ends of the material strands extending around the surgical boot to the collection point. The helix angle of the material strands falls within the range of 20° to 70°, with a specific angle of 45° specified in the patent claims. These features aim to provide improved control and maneuverability during surgical procedures, potentially enhancing the overall surgical experience for medical professionals and patients alike.
