Abstract: front page image
(EN)


One medical-treatment electrode assembly includes a medical-treatment flexible
electrode supported on the outer surface of a sidewall of a flexible tube
which is insertable into a patient. Another assembly includes two electrodes
supported on the outer surface of a flexible tube, wherein a video camera of a
flexible endoscope inserted into the tube can view patient tissue between the
two electrodes. An additional assembly includes apparatus for moving patient
tissue into a sidewall opening of a tube which supports a medical-treatment
electrode to tighten patient tissue outside the tube against the medical-
treatment electrode. A method for medical treatment includes moving patient
tissue into a sidewall opening of a tube which supports a medical-treatment
electrode to tighten patient tissue outside the tube into substantially full
contact with the medical-treatment electrode.
