Title (EN) LOCALIZED HEAT APPLYING MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF MEDICAL POUR L'APPLICATION DE CHALEUR LOCALISEE
Abstract:
(EN) A medical device for applying localized heat to a portion of a patient's body. Generally, the device includes a light transmitting conduit (12) and a heat generating element (18) which converts transmitted light into heat. A suitable exterior tube (158) can also be provided for guidance, strength and delivery of fluids. The medical device can be used to cauterize or destroy tissue, or alter or remove deposits (154) from lumens. The medical device can also serve as part of a system which provides the light and measures the temperature of the element.
(FR) Dispositif médical pour l'application de chaleur localisée sur une partie du corps d'un patient. Ce dispositif comprend généralement un conduit de transmission de lumière (12) et un élément de formation de chaleur (18) convertissant la lumière transmise en chaleur. Un tube extérieur approprié (158) peut également être prévu pour la conduite, la concentration et la distribution de fluides. Le dispositif médical peut être utilisé pour cautériser ou détruire un tissu, ou bien pour modifier ou enlever des dépôts (154) de passages. Le dispositif médical peut aussi être une partie d'un système fournissant la lumière et mesurant la température de l'élément.
