Abstract
(EN)
An endoprobe for use to effect retinal reattachment is provided. The endoprobe includes a tubular element (28) having proximal and distal ends, at least one optical fiber element (42) disposed within the tubular element (28), and a plurality of laser light outlets (43) defined through a side wall of said tubular element. The at least one optical fiber element (42) is adapted to conduct laser light from the proximal end of the tubular element (28) to the laser light outlets (43), thereby to direct laser light radially of the tubular element.
(FR)
On décrit une endo-sonde utilisée pour recoller des rétines. Cette endo-sonde comprend un élément tubulaire (28) doté d'extrémités proximale et distale, au moins un élément (42) à fibre optique disposé dans l'élément tubulaire (28), et plusieurs sorties (43) pour lumière laser, définies dans une paroi latérale de l'élément tubulaire. Le ou les éléments (42) à fibres optiques sont conçus pour conduire la lumière laser de l'extrémité proximale de l'élément tubulaire (28) aux sorties (43) pour lumière laser, ce qui permet d'orienter la lumière laser dans le sens radial de l'élément tubulaire.
