Title (EN) APPARATUS, SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DELIVERING RADIO FREQUENCY ENERGY TO A TREATMENT SITE
(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'APPORT D'ENERGIE HF SUR UN SITE DE TRAITEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) Described are apparatus, systems, and methods for delivering RF energy to a treatment site. The therapeutic system includes an RF power supply (32), and an RF therapeutic probe (17). The probe (17) includes at least one distal electrode (20) and a proximal power supply connector (25). A control circuit (42) is provided for controlling the amount of RF power supplied to the electrode (20). The control circuit (42) is formed upon connection of the connector (25) to the power supply (32).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil, des systèmes et des procédés d'apport d'énergie HF sur un site de traitement. Ce système thérapeutique comporte une alimentation électrique HF (32) et une sonde thérapeutique HF (17). Cette sonde (17) est constituée d'au moins une électrode distale (20) et d'un connecteur proximal (25) d'alimentation électrique. Un circuit de régulation (42) assure la régulation de la quantité d'électricité HF fournie à l'électrode (20). Ce circuit de régulation (42) se trouve sur le raccordement reliant le connecteur (25) à l'alimentation électrique (32).
