Title (EN) MEDICAL DEVICE HAVING AN INCREMENTALLY DISPLACEABLE ELECTRODE
(FR) INSTRUMENT MEDICAL POURVU D'UNE ELECTRODE A DEPLACEMENT PROGRESSIF
Abstract:
(EN) A medical device in one embodiment includes an electrode (12) which is connected to a flexible, tubular, movable member, such as a catheter shaft (14) or an outer sheath, which is slidably extended over a guide wire, flexible shaft, or other tubular member. A displacement mechanism is connected to the movable member, and may be actuated one or more times to displace the movable member in successive, predetermined increments, for creating a linear lesion or for performing diagnostic functions.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument médical comprenant, dans un mode de réalisation, une électrode (12) connectée à un élément flexible, tubulaire et mobile, tel qu'une tige (14) de cathéter ou une gaine extérieure, s'étendant de manière coulissante sur un fil-guide, une tige flexible ou un autre élément tubulaire. Un mécanisme de déplacement est connecté à l'élément mobile et il peut être actionné une ou plusieurs fois de manière à déplacer l'élément mobile selon des augmentations, successives et prédéterminées afin de former une lésion linéaire ou afin de procéder au diagnostic.
