Title (EN) PHOTOABLATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE PHOTOABLATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Methods and apparatus are disclosed for forming annular lesions in tissue. The methods include introduction of an optical apparatus proximate to a tissue site, via, for example, a catheter. The optical apparatus includes a pattern-forming optical waveguide in communication with a light transmitting optical fiber. Energy is transmitted through the optical fiber, such that radiation is propagated through the optical fiber and the waveguide projects an annular light pattern, e.g., a circle or a halo.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs destinés à former des lésions annulaires dans le tissu. Les procédés consistent à introduire un dispositif optique au voisinage d'un site tissulaire, notamment par l'intermédiaire d'un cathéter. Ce dispositif optique comprend un guide d'onde optique de formation de motif en communication avec une fibre optique de transmission de lumière. De l'énergie est transmise via la fibre optique de manière qu'un rayonnement soit propagé à travers la fibre optique, le guide d'onde projetant alors un motif lumineux annulaire tel qu'un cercle ou un halo.
