Title (EN) BRACHYTHERAPY INSTRUMENT AND METHODS
(FR) INSTRUMENT ET PROCEDES DE CURIETHERAPIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A brachytherapy instrument and method is disclosed for delivering therapeutic substances, such as radioactive seeds, to internal organs, such as the prostate. The instrument includes a needle (602) and stylet (604) which are capable of reciprocating relative to one another, but which can be selectively fixed against such movement. The needle (602) is loaded with radioactive seeds, and the stylet (604) advances the seeds to the distal end of the needle (602).
(FR)La présente invention concerne un instrument et un procédé de curiethérapie, permettant de délivrer des substances thérapeutiques, telles que des grains radioactifs, à des organes internes, tels que la prostate. Ledit instrument comprend une aiguille (602) et un stylet (604) qui sont capables d'effectuer un mouvement de va-et-vient l'un par rapport à l'autre, mais qui peuvent être immobilisés de façon sélective à l'encontre d'un tel mouvement. Ladite aiguille (602) est chargée de grains radioactifs et le stylet (604) permet de faire avancer ces grains jusqu'à l'extrémité distale de l'aiguille (602).
