Title (EN) VIBRATION SENSITIVE ABLATION APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL D'ABLATION SENSIBLE AUX VIBRATIONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An ablation apparatus including a maneuvering mechanism, a conductive element attached to the apparatus, a sensor attached to the apparatus and an output device in communication with the sensor is provided. The sensor senses vibration during the ablation procedure and sends a signal to the output device to reduce power to the conductive element.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil d'ablation comprenant un mécanisme de manoeuvre, un élément conducteur et un capteur fixés à l'appareil et un dispositif de sortie communiquant avec le capteur. Le capteur détecte des vibrations lors de l'ablation et envoie un signal au dispositif de sortie en vue de réduire le courant vers l'élément conducteur.
