Title (EN) ELECTROSURGICAL HEMOSTATS FOR ATRIAL TREATMENT AND METHOD
(FR) PINCES HEMOSTATIQUES ELECTROCHIRURGICALES DESTINEES AU TRAITEMENT AURICULAIRE ET PROCEDE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of and a system for treatment of atrial tachyarrhythmias. The system includes a set of hemostats having elongated opposing jaws carrying mechanisms for applying ablation energy along the jaws. The jaws having straight and curved configurations selected to allow arrangement of the jaws of along opposite sides of walls of a patient's atrium. Treatment is accomplished by applying of ablation energy to the walls of a patient's artria to create lines of lesion corresponding generally to incisions employed in a Maze type procedure.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant de traiter les tachyarythmies auriculaires. Le système de l'invention comprend un ensemble de pinces hémostatiques comportant des mâchoires allongées opposées qui portent les mécanismes permettant d'appliquer l'énergie d'ablation le long des mâchoires. Lesdites mâchoires possèdent des configurations droites et incurvées choisies pour permettre leur positionnement le long des côtés opposés des parois de l'oreillette d'un patient. On réalise le traitement en appliquant une énergie d'ablation sur les parois des oreillettes d'un patient afin de créer des lignes de lésion correspondant généralement aux incisions employées dans la procédure de type Maze.
