Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR THE TREATMENT OF HOLLOW ANATOMICAL STRUCTURES
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET METHODE DE TRAITEMENT DE STRUCTURES ANATOMIQUES CREUSES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of treating hollow anatomical structures, for example varicose veins. The method comprises: providing an elongate radiation applicator, the elongate applicator including an emitter, the emitter being coupled to a source of microwave radiation and being adapted to emit said radiation; introducing the applicator into a hollow anatomical structure, the hollow anatomical structure including a section of target tissue; traversing the applicator past the section of target tissue while said emitter emits microwave radiation of a predetermined intensity into said section. Techniques are used (markings on the coaxial cable in conjunction with an audible tone) so that the user makes the traversal at a predetermined rate so that uniform application of the radiation to the tissue, and effective occlusion, occurs. An applicator for performing the treatment is also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne une méthode de traitement de structures anatomiques creuses, par exemple, des varices. Cette méthode consiste à fournir un applicateur de rayonnements allongé pourvu d'un émetteur qui est couplé à une source de rayonnements de micro-ondes et qui est conçu pour émettre lesdits rayonnements, à introduire l'applicateur dans une structure anatomique creuse comportant une section de tissu cible, à faire traverser l'applicateur dans la section de tissu cible, tandis que l'émetteur émet des rayonnements de micro-ondes d'une intensité prédéterminée dans ladite section. Des techniques sont utilisées (marquages sur le câble coaxial conjointement à un signal d'appel audible), de telle manière que l'utilisateur effectue la traversée à un taux prédéterminé, afin que se produise l'application uniforme des rayonnements vers le tissu et l'occlusion effective. Ladite invention a aussi trait à un applicateur servant à réaliser le traitement.
