Title
(EN) VARIABLE SIZE APPARATUS FOR SUPPORTING DIAGNOSTIC AND/OR THERAPEUTIC ELEMENTS IN CONTACT WITH TISSUE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE DIMENSION VARIABLE POUR SUPPORTER DES ELEMENTS DE DIAGNOSTIC ET/OU THERAPEUTIQUES EN CONTACT AVEC UN TISSU
Abstract
(EN) A probe that facilitates the creation of circumferential lesions in body structures that may vary in size, comprising: a probe body defining a distal region ; a plurality of splines associated with the distal region of the probe body and each having an operative element support section and a distal end that is not connected to the other splines; the splines together defining a substantially closed shape and being moveable between at least a first orientation where the substantially closed shape has a first size and a second orientation where the substantially closed shape has a second size that is smaller than the first size, and at least one operative element supported on at least one of the operative element support sections .
(FR) La présente invention concerne une sonde qui facilite la création de lésions circonférentielles dans des structures du corps qui peuvent varier en dimension, comprenant: un corps de sonde définissant une région distale; une pluralité de cannelures associées avec la région distale du corps de sonde et ayant chacune une section de support d’élément fonctionnel et une extrémité distale qui n’est pas connectée aux autres cannelures; les cannelures définissant ensemble une forme sensiblement fermée et étant mobiles entre au moins une première orientation où la forme sensiblement fermée a une première dimension et une deuxième orientation où la forme sensiblement fermée a une deuxième dimension qui est plus petite que la première dimension, et au moins un élément fonctionnel supporté sur au moins une des sections de support d’élément fonctionnel.
