Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR INTRODUCING TUMESCENT FLUID TO BODY TISSUE
(FR) PROCEDES ET APPAREIL D'INTRODUCTION D'UN LIQUIDE PAR TUMESCENCE DANS UN TISSU CORPOREL
Abstract:
(EN) A catheter is usable to treat a hollow anatomical structure (HAS). The catheter comprises one or more shafts which extend away from a proximal end of the catheter toward a distal end thereof. The catheter further comprises an HAS constriction energy source located at or near the distal end of the catheter. The catheter further comprises at least one radially expandable transmural fluid delivery channel located in the catheter near the HAS constriction energy source.
(FR) Une sonde sert à traiter une structure anatomique creuse (HAS) et comprend une ou plusieurs tiges s'étendant depuis une extrémité proximale vers une extrémité distale. La sonde comprend aussi une source d'énergie de construction HAS placée sur ou à proximité de l'extrémité distale et au moins un canal d'administration d'un liquide transmural s'étendant radialement placé dans la sonde à proximité de la source d'énergie de construction HAS. source.
