Title (EN) TRANSVAGINAL UTERINE ARTERY OCCLUSION
(FR) OCCLUSION ARTERIELLE UTERINE TRANSVAGINALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Uterine artery occlusion is performed for the treatment of uterine fibroid using a tool which is introduced through the vaginal wall to the exterior of the uterus. The tool carried clamping elements which may be positioned over the uterine artery. Electrodes or other energy applying devices on the clamping elements may be used to deliver energy to seal the uterine artery. Optionally, the tool may carry ultrasonic, visual, or proximity sensors for detecting the presence of the uterine artery prior to delivering energy.
(FR)Une occlusion artérielle utérine est effectuée pour le traitement de tumeurs fibroïdes utérines au moyen d'un instrument qui est introduit à travers la paroi vaginale vers l'extérieur de l'utérus. Cet instrument porte des éléments de pince qui peuvent être positionnés sur l'artère utérine. Des électrodes ou d'autres dispositifs d'application d'énergie sur ces éléments de pince peuvent être utilisés pour délivrer une énergie destinée à souder l'artère utérine. Eventuellement, cet instrument peut porter des capteurs ultrasoniques, visuels ou de proximité destinés à détecter la présence de l'artère utérine avant l'apport d'énergie.
