Title (EN) ELECTROSURGICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) INSTRUMENT ÉLECTROCHIRURGICAL
Abstract:
(EN) An electrosurgical instrument is disclosed for making incisions and other treatments using electrosurgery. The electrosurgical instrument comprises a body having at least one conductive element that is surrounded by an insulation layer except at a conductor edge or tip portion of the conductive element. The conductor edge or tip portion and insulation layer each having unique geometric shapes and composition of the parts to reduce or eliminate the production of smoke and eschar and reduce tissue damage. The outer profile of the insulation layer and conductive element are configured to facilitate the flow of electrosurgical decomposition products away from the conductor edge or tip where they are formed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument électrochirurgical servant à faire des incisions et à mettre en oeuvre d'autres traitements électrochirurgicaux. Cet instrument comprend un corps qui comporte au moins un élément conducteur entouré d'une couche isolante, à l'exception d'un bord conducteur ou d'une partie de pointe de l'élément conducteur. Le bord conducteur ou la partie de pointe et la couche isolante présentent chacun(e) des éléments aux formes géométriques et à la composition uniques, qui permettent de réduire ou d'éliminer la production de fumée et d'escarres, et de réduire les lésions tissulaires. Le profil extérieur de la couche isolante et de l'élément conducteur est conçu de manière à éloigner le flux des produits électrochirurgicaux de décomposition formés sur le bord conducteur ou sur la pointe.
