Title (EN) MEDICAL-TREATMENT ELECTRODE ASSEMBLY AND METHOD FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT
(FR) DISPOSITIFS D'ELECTRODES DE TRAITEMENT MEDICAL ET METHODE DE TRAITEMENT CORRESPONDANT
Abstract:
(EN) One medical-treatment electrode assembly includes a medical-treatment flexible electrode supported on the outer surface of a sidewall of a flexible tube which is insertable into a patient. Another assembly includes two electrodes supported on the outer surface of a flexible tube, wherein a video camera of a flexible endoscope inserted into the tube can view patient tissue between the two electrodes. An additional assembly includes apparatus for moving patient tissue into a sidewall opening of a tube which supports a medical-treatment electrode to tighten patient tissue outside the tube against the medical-treatment electrode. A method for medical treatment includes moving patient tissue into a sidewall opening of a tube which supports a medical-treatment electrode to tighten patient tissue outside the tube into substantially full contact with the medical-treatment electrode.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'électrodes de traitement médical qui comprend une électrode flexible de traitement supportée sur la surface externe du flanc d'un tube flexible insérable dans le corps d'un patient. Un autre dispositif comprend deux électrodes supportées sur la surface externe d'un tube flexible, ce qui permet à une caméra d'endoscope flexible inséré dans le tube de filmer les tissus du patient entre les deux électrodes. Un autre dispositif comprend un appareil permettant de déplacer les tissus d'un patient dans une ouverture du flanc d'un tube qui supporte une électrode de traitement médical, afin de resserrer les tissus du patient à l'extérieur du tube contre l'électrode de traitement. Une méthode de traitement médical consiste à déplacer les tissus d'un patient dans une ouverture du flanc d'un tube qui supporte une électrode de traitement médical afin de resserrer les tissus du patient à l'extérieur du tube pour les mettre en contact substantiellement étroit avec l'électrode de traitement.
