Title
(EN) ABLATION DEVICE WITH LOCKOUT FEATURE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ABLATION AVEC MOYEN DE VERROUILLAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A device for ablating tissue at a desired location in a body, the device comprising: a pair of jaws moveable between a spaced apart open position and a closed position, the pair of jaws comprising at least one ablating element for ablating tissue located between the jaws; a handle comprising controls for remotely controlling the movement of the jaws and the at least one ablative element, wherein the controls for the at least one ablative element comprise a trigger mechanism for applying ablative energy to the at least one ablating element; a neck connecting the jaws and handle; and a lockout mechanism for preventing the trigger mechanism from applying ablative energy when the jaws are in the open position.
(FR)
Dispositif pour l'ablation de tissu à une position donnée dans un corps, le dispositif comprenant : une paire de mâchoires mobiles entre une position ouverte où elles sont espacées et une position fermée, la paire de mâchoires comprenant au moins un élément d'ablation pour l'ablation de tissu situé entre les mâchoires; une poignée comprenant des commandes pour commander à distance le mouvement des mâchoires et ledit élément d'ablation, les commandes dudit élément d'ablation comprenant un mécanisme de gâchette pour appliquer une énergie ablative audit élément d'ablation; un cou reliant les mâchoires et la poignée; et un mécanisme de verrouillage pour empêcher le mécanisme de gâchette d'appliquer l'énergie ablative lorsque les mâchoires sont en position ouverte.
