Title (EN) APPARATUS SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COAGULATING AND CUTTING TISSUE
(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE COAGULATION ET ABLATION DE TISSUS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A combination tissue coagulation and cutting apparatus, system and method for coagulating and cutting tissue. A clamp element includes first and second clamp members having respective first and second porous electrodes, such as sintered metal electrodes. A portion of tissue, such as a blood vessel, is held between the porous electrodes, and fluid from a fluid source can pass through the porous electrodes. The tissue portion can be coagulated when electrical current is applied to the first and second porous electrodes, and an adjustable cutting element that is associated with the clamp members is positioned to cut a segment or all of the coagulated tissue portion. In this manner, the same surgical instrument is used to coagulate and cut tissue.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil, un système et un procédé de coagulation et ablation combinées de tissus destinés à coaguler et couper des tissus. Un ensemble pince comprend un premier et un deuxième élément de pince munis chacun d'une première et d'une deuxième électrode poreuse, par exemple des électrodes en métal fritté. Une partie de tissu, par exemple un vaisseau sanguin, est tenue entre les électrodes poreuses et un fluide venant d'une source de fluide peut passer dans lesdites électrodes poreuses. La partie de tissu peut être coagulée en appliquant un courant électrique aux première et deuxième électrodes poreuses et un élément coupant réglable associé aux éléments de pince est positionné de façon à couper un segment ou la totalité de la partie de tissu coagulé. Le même instrument chirurgical est ainsi utilisé pour coaguler et couper le tissu.
