Title (EN) ELECTROSURGICAL DEVICES FOR TONSILLECTOMY AND ADENOIDECTOMY
(FR) DISPOSITIFS D'ÉLECTROCHIRURGIE POUR AMYGDALECTOMIES PALATINE ET PHARYNGIENNE
Abstract:
(EN) Monopolar electro surgery devices adapted for resecting tonsil and adenoid tissue. The devices minimize thermal injury by employing a plasma generated by pulsed electrical signals to precisely and effectively cut or coagulate the tissues. Suction may also be applied to the tissues to enhance the cutting, coagulation, and tissue manipulation functions. The devices include an interchangeable tip that may be switched for another tip, depending on which tip may be more suitable for tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs d'électrochirurgie unipolaires destinés à la résection de tissu des amygdales palatine et pharyngienne. Ces dispositifs minimisent la lésion thermique grâce à l'emploi d'un plasma généré par des signaux électriques pulsés de façon à couper ou coaguler efficacement et avec précision les tissus. Une aspiration peut être appliquée aux tissus pour améliorer les fonctions de coupe, de coagulation, et de manipulation du tissu. Les dispositifs comportent une pointe interchangeable qui peut être remplacée par une autre pointe, de façon à disposer du type de pointe le plus approprié à l'amygdalectomie envisagée: amygdalectomie palatine ou amygdalectomie pharyngienne.
