Title (EN) TISSUE REMOVAL DEVICES, SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS, SYSTÈMES ET MÉTHODES D'ENLÈVEMENT DE TISSU
Abstract:
(EN) A tissue removal device includes a cannula that can aspirate tissue, and a thermal element located at a tip of the cannula that can apply localized heat to the tissue to be aspirated. The tissue removal device may also include a device for applying a vacuum in the cannula, which may be configured for applying vacuum pulses according to a controlled pulse rate and vacuum level. The tissue removal device may also include a device for applying the heat at the tip according to a controllable pulse rate and power level.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'enlèvement de tissu comprenant une canule qui peut aspirer le tissu et un élément thermique situé à une extrémité de la canule qui peut appliquer localement de la chaleur sur le tissu à aspirer. Le dispositif d'enlèvement de tissu peut également comprendre un dispositif permettant d'appliquer un vide dans la canule, laquelle peut être conçue pour appliquer des impulsions à vide selon un taux d'impulsions et un niveau de vide contrôlés. Le dispositif d'enlèvement de tissu peut également comprendre un dispositif permettant d'appliquer de la chaleur à l'extrémité selon un taux d'impulsions et un niveau de puissance contrôlables.
