Abstract: front page image
(EN)An electrosurgical balloon includes an inflatable balloon body formed of a non-conductive substrate material. One or more electrodes are disposed on an exterior surface of the balloon body. The electrodes can include a pair of bipolar electrodes, and the balloon body can have at least one fluid outlet hole configured to provide fluid to the pair of bipolar electrodes. A second inflatable balloon body can be disposed inside the first inflatable balloon body. The electrosurgical balloon can be incorporated into a catheter assembly, in which the electrosurgical balloon is a balloon electrode tip at a distal end of a catheter.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ballonnet électro-chirurgical qui comprend un corps de ballonnet gonflable constitué d'un matériau de substrat non conducteur. Une ou plusieurs électrodes sont disposées sur une surface extérieure du corps de ballonnet. Les électrodes peuvent comprendre une paire d'électrodes bipolaires, et le corps de ballonnet peut avoir au moins un trou de sortie de fluide configuré pour adresser un fluide à la paire d'électrodes bipolaires. Un second corps de ballonnet gonflable peut être disposé à l'intérieur du premier corps de ballonnet gonflable. Le ballonnet électro-chirurgical peut être incorporé dans un ensemble cathéter, dans lequel le ballonnet électro-chirurgical est une pointe d'électrode de ballonnet à une extrémité distale d'un cathéter.
