Title (EN) STEERABLE MICRO-ENDOSCOPE HAVING AN ELECTRO-SURGERY TOOL AND ZIP-CATHETER
(FR) MICRO-ENDOSCOPE ORIENTABLE POSSÉDANT UN OUTIL ÉLECTRO-CHIRURGICAL, ET CATHÉTER À GLISSIÈRE
Abstract:
(EN) A steerable micro-endoscope comprising a cylindrical elongated member having at least a first lumen, a tensioning wire running in the first lumen and attached at the distal end of the elongated member; the elongated member having a proximal portion and a distal portion, having respectively a first durometer and a second durometer lower than the first durometer; the first lumen being arranged such that the distal portion of the elongated body bends when the tensioning wire is pulled; wherein the elongated member comprises a second lumen; an electrode wire being arranged in the second lumen such that the distal end of the electrode wire does not protrude from the distal portion of the elongated member when the elongated member is not bent, and such that the distal end of the electrode wire protrudes from the distal portion of the elongated member when the elongated member is bent.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un micro-endoscope orientable comprenant un élément allongé cylindrique qui possède au moins une première lumière, un fil de tension s'étendant dans la première lumière et fixé au niveau de l'extrémité distale de l'élément allongé, ledit élément allongé possédant une partie proximale et une partie distale, qui présentent respectivement un premier duromètre et une seconde duromètre inférieur au premier. La première lumière est agencée de telle sorte que la partie distale du corps allongé se plie lorsque le fil de tension est tiré. L'élément allongé comprend une seconde lumière. Un fil d'électrode est agencé dans la seconde lumière, de sorte que l'extrémité distale du fil d'électrode ne fait pas saillie depuis la partie distale de l'élément allongé lorsque l'élément allongé n'est pas courbé, et de sorte que l'extrémité distale du fil d'électrode fait saillie à partir de la partie distale de l'élément allongé lorsque l'élément allongé est courbé.
