Title (EN) ABLATION CATHETER WITH SENSOR SYSTEM FOR DETECTING THE ABLATION SUCCESS
(FR) CATHÉTER D’ABLATION COMPRENANT UN SYSTÈME DE DÉTECTION POUR DÉTECTER LA RÉUSSITE DE L’ABLATION
(DE) ABLATIONSKATHETER MIT SENSORIK ZUR ERFASSUNG DES ABLATIONSERFOLGES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an ablation catheter (12) for ablation of biological tissue, comprising at least one optical fiber (14) for transporting laser light along the ablation catheter (12) and at least one coupling-out region (18) for decoupling the laser light transported by the optical fiber (14) from the catheter, wherein a sensor system is designed to continuously detect parameters, from which the ablation success can be determined.
(FR) Cathéter d’ablation (12) pour réaliser l'ablation de tissus biologiques, comprenant au moins une fibre optique (14) pour acheminer de la lumière laser le long du cathéter d'ablation (12) et au moins une zone de sortie (18) pour faire sortir la lumière laser acheminée par la fibre optique (14) hors du cathéter, un système de détection étant conçu pour détecter en continu des paramètres à partir desquels la réussite de l'ablation peut être déterminée.
(DE) Ablationskatheter (12) zur Ablation biologischen Gewebes, mit mindestens einer optischen Faser (14) zum Transport von Laserlicht entlang des Ablationskatheters (12) und mindestens einem Auskoppelbereich (18) zum Auskoppeln des von der optischen Faser (14) transportierten Laserlichts aus dem Katheter, wobei eine Sensorik dazu ausgebildet ist, Parameter, aus denen der Ablationserfolg ermittelt werden kann, kontinuierlich zu erfassen.
