Title (EN) INTEGRATED PROBE AND ANOSCOPE FOR ELECTRICAL CURRENT THERAPY OF TISSUE
(FR) SONDE INTÉGRÉE ET ANUSCOPE POUR LE TRAITEMENT ÉLECTRIQUE D'UN TISSU
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed herein is a surgical tool (10', 10") for use in surgical removal of hemorrhoidal tissue (50). The surgical tool includes an anoscope (51', 51") with a proximal end (55', 55") and a distal end (57). The anoscope (51' 51") has a slot (53) near the distal end (57) to receive the hemorrhoidal tissue (50). The surgical tool also includes a probe (16) for delivering electrical current to the hemorrhoidal tissue (50). The probe (16) includes a base (48) with a distal end and a proximal end and elongated probe electrodes (36, 38) extending from the distal end of the base. The probe (16) is removably attached to the anoscope (51', 51") such that distal ends (37, 39) of the elongated probe electrodes (36, 38) are positioned within the slot (53) for electricity-conducting engagement with said hemorrhoidal tissue (50).
(FR) L'invention concerne un outil chirurgical (10', 10") destiné à être utilisé pour la résection chirurgicale du tissu hémorroïdaire (50). L'outil chirurgical comprend un anuscope (51', 51") doté d'une extrémité proximale (55', 55") et d'une extrémité distale (57). L'anuscope (51', 51") comporte une fente (53) située à proximité de l'extrémité distale (57) et destinée à recevoir le tissu hémorroïdaire (50). L'outil chirurgical comprend également une sonde (16) délivrant un courant électrique au tissu hémorroïdaire (50). La sonde (16) comprend une base (48) comportant une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale, et des électrodes de sonde allongées (36, 38) partant de l'extrémité distale de la base. La sonde (16) est fixée de manière amovible à l'anuscope (51', 51") de sorte que les extrémités distales (37, 39) des électrodes de sonde allongées (36, 38) soient situées à l'intérieur de la fente (53) pour une mise en prise électroconductrice avec ledit tissu hémorroïdaire (50).
