Title (EN) CONTROLLED OPTICAL PROPERTIES VITREOUS ENAMEL COMPOSITION FOR ELECTROSURGICAL TOOL
(FR) COMPOSITION D'ÉMAIL VITREUX À PROPRIÉTÉS OPTIQUES MAÎTRISÉES POUR OUTIL ÉLECTROCHIRURGICAL
Abstract:
(EN) A vitreous enamel coating for an electrosurgical metal cutting blade, in which incident light striking the vitreous enamel coating is diffusely reflected or absorbed, and the vitreous enamel coating exhibits a 60° gloss value less than 100 gloss units as measured according to ASTM D523-14, Standard Test Method for Specular Gloss. The coating reduces glare from light sources such as a nearby plasma-mediated discharge, operating theater lights or lights provided on an electrosurgery apparatus. The coating may also lessen interference with markers, sensors or other instruments designed to measure light emitted by or passing through nearby tissue such as by transillumination.
(FR) L'invention concerne un revêtement d'émail vitreux destiné à une lame de coupe métallique électrochirurgicale et caractérisé en ce qu'une lumière incidente frappant le revêtement d'émail vitreux est réfléchie ou absorbée de manière diffuse, et en ce que ce revêtement d'émail vitreux présente une valeur de brillance de 60° inférieure à 100 unités de brillance, telle que mesurée selon le procédé d'essai standard ASTM D523-14 pour la brillance spéculaire. Le revêtement réduit l'éblouissement provenant de sources lumineuses telles qu'une décharge à médiation par plasma proche, des lumières de salle d'opération ou des lumières disposées sur un appareil d'électrochirurgie. Ce revêtement peut également atténuer l'interférence avec des marqueurs, capteurs ou autres instruments conçus pour mesurer la lumière émise par un tissu proche ou traversant ce dernier, par exemple par transillumination.
