Title (EN) ELECTROSURGICAL ENERGY CONVEYING STRUCTURE AND ELECTROSURGICAL DEVICE INCORPORATING THE SAME
(FR) STRUCTURE DE TRANSPORT D'ÉNERGIE ÉLECTROCHIRURGICALE ET DISPOSITIF ÉLECTROCHIRURGICAL L'INCORPORANT
Abstract:
(EN) An energy conveying structure for invasive electrosurgery that provide for combined delivery of (i) RF or microwave electromagnetic energy for tissue treatment (e.g. ablation, coagulation or cutting), and (ii) optical radiation within a common structure that may form an instrument cable of a surgical scoping device. The structure resembles a hollow coaxial transmission line with an optical channel formed within it. The optical channel can lie within a passage that is formed within the inner conductive layer or within other layers of the coaxial transmission. The structure may be used to form an electrosurgical device capable of delivering RF/microwave EM energy, optical radiation and ultrasonic signals to a treatment site along an instrument cable of a surgical scoping device.
(FR) L'invention concerne une structure de transport d'énergie pour électrochirurgie invasive qui permet l'administration combinée (i) d'énergie électromagnétique RF ou micro-onde pour le traitement tissulaire (par exemple l'ablation, la coagulation ou la découpe), et (ii) d'un rayonnement optique dans une structure commune qui peut former un câble d'instrument d'un dispositif d'examen chirurgical. La structure ressemble à une ligne de transmission coaxiale creuse avec un canal optique formé à l'intérieur de celle-ci. Le canal optique peut se trouver à l'intérieur d'un passage qui est formé à l'intérieur de la couche conductrice interne ou à l'intérieur d'autres couches de la transmission coaxiale. La structure peut être utilisée pour former un dispositif électrochirurgical capable de délivrer de l'énergie électromagnétique RF/micro-onde, un rayonnement optique et des signaux ultrasonores à un site de traitement le long d'un câble d'instrument d'un dispositif d'examen chirurgical.
