Title (EN) ELECTROSURGICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) INSTRUMENT ÉLECTRO-CHIRURGICAL
Abstract:
(EN) An electrosurgical vessel sealing device that can seal biological vessels using a confined microwave field that yields a well-defined seal location with low thermal margin. The device comprises a pair of jaws that are movable relative to each other to grip biological tissue. A blade for cutting the gripped tissue is slidable between the jaws. A coplanar microstrip antenna is mounted on the inner surface of one or both of the pair of jaws to emit microwave energy into the gap therebetween. The device may comprise a separate dissector element to enable fine tissue cutting and dissection to be performed.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif électrochirurgical d'étanchéité de vaisseau qui peut sceller des vaisseaux biologiques au moyen d'un champ de micro-ondes confiné qui produit un emplacement d'étanchéité bien défini avec une faible marge thermique. Le dispositif comprend une paire de mâchoires mobiles l'une par rapport à l'autre pour saisir un tissu biologique. Une lame pour couper le tissu saisi peut coulisser entre les mâchoires. Une antenne à microruban coplanaire est montée sur la surface interne d'une ou des deux mâchoires pour émettre une énergie micro-onde dans l'espace se trouvant entre elles. Le dispositif peut comprendre un élément de dissection séparé pour permettre la coupe et dissection fines d'un tissu.
