Title (EN) ABLATION CHECK PULSE ROUTINE AND INTEGRATION FOR ELECTROPORATION
(FR) ROUTINE D'IMPULSION DE CONTRÔLE D'ABLATION ET INTÉGRATION POUR ÉLECTROPORATION
Abstract:
(EN) Systems relating to a low-voltage, pre-treatment pulse routine for evaluating a potential for non-target tissue damage from the delivery of energy, such as electroporation energy to an area of target tissue. In one embodiment, a medical system includes a medical device having a treatment element; and a control unit in communication with the medical device, the control unit being configured to: deliver a low- voltage, pre-treatment pulse routine through the treatment element to an area of target tissue; determine whether the low-voltage, pre- treatment pulse routine has a stimulation effect on an area of non- target tissue; and deliver an ablation energy routine through the treatment element to the area of target tissue when the control unit determines that the low-voltage, pre-treatment pulse routine does not have a stimulation effect on the area of non-target tissue.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes se rapportant à une routine d'impulsion de pré-traitement, basse tension, permettant d'évaluer le potentiel d'une lésion de tissu non cible à partir de la distribution d'une énergie, telle qu'une énergie d'électroporation, à une zone de tissu cible. Selon un mode de réalisation, un système médical comprend un dispositif médical ayant un élément de traitement ; et une unité de commande en communication avec le dispositif médical, l'unité de commande étant conçue pour : fournir à une zone de tissu cible une routine d'impulsion de pré-traitement basse tension à travers l'élément de traitement ; déterminer si la routine d'impulsion de pré-traitement, basse tension a un effet de stimulation sur une zone de tissu non cible ; et fournir à la zone de tissu cible une routine d'énergie d'ablation à travers l'élément de traitement lorsque l'unité de commande détermine que la routine d'impulsion de pré-traitement, basse tension n'a pas d'effet de stimulation sur la zone de tissu non cible.
