Abstract:     An electrosurgical instrument is disclosed for the treatment of tissue in the presence of an electrically-conductive fluid. The instrument comprises an instrument shaft, and a tissue treatment electrode at one end of the shaft, the tissue treatment electrode being constructed to define thermal barriers for limiting thermal conduction therealong, thereby to encourage the formation and maintenance of a layer of vapor over the electrode.

First Claim:
Show all 20 claims
What is claimed is:     1. An electrosurgical system for the vaporisation of tissue in the presence of an electrically-conductive medium, the system comprising an electrosurgical generator for generating radio frequency power, and an electrosurgical instrument connectible to the generator, wherein:
  • the generator has a radio frequency output stage for delivering radio frequency power to a pair of output connections, which output stage has an open loop output impedance of less than 250 ohms;
  • the electrosurgical instrument comprises an instrument shaft and, situated at a distal end of the shaft, an electrode assembly comprising an active electrode with an exposed treatment portion and a return electrode with an exposed fluid contact surface, the fluid contact surface being set back from the treatment portion so that, when the electrode assembly is brought into an operative position with the treatment portion on or adjacent to the surface of the tissue to be treated, the fluid contact surface is further from the tissue surface than the treatment portion; and
  • the ratio of the surface area of the exposed treatment portion to the surface area of the exposed fluid contact surface is greater than or equal to 0.5 to 1;
  • the electrode assembly further comprising means associated with the active electrode for hindering the dissipation of heat from the active electrode to its surroundings, thereby to encourage the formation and maintenance of a layer of vapour over its surface.
