Thus, at field strength of 10 MW/cm at the tip electrode
, clusters of microbubbles were observed near the electrode, within which microdischarges characterized by luminescence in the liquid occurred.
The site of fracture in this case, which is a transition from ring to tip electrode
of the atrial lead, rules out any possible role of surrounding skeletal structures, such as in cases of rib/clavicle/pocket fractures.
Over time, I also used a monopolar loop and a bipolar microtip instrument (Versapoint bipolar spring tip electrode
, Ethicon Gynecare) to transect the uterine septum.
The Total Tip Cooling Design is intended to consistently cool the entire tip electrode
during radiofrequency energy delivery, resulting in reduced coagulum at the proximal edges of the tip.
The tip electrode
was connected to the high voltage source and placed 10 mm from the low voltage plane electrode.
The phoenix Tuff Tip electrode
is constructed with a proprietary reference junction and a ragged pH bulb.
Total Tip Cooling Technology is intended to offer consistent cooling of the entire ablation tip electrode
throughout radiofrequency energy delivery.
