  • Publication number: 20230404376
    Abstract: Approaches to addressing asymmetric loads at the distal end of a flexible elongate device are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, symmetry is recovered by mechanically redesigning the flexible elongate device to counter the asymmetric load. In other embodiments, symmetry is recovered by altering the controls scheme for managing the control elements in a flexible elongate device. Generally, a flexible elongate device includes a plurality of control elements able to actuate the distal section. The amount of force applied to each control element can be changed so that the plurality of control elements is able to collectively apply a bending moment that counters the asymmetric load.

  • Publication number: 20230123655
    Abstract: According to one aspect, a medical system may include an instrument including an end effector for acting as a monopolar electrode. The end effector may be configured to be positioned in a body of a subject and emit radiofrequency energy towards a target area in the body. The medical system may further include a return electrode. The return electrode may be deliverable within the body proximate the target area and separately from the instrument and the monopolar electrode. The return electrode may be configured to contact tissue in the body proximate the target area and receive radiofrequency energy emitted from the end effector.
