Abstract

Radio Frequency Medical Vessel Sealers need a method to electrically connect the electrode to contact/cable. This design would utilize a plastic extrusion where a braided copper wire with minimum inner diameter would be extruded with an outer thermoplastic material such as PEEK so that the copper is exposed from the inside of the tube but not the outside. The electrode tail in the jaw would then be pushed into the ID of the tube making contact with the copper. At the contact end a rod would be inserted into the extrusion then pushed into the contact teeth.
