Research Facts
First bipolar electrosurgical forceps prototype designed by Canadian Dr. Rioux, who is acknowledged as the first doctor to bring this technique to Canada. Rioux trained at Laval, Quebec and at Johns Hopkins, US also in Paris, France under Dr. Raoul Palmer (1967-68) who used only unipolar electrosurgical forceps in endoscopic surgeries / laparoscopies. Rioux performed the first of these at Johns Hopkins in 1968. Instrument is used for OB/GYN laparoscopic surgeries such as an electrocoagulation of the tubes for sterilization, where a pure coagulating current was applied and burned the tube, instead of previously burning through other areas. Several research articles concerning this Canadian invention by Dr. Rioux, and on the designer are located in the donor file.
