Cosman CSK TC Electrode INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE DESCRIPTION The Cosman Medical CSK Electrodes are temperature-sensing probes for use in the percutaneous treatment of pain. The 5 cm, 10 cm, 15 cm, and 20 cm length thermocouple electrodes are each inserted through the commercially available Radiofrequency (RF) disposable Cannula from Boston Scientific, which are color coded based on length: 5 cm (white), 10 cm (blue), 15 cm (yellow), 20 cm length (green). The TC connecting cable is used to connect the thermocouple electrode to a Cosman RF Generator to stimulate, lesion, and monitor the impedance and temperature of the treatment site. A ground pad is required for stimulation and lesioning using CSK Electrodes. Contact your local Boston Scientific sales support team for other available components and replacement parts. The G4-CO is a cable organizer that consists of plastic hook and loop fastener material with multiple locking tabs and alligator clips at both ends for securing to patient drapes or linens. Each locking tab has an identifying character for easy association with a generator connection port.

INDICATIONS The CSK Electrode is indicated for use in RF heat lesioning of peripheral nerve tissue only. WARNINGS Use only the ground pads provided by Boston Scientific. Failure to do so may result in patient injury or damage to the product. For a patient with a cardiac pacemaker, contact the pacemaker company to determine whether the pacemaker needs to be converted to fixed rate pacing during the radiofrequency procedure. When the pacemaker is in the sensing mode, it may interpret the RF signal as a heartbeat and may fail to pace the heart. Electrodes and probes of monitoring, stimulating, and imaging devices can provide paths for high frequency currents even if they are battery powered, insulated, or isolated at 60 Hz. The risk of burns can be reduced, but not eliminated, by placing the electrodes or probes as far away as possible from the lesion site and from the dispersive electrode. Protective impedances incorporated into the monitoring leads may  further reduce the risk of these burns and permit continuous monitoring during energy delivery. Needles should not be used as monitoring electrodes during such procedures. If any physiological monitoring or other electrical apparatus is to be used on the patient simultaneously with this RF Generator, the safety aspects of the arrangement should be studied and cleared by a biomedical or clinical engineer. Do not modify this product, as modification could result in a safety hazard. Do not interchange components from different electrode kits. Using the wrong component can result in serious patient injury. Do not use a needle as a dispersive electrode, since a needle may cause skin burns at the reference site due to high current densities. Prior to use, visually inspect the electrode for damage or contamination. If the electrode is damaged please contact Boston Scientific customer support team. If the electrode is contaminated, clean and sterilize per the instructions below. Magnification may be necessary for proper visual inspection. Users must adhere to universal precautions when handling or using this device to prevent transmission of diseases. PRECAUTIONS Do not use if the electrode is defective. Discontinue use and contact the Boston Scientific customer support team for further assistance. ADVERSE EVENTS Risks associated with use of CSK Electrodes for the ablation of peripheral nerve tissue include but are not limited to: ▪ Allergic reactions ▪ Unintentional burns ▪ Bleeding ▪ Device failure ▪ Increased pain ▪ Infection ▪ Need for additional treatment ▪ Nerve injury ▪ Paralysis ▪ Tissue/visceral injury ▪ Death SPECIAL HANDLING Do not sharply bend, kink, or stress the CSK Electrode. Avoid draping the electrode over sharp edges. BEFORE YOU BEGIN This product is not provided sterile and requires sterilization prior to use. Ensure that you complete the cleaning and sterilization procedure. INSTRUCTIONS Please read all information carefully prior to using the electrodes, particularly the Operator’s Manual provided with the Cosman RF Generator. Use only Cosman electrodes and accessories with the Cosman RF Generator. Only use a RF electrode compatible with the generator. Since there is a potential hazard of nerve injury, only physicians well trained in RF procedures should use this technique. 1. Position the patient on a radiographic table as necessary for the intended procedure. 2. Place a Cosman Ground Pad (minimum 110 cm² conductive plate area) on the patient at the appropriate site, depending on the procedure, and plug the connector into the black reference jack on the generator. A ground pad must be used to create a closed electrical circuit. Without the ground pad, the electrode monitors temperature but does not stimulate or lesion. Care should be taken to maximize the surface area of the dispersive electrode. The dispersive electrode should be reliably 92227761-01 Content: 92227814 REV A Page 1 of 2  Production  CSK TC Electrode IFU EN Boston Scientific Confidential.
