AbstractAn apparatus comprises an electrode operating member which is disposed within the distal end portion of an electrically insulating flexible tube which is adapted to be inserted into a coeloma. A plurality of electrodes for treating an affected part are attached to the electrode operating member, which is in turn moved by an operating wire passing through the tube, thereby enabling a movement of the electrodes out of or back into an opening formed in the end of the flexible tube. A high frequency current is supplied to the electrodes through the operating wire or a separate power cable.
