Title (EN) ANCHORABLE GUIDEWIRE
(FR) FIL DE GUIDAGE ANCRABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An anchorable guidewire (10) for use in various medical applications, said guidewire comprising an elongate guidewire body (12) with at least one inflatable anchoring member or balloon (14) positioned thereon and a deactuatable check valve (16) operative to maintain inflation of the inflatable anchoring member or balloon (14) until such time as the check valve (16) is volitionally deactuated by a human operator. The inflatable anchoring member or balloon (14) is preferably sized, constructed and configured such that, when fully deflated, the anchoring member or balloon (14) will fully collapse against the outer surface of the guidewire without substantial protrusion or extension therebeyond.
(FR)Fil de guidage ancrable (10) ayant diverses applications médicales et comportant un corps allongé (12) sur lequel est monté au moins un élément ou ballonnet gonflable d'ancrage (14), un clapet de retenue (16) étant prévu pour maintenir l'état gonflé dudit élément ou ballonnet (14) jusqu'à ce que le fonctionnement dudit clapet soit délibéremment arrêté par un opérateur humain. De préférence, l'élément ou ballonnet gonflable d'ancrage (14) est dimensionné, construit et configuré de telle sorte que, lorsqu'il est entièrement dégonflé, il se plaque contre la surface extérieure du fil de guidage sensiblement sans faire saillie à partir de celle-ci.
