Title: (DE) PERKUTANE EINFÜHRVORRICHTUNG MIT ABNEHMBARER REVOLVERKOPFANORDNUNG
(EN) PERCUTANEOUS ACCESS DEVICE HAVING REMOVABLE TURRET ASSEMBLY
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ACCES PERCUTANE A TOURELLE DEMONTABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) This invention is a percutaneous access device (10) implant beneath the skin of a patient which includes a housing (12) having a flange (14) positioned beneath the skin and neck (16) projecting outward through the skin. The percutaneous access device (10) includes electrical communication through the flange (14) and fluid access through the flange (14). The components providing fluid access and electrical communication are removable through the neck portion of the implant testing for testing and service as required without the need for further surgery on the patient. A turret body (28) is received within the hollow interior of the neck having a fluid channel extending therethrough and containing current limiting devices securely disposed within the turret body (28).
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif d'accès percutané (10) implantable sous la peau d'un patient comportant une enveloppe (12) munie d'un flasque (14) se plaçant sous la peau, ainsi qu'un col (16) traversant la peau et saillant à l'extérieur. Le dispositif (10) comporte des raccordements électriques et des conduites de liquide traversant le flasque (14). Les composants assurant le passage du liquide et les liaisons électriques peuvent être extraits par le col pour des essais ou l'entretien sans devoir procéder à de nouvelles interventions chirurgicales sur le patient. Un corps (28) en forme de tourelle placé dans l'intérieur creux du col, et comportant une conduite de liquide le traversant, est muni de dispositifs limiteurs de courant lui (28) étant fermement fixés.
