Title: (DE) SYSTEM ZUM EINBRINGEN EINES ABZWEIGENDEN STENTS UND METHODE ZU SEINER ANWENDUNG
(EN) BIFURCATED STENT DELIVERY SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) SYSTEME SERVANT A APPLIQUER UN STENT BIFURQUE ET MODE D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) An endovascular sleeve which can be utilized to navigate a pair of guidewires to a bifurcated body passageway such that, once in place, the guidewires are substantially untwisted or untangled. This greatly facilitates delivery of the bifurcated stent to the bifurcated artery.
(FR) L'invention concerne un manchon endovasculaire, qui peut être utilisé pour faire passer une paire de fils-guides vers une voie de passage d'un corps bifurqué, de façon à ce qu'une fois en place, les fils-guides soient pratiquement déroulés ou démêlés. Ceci facilite grandement l'acheminement du stent bifurqué vers l'artère bifurquée.
