Abstract
(EN)
A catheter (10) has a main lumen (20), and sub-lumens (30) each of which having a diameter smaller than that of the main lumen (20) . The plurality of sub-lumens (30) are arranged along a circumference of the main lumen (20) in a discrete manner, and each of the sub-lumens (30) has an operating wire (40), fixed to the distal end section (15) of the catheter (10), laid therethrough in a freely slidable manner. By pulling the operating wire(s) (40) respectively laid through the sub-lumens (30), the distal end section (15) of the catheter (10) may be bent towards the pulled operating wire(s) (40) laid therethrough.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un cathéter (10) présentant une lumière principale (20) et des lumières secondaires (30) présentant un diamètre inférieur au diamètre de la lumière principale (20). Dans le cathéter (10), plusieurs lumières secondaires (30) sont distribuées dans la direction périphérique de la lumière principale (20) et des câbles fonctionnels (40) fixés à l'extrémité distale (15) du cathéter (10) traversent respectivement les lumières secondaires (30) par glissement. Le fait de tirer un câble fonctionnel (40) traversant l'une des lumières secondaires (30) permet de recourber l'extrémité distale (15) du cathéter (10) du côté dudit câble fonctionnel (40).
