(DE) NADELFÜHRUNG MIT WÄHLBAREN ASPEKTEN
(EN) NEEDLE GUIDE WITH SELECTABLE ASPECTS
(FR) GUIDE D'AIGUILLE À ASPECTS POUVANT ÊTRE SÉLECTIONNÉS
Abstract
(EN)
A needle guide assembly for inserting a needle into the body of a patient in order to access a subcutaneous target, such as a vessel, is disclosed. In one embodiment, the needle guide assembly comprises a needle guide body that is configured to at least indirectly and removably attach to an image producing device, such as an ultrasound probe. The needle guide body defines at least first and second elongate guide channels. Each guide channel defines a unique insertion angle with respect to a longitudinal axis of the ultrasound probe. Further, each guide channel is configured to accept needles of differing gauges. In other embodiments other needle guide assemblies are disclosed that include multiple guide channels for inserting a needle at a variety of insertion angles into the patient's body. Related methods are also disclosed. In yet other embodiments, needle guide assemblies including needle stop features are disclosed.

(FR)
L'invention porte sur un ensemble guide d'aiguille pour l'insertion d'une aiguille dans le corps d'un patient afin d'accéder à une cible sous-cutanée, telle qu'un vaisseau. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'ensemble guide d'aiguille comporte un corps de guide d'aiguille qui est configuré pour être attaché au moins indirectement et d'une manière amovible à un dispositif de production d'image, tel qu'une sonde ultrasonore. Le corps de guide d'aiguille définit au moins des premier et second canaux de guidage allongés. Chaque canal de guidage définit un angle d'insertion unique par rapport à un axe longitudinal de la sonde ultrasonore. En outre, chaque canal de guidage est configuré pour accepter des aiguilles de différents calibres. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, d'autres ensembles guide d'aiguille comprennent de multiples canaux de guidage pour l'insertion d'une aiguille à une diversité d'angles d'insertion dans le corps du patient. L'invention porte également sur des procédés associés. Dans encore d'autres modes de réalisation, On décrit des ensembles guide d'aiguille comprenant des éléments d'arrêt d'aiguille.
