Title (EN) CATHETER INTRODUCER WITH FLEXIBLE TIP
(FR) INTRODUCTEUR DE CATHETER A BOUT FLEXIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A catheter introducer has a tubular sheath with a relatively rigid tubular body (24) and a soft flexible tubular tip (26) for reducing sheath buckling tendencies. A coating (80) of lubricious hydrogel eases insertion through tissue and eases catheter insertion through the introducer.
(FR) Introducteur de cathéter se composant d'une gaine tubulaire dont le corps tubulaire est relativement rigide (24) et dont le bout est mou et flexible (26) afin de réduire les déformations de la gaine. Un revêtement lubrifiant à base d'hydrogel facilite l'introduction de l'instrument dans le tissu ainsi que l'introduction du cathéter dans l'introducteur.
