Title (EN) MULTI-CHANNEL PROBE
(FR) SONDE MULTICANALAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A multi-channel probe (10) having at least three independent longitudinal channels (16, 18, 20, 22) for endoscopically lithiastic obstacles and for destroying mineral deposits in ducts, comprising a hollow tubular element (12) having a distal end (13) and a proximal end (14), characterized in that it is made of a flexible self-supporting material which can be folded or bent inwards, and in that said hollow tubular element (12) is sub-divided into at least three independent longitudinal channels (16, 18, 20, 22) by at least two partition walls (24, 26, 28) arranged lengthwise in the tubular element (12) and substantially parallel to the axis of symmetry thereof.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une sonde multicanalaire (10) à au moins trois canaux longitudinaux (16, 18, 20, 22) indépendants utilisable pour la destruction d'obstacles lithiasiques par voie endoscopique ainsi que pour la destruction de dépôts minéraux dans des conduits. La sonde multicanalaire (10) décrite comprend un élément tubulaire creux (12) définissant une extrémité distale (13) et une extrémité proximale (14), caractérisée en ce qu'elle est réalisée en un matériau auto-portant souple, permettant de se plier ou s'incurver, et en ce que ledit élément tubulaire creux (12) est sub-divisé en au moins trois canaux longitudinaux indépendants (16, 18, 20, 22) par au moins deux cloisons de refend (24, 26, 28) disposées longitudinalement sensiblement parallèlement à l'axe de symétrie de l'élément tubulaire (12).
