Title (EN) COMPOSITE MATERIAL HAVING A LUBRICOUS SURFACE FOR CATHETER USE
(FR) MATERIAU COMPOSITE A SURFACE ANTIFRICTION POUR CATHETERS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a low friction component formed of a polymer matrix having incorporated within the matrix a lubricous fluid for use in an intravascular catheter, particularly a balloon dilatation catheter. The polymer matrix preferably is a thermoplastic polymer, suitable lubricous fluid and a polysiloxane fluid. Typical components made of this low-friction material include the inner or outer tubular members of fixed-wire and over-the-wire dilatation catheters.
(FR)Constituant antifriction formé d'une matrice polymère dans laquelle est incorporé un liquide graisseux, et destiné à un cathéter intravasculaire, notamment un cathéter de dilatation à ballonnet. De préférence, la matrice polymère est un polymère thermoplastique, un liquide graisseux approprié, et un liquide au polysiloxane. Les constituants typiquement constitués de ce matériau antifriction sont notamment les éléments tubulaires intérieurs ou extérieurs des cathéters de dilatation à fil fixe et à fil avancé.
