Title (EN) VARIABLE STIFFNESS BALLOON DILATATION CATHETERS
(FR) CATHETERS DE DILATATION A BALLONNETS A RIGIDITE VARIABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A variable stiffness balloon dilatation catheter (10) is disclosed in which one or more polymeric sleeves are heat shrunk around portions of an inner tubular element (14) so as to form stiffening bands (32, 34) that provide variable stiffness longitudinally along the catheter.
(FR)L'invention se rapporte à un cathéter (10) de dilatation à ballonnet, à rigidité variable, dans lequel un ou plusieurs manchons polymères sont thermorétrécis autour de certaines parties d'un élément tubulaire interne (14) de sorte que des bandes de renforcement (32, 34) qui confèrent au cathéter une rigidité variable sur sa longueur soient formées.
