Title (EN) CATHETER BALLOON WITH RETRACTION COATING
(FR) BALLONNET DE CATHETER A REVETEMENT DE RETRACTION
Abstract:
(EN) An inflatable balloon (14) for a catheter (10) includes a coating (15) which causes the balloon to prefer a predetermined, low profile configuration, such as a trifold configuration (40), when deflated. The balloon has a wall (13) which has an exterior polymeric coating (15). The coating (15) is set while the balloon is in the predetermined low profile deflated configuration so that after inflation, the coating acts to urge the balloon to return to the low profile configuration as the balloon is deflated.
(FR) Un ballonnet gonflable (14) pour cathéter (10) comprend un revêtement (15) grâce auquel le ballonnet adopte de préférence une configuration prédéterminée, de profil aplati, telle qu'une configuration à trois branches (40) lorsqu'il est dégonflé. Ce ballonnet comprend une paroi (13) dotée d'un revêtement polymère (15) externe. La prise du revêtement (15) s'effectue tandis que le ballonnet est sous sa configuration dégonflée prédéterminée, de sorte que, après le gonflage, le revêtement contraint le ballonnet à adopter à nouveau la configuration à profil aplati alors qu'il est dégonflé.
