Title
(EN) GUIDING CATHETER FOR CORONARY SINUS
(FR) SONDE-GUIDE DESTINEE AU SINUS CORONAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A guiding catheter for delivery of intravascular devices to a patient's coronary sinus. The guiding catheter has a relatively stiff proximal section and a relatively flexible distal section, the latter being about 1 to about 6 inches in length and being configured to subselect a branch cardiac vein leading to the coronary sinus. The guiding catheter is particularly suitable for delivering an intravascular device for sensing electrical activity into a cardiac vein to detect such activity from within the blood vessel.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une sonde-guide permettant de placer des dispositifs intravasculaires dans le sinus coronaire d'un patient. Cette sonde-guide présente une partie proximale relativement rigide et un partie distale relativement flexible, cette dernière présentant une longueur d'environ 1 à 6 pouces et étant conçue pour sous-sélectionner une veine cardiaque de ramification, conduisant au sinus coronaire. Cette sonde-guide est particulièrement appropriée pour la mise en place d'un dispositif intravasculaire permettant de détecter l'activité électrique à l'intérieur d'une veine cardiaque et de détecter cette activité à partir de l'intérieur du vaisseau sanguin.
