Title (EN) INTRALUMINAL EXTRACTION CATHETER
(FR) CATHETER D'EXTRACTION ENDOLUMINAL
Abstract:
(EN) The expandable intraluminal catheter (10) is used for removing occlusive material from a body passage. The catheter includes a handle (12) having both a proximal handle end and a distal handle end. Attached to the distal handle end is an elongate tubular body (16) which includes a proximal elongate tubular body end and a distal elongate tubular body end (15). The elongate tubular body further includes a lumen (46) between the proximal elongate tubular body end and the distal elongate tubular body end. A number of radially expandable segments (17) are disposed on the elongate tubular body near the distal elongate tubular body end. These radially expandable segments can be mechanically activated by a user when the distal elongate tubular body end is within a blood vessel, to thereby contact and partition occlusive material within the blood vessel. The partitioned occlusive material within the blood vessel can then be removed.
(FR) Le cathéter endoluminal extensible (10) est utilisé pour enlever un matériel occlusif d'un conduit corporel. Il comprend une poignée (12) comportant une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale. Un corps tubulaire allongé (16), fixé sur l'extrémité distale de la poignée, comprend une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale (15), ainsi qu'une lumière (46) s'étendant entre les extrémités proximale et distale. Un certain nombre de segments pouvant être allongés radialement (17) sont disposés sur le corps tubulaire à proximité de son extrémité distale. Un utilisateur peut activer mécaniquement ces segments quand l'extrémité distale du corps tubulaire se trouve à l'intérieur d'un vaisseau sanguin, afin d'entrer en contact avec le matériel occlusif contenu dans le vaisseau, de le découper, puis de l'enlever.
