Title (EN) HEMOSTATIC CATHETER INTRODUCER
(FR) INTRODUCTEUR DE CATHETER HEMOSTATIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A self-sealing hemostatic valve for use in a catheter apparatus is disclosed, comprising a proximal valve element having a sealing hole, a distal valve element having a flap and biasing means to enhance the force with which the flap bears against the distal side of the proximal valve element to normally seal the hole. The sealing hole seals about an instrument passed through the valve and the flap seals the valve when no instrument is present. The proximal face of the proximal valve element is provided with discontinuities that increase the flexibility of the proximal valve element in a distal direction.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une soupape hémostatique auto-obturante s'utilisant avec un cathéter et comprenant un élément proximal de soupape présentant un orifice obturable, un élément distal de soupape muni d'un volet et d'un moyen de rappel accroissant la force avec laquelle le volet porte sur le côté distal de l'élément proximal de soupape pour obturer l'orifice de manière normale. L'orifice obturable se referme autour d'un instrument passé à travers la soupape, tandis que le volet ferme la soupape lorsqu'aucun instrument n'est en place. La face proximale de l'élément proximal de soupape est pourvue de discontinuités accroissant la flexibilité dudit élément dans le sens distal.
