Title (EN) DISTAL PROTECTION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PROTECTION DISTAL
Abstract:
(EN) An emboli capturing system (10) captures emboli in blood flowing in the vasculature. The emboli capturing system (10) includes a guidewire (14) having a longitudinal axis and defining a lumen along at least a portion thereof. An expandable member (20) is coupled to a distal portion of the guidewire (14) and has an interior being in fluid communication with the lumen in the guidewire. The expandable member (20) is configured to receive fluid through the lumen to expand radially outwardly relative to the guidewire (14) and have fluid removed from the interior thereof to collapse radially inwardly relative to the guidewire (14). The expandable member (20), when expanded, has a spaced portion thereof spaced radially outwardly from the guidewire (14). An emboli capturing device is coupled to the expandable member (20) and is configured to deploy radially outwardly relative to the guidewire (14) upon expansion of the expandable member (20).
(FR) Un système (10) d'interception d'emboles intercepte des emboles dans du sang s'écoulant dans le système vasculaire. Ce système (10) d'interception d'emboles comprend un guide-fil (14) qui comprend un axe longitudinal et définit une lumière sur au moins une partie de ce dernier. Un élément dilatable (20) est couplé à une partie distale du guide-fil (14) et comporte une partie interne qui communique par le fluide avec la lumière formée dans le guide-fil. L'élément dilatable (20) est configuré pour recevoir du fluide par la lumière pour se dilater radialement et vers l'extérieur par rapport au guide-fil (14), le fluide étant éliminé de sa partie interne pour qu'il s'écrase radialement vers l'intérieur par rapport au guide-fil (14). Une fois dilaté l'élément dilatable (20) présente une partie espacée qui est éloignée radialement vers l'extérieure par rapport au guide-fil (14). Un dispositif d'interception d'emboles est couplé à l'élément dilatable (20) est configuré pour se déployer radialement vers l'extérieur par rapport au guide-fil (14) lors de la dilatation de l'élément dilatable (20).
