Title (EN) CATHETER-FILTER SET HAVING A COMPLIANT SEAL
(FR) ENSEMBLE CATHETER-FILTRE A ORGANE D'ETANCHEITE ELASTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A catheter-filter set in an embodiment may be used in a vas through which a biological fluid may flow. This embodiment includes a tubular member, having a lumen disposed along its length and an insertion end for insertion into the vas. The lumen defines a longitudinal axis and a radial direction perpendicular thereto. The embodiment also has a filter, coupled to the tubular member and having a circumference, for trapping undesired particles. Finally, the embodiment includes a resilient member, having compliance in the radial direction, disposed circumferentially about the filter and, when deployed in the vas, forms a seal against the interior wall of the vas. Other embodiments are also provided.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ensemble cathéter-filtre, qui selon un mode de réalisation, peut être utilisé dans un vaisseau à travers lequel un fluide biologique peut s'écouler. L'ensemble cathéter-filtre comprend un élément tubulaire doté d'une lumière disposée selon sa longueur et une extrémité d'insertion pour insertion dans le vaisseau. La lumière définit un axe longitudinal et une perpendiculaire dirigée radialement par rapport à l'axe. Le cathéter-filtre est doté d'un filtre couplé à l'élément tubulaire et présente une circonférence destinée à piéger des particules indésirables. L'ensemble cathéter-filtre comprend un élément élastique susceptible de se déformer dans le sens radial, disposé sur la périphérie du filtre et qui une fois déployé dans le vaisseau, forme un organe d'étanchéité venant contre les parois intérieures dudit vaisseau. L'invention concerne également d'autres modes de réalisation.
