Title (EN) METHOD OF REMOVING THROMBOSIS IN FISTULAE
(FR) PROCEDE D'ELIMINATION DE THROMBOSE DANS DES FISTULES
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus (10) and methods are provided for utilizing a combination of ultrasonic energy, and an echo contrast agent (14) containing micro-bubbles for substantially destroying blood clots (22) or other fistula obstructions. One embodiment of the present invention alternatively utilizes a selected dose of thrombolytic agent in combination with an echo contrast agent (14), for enhancing the thrombolytic action of a thrombolytic agent, and removing a thrombosis (22) from a fistula (12).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (10) et des procédés pour utiliser en combinaison l'énergie ultrasonore et un agent de contraste par écho (14) renfermant des micro-bulles qui permettent de détruire sensiblement les caillots sanguins (22) ou autres obstructions dans une fistule. Selon une variante, on utilise une dose déterminée d'agent thrombolytique en combinaison avec un agent de contraste par écho (14), pour améliorer l'action thrombolytique de l'agent, et pour éliminer la thrombose (22) dans une fistule (12).
