Title
(EN) ROTATIONAL THROMBECTOMY APPARATUS AND METHOD WITH STANDING WAVE
(FR) APPAREIL ROTATIF ET METHODE DE THROMBECTOMIE A ONDE STATIONNAIRE
Abstract
(EN) The method and apparatus for clearing lumens of thrombolytic material includes a motor having control means for operable using one hand holding the motor, an elongated wire connected to the motor and rotatable thereby, a catheter for enveloping a length of the wire and gripping means facilitating manual rotation of the catheter by one hand independently of the wire as the wire is rotated by the motor at a speed sufficient to create a standing wave in a portion of the wire extending from the catheter.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil destinés à éliminer la matière thrombolytique de lumières et comprenant un moteur présentant un moyen de commande actionné d'une main tenant le moteur, un fil allongé connecté au moteur mis en rotation par celui-ci, un cathéter destiné à envelopper une longueur du fil et un moyen de prise facilitant la rotation manuelle du cathéter d'une main indépendamment du fil, à mesure que le fil est mis en rotation par le moteur à une vitesse suffisante pour créer une onde stationnaire dans une partie du fil s'étendant à partir du cathéter.
