Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention is directed to a device and method for minimally invasive access to the pericardial space of a human or animal patient. The disclosed pericardial access device includes a penetrating body (12) axially mobile within the lumen (13) of a guide tube (14). The distal end of the guide tube includes a shoulder to buttress pericardial tissue drawn into the guide tube by a suction force applied to the guide tube lumen. The penetrating body (12) is subsequently distally advanced within the guide tube to access the pericardium (2).

Le dispositif d'accès péricardique comprend un corps transfixiant (12) axialement mobile dans la lumière (13) d'un tube de guidage (14). L'extrémité distale du tube comprend un épaulement soutenant le tissu péricardique tiré dans le tube par une force d'aspiration appliquée à la lumière du tube.
