Title (EN) MICRO-CATHETERS AND METHODS OF THEIR MANUFACTURE
(FR) MICRO-CATHETERS ET LEURS PROCEDES DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A micro-catheter including an inner primary liner and a plurality of concatenated tubular sections is provided. The primary liner extends substantially from the proximal end to the distal end of the catheter. Each of the tubular sections has a respective inner surface that is fused to the outer surface of the primary liner. The outer diameter of any section is equal to or greater than the outer diameter of any other more distally located section. Each of the tubular sections may have different physical properties and dimensions for making customized micro-catheter profiles.
(FR) Micro-cathéters comprenant un revêtement primaire intérieur et une pluralité de sections tubulaires concaténées. Le revêtement primaire s'étend sensiblement de l'extrémité proximale à l'extrémité distale du cathéter. Chacune des sections tubulaires présente une surface interne qui est soudée à la surface externe du revêtement primaire. Le diamètre extérieur de l'une des sections est égal ou supérieur au diamètre extérieur de toute autre section située à une plus grande distance distale. Chacune des sections tubulaires peut présenter des propriétés physiques et des dimensions différentes en vue de réaliser des profils de micro-cathéters adaptés à l'usager.
