Title
(EN) GASTRIC BALLOON CATHETER WITH IMPROVED BALLOON ORIENTATION
(FR) SONDE GASTRIQUE A BALLONNET AVEC ORIENTATION AMELIOREE DU BALLONNET
Abstract
(EN)
A balloon catheter with improved balloon orientation includes a head, a catheter segment extending from the head, and a balloon disposed on the catheter segment opposite the head. Preferably, the balloon is attached to the exterior of the catheter segment at a proximal location and to the interior of the catheter segment at a distal location to thereby form a balloon which extends distally from the distal end of the catheter segment when inflated. The improved orientation of the balloon helps to prevent contact between the distal end of the catheter segment and anatomical structures of the user, thereby reducing irritation.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne une sonde à ballonnet avec orientation améliorée du ballonnet. Ladite sonde comprend une tête, un segment de sonde qui part de la tête, et un ballonnet situé à l'extrémité du segment de sonde, opposée à la tête. De préférence, le ballonnet est fixé à l'extérieur du segment de sonde dans une zone proximale et à l'intérieur du segment de sonde dans une zone distale, afin de former un ballonnet qui, une fois gonflé, s'écarte de la partie distale du segment de sonde. L'orientation améliorée du ballonnet contribue à empêcher le contact entre la partie distale du segment de sonde et les structures anatomiques de l'utilisateur, ce qui permet de limiter le phénomène d'irritation.
