Title (EN) CATHETER WITH AN EXPANDABLE END PORTION
(FR) CATHETER AVEC PARTIE D'EXTREMITE EXTENSIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A catheter (2) is used in medical applications, for example for the retrieval of a sample from a patient or the insertion or retrieval of medical devices such as filters, stents (3) to and from the patient. The catheter (2) includes an expandable tip (6) at a leading portion of a catheter tube portion (5). This expandable tip (6) can retrieve or deliver samples, medical devices, etc. (3), which are slightly larger than the dimensions of a main catheter tube (5) inserted into the patient. The expandable tip (6) can also include extension members (10) which provide axial support to the expandable tip (6) but which still allow expansion in the radial direction.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un cathéter (2) à usage médical, servant par exemple à introduire dans le corps du patient ou à y récupérer des dispositifs médicaux tels que des filtres ou des stents (3). Ce cathéter (2) comprend une extrémité extensible (6) au niveau de la partie de tête d'une partie (5) de tube de cathéter. Cette extrémité extensible (6) permet de récupérer ou de mettre en place des échantillons, des dispositifs médicaux (3), etc., dont les dimensions sont légèrement supérieures à celle du tube principal de cathéter (5) introduit dans le corps du patient. L'extrémité extensible (6) peut également comporter des éléments de rallonge (10) qui assurent le maintien axial de la pointe extensible (6) sans entraver une certaine dilatation dans le sens radial.
