Abstract: front page image
(EN)A catheter (16) includes a pull wire (29) which extends through two different lumens (22, 22"), and attaches to the distal end of the catheter at an off-axis location. By tensioning the pull wire, the catheter can assume various complex curves, depending on the respective lumen through which the pull wire passes.
