Title (EN) SYSTEMS, METHODS AND DEVICES FOR REMOVING OBSTRUCTIONS FROM A BLOOD VESSEL
(FR) SYSTEMES, PROCEDES ET DISPOSITIFS SERVANT A ELIMINER DES MATIERES OBSTRUANT UN VAISSEAU SANGUIN
Abstract:
(EN) A system (100) for removing an obstruction from a blood vessel includes an obstruction engaging element (106) and an expandable capture element (102). The capture element (102) preferably has a flexible cover and an expandable support structure. The engaging element (106) engages the obstruction and moves the obstruction into the capture element. The capture element (102) protects the obstruction when the obstruction is moved into the catheter.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système servant à éliminer des matières obstruant un vaisseau sanguin, qui comprend un élément de contact de matières d'obstruction et un élément de préhension extensible. L'élément de préhension comporte de préférence une enveloppe souple et une structure de support extensible. L'élément de contact pénètre dans la matière d'obstruction et permet de déplacer celle-ci dans l'élément de préhension. L'élément de préhension protège la matière d'obstruction lors du déplacement de celle-ci à l'intérieur du cathéter.
