Title (EN) INTRAVASCULAR FILTER WITH DEBRIS ENTRAPMENT MECHANISM
(FR) FILTRE INTRAVASCULAIRE AVEC MECANISME DE PIEGEAGE DE DEBRIS
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and method are disclosed for filtering and entrapping debris from the vascular system of a patient. A filter device (5, 105, 205, 305) is disclosed for filtering and entrapping debris from the vascular system of a patient comprising: a filter (10, 110, 210, 310) being sized to allow blood flow therethrough and to restrict passage of debris therethrough. The filter device (5, 105, 205, 305) comprises the filter (10, 110, 210, 310) to capture the debris carried in a first direction of a blood flow and an entrapment mechanism to prevent the debris passage in a second direction opposite to the first direction. A method is disclosed for filtering, entraping and removing debris from the vascular system of a patient.
(FR) L'invention concerne une méthode et un appareil destinés au filtrage et au piégeage de débris présents dans le système vasculaire d'un patient. Un dispositif de filtrage (5, 105, 205, 305) permet de filtrer et de piéger les débris présents dans le système vasculaire d'un patient. Ce dispositif comprend un filtre (10, 110, 210, 310) dimensionné de façon à empêcher le passage des débris tout en permettant au sang de s'écouler. Ce filtre (10, 110, 210, 310) permet de capturer les débris transportés dans un premier sens d'écoulement de sang. Le dispositif de filtrage (5, 105, 205, 305) comporte également un mécanisme de piégeage destiné à empêcher le passage des débris dans un second sens opposé audit premier sens d'écoulement. L'invention concerne en outre une méthode destinées à filtrer, piéger et éliminer les débris présents dans le système vasculaire d'un patient.
