Title (EN) EXTENSION SYSTEM FOR PRESSURE-SENSING GUIDEWIRES
(FR) SYSTEME DE PROLONGEMENT POUR DES FILS-GUIDES DE DETECTION DE PRESSION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An extension system for a pressure-sensing guidewire is disclosed. The guidewire includes an elongated tubular member having a proximal end, a distal end and a lumen extending between the proxim al and distal end and a lumen extending between the proximal and distal ends. The guidewire also includes at least one opening disposed adjacent the distal end of the tubular member for providing fluid communication to the lumen. The system also includes an elongated extension member that is detachably connected to the proximal end of the tubular member.The system enables a catheter to be inserted over a pressure-sensing guidewire without removing the pressure-sensing guidewire without removing the pressure-sensing guidewire from a patient.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de prolongement pour un fil-guide de détection de pression. Ce fil-guide comprend un élément tubulaire allongé présentant une extrémité proximale, une extrémité distale et une lumière s'étendant entre l'extrémité proximale et l'extrémité distale. Ce fil-guide comprend également au moins un orifice disposé adjacent à l'extrémité distale de l'élément tubulaire permettant d'obtenir une communication fluidique vers la lumière. Ce système comprend également un élément de prolongement allongé relié de manière amovible à l'extrémité proximale de l'élément tubulaire. Ce système permet à un cathéter d'être inséré par le biais d'un fil-guide de détection de pression, sans retirer le fil-guide de détection de pression du patient.
