Title (EN) A SUPPORT FRAME FOR AN EMBOLIC PROTECTION DEVICE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE SOUTIEN POUR DISPOSITIF DE PROTECTION EMBOLIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A support (103) for an embolic protection device comprises round wires (116) which may form one or more support hoops for a filter body. The circumferential hoop formed by the wires (116) ensures that in the expanded position, the filter body (102) will be supported by the support frame (103) in circumferential apposition with the interior wall of the vasculature. The wires (116) may have a strain distributing linkage element in the form of a loop (120) in. The loop (120) acts as a diameter or circumference adjuster allowing an embolic protection device to adapt to different vessel contours and sizes whilst maintaining apposition with the vessel wall. The strain relieving geometry of the loops enhances the compliance of the bend points without creating a weakened hinge point, thus ensuring that there is no discontinuity in the circumferential seal against the vessel wall.
(FR) L'invention concerne un soutien (103) pour un dispositif de protection embolique, qui comprend des fils ronds (116) pouvant former au moins une boucle de soutien pour un corps filtre. La boucle circonférentielle formée par les fils (116) garantit que dans sa position déployée, le corps filtre (102) est soutenu par la structure de soutien (103) en apposition circonférentielle avec la paroi intérieure des vaisseaux. Les fils (116) peuvent posséder un élément de liaison répartissant la contrainte sous forme d'une boucle (120). Cette boucle (120) agit en tant que dispositif de réglage du diamètre ou de la circonférence, permettant à un dispositif de protection embolique de s'adapter à différents contours et tailles de vaisseau tout en maintenant l'apposition avec la paroi du vaisseau. La géométrie de réduction de la contrainte des boucles renforce l'élasticité des points de pli sans créer un point charnière affaibli, ce qui permet d'assurer qu'il n'y a pas de discontinuité dans le joint circonférentiel le long de la paroi du vaisseau.
