Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR DELIVERY OF A MEDICAL ELECTRICAL LEAD WITHIN A VENOUS SYSTEM
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME POUR LA DELIVRANCE D'UN CONDUCTEUR ELECTRIQUE MEDICAL DANS UN SYSTEME VEINEUX
Abstract:
(EN) A system for delivering a medical electrical lead within a coronary venous system that includes an introducer kit for establishing venous access to the coronary venous system and a plurality of delivery sheaths, each corresponding to a desired approach to a coronary sinus of the coronary venous system and insertable within the coronary venous system through the navigation pathway. A hemostasis valve is coupled to a delivery sheath of the plurality of delivery sheaths, and a guide wire is inserted within the lead lumen, guiding delivery of the distal tip of the medical electrical lead to a target site within the coronary venous system through the hemostasis valve and the delivery sheath. Subsequent to the distal tip being delivered to the target sight, the hemostasis valve is advanced over the connector of the medical electrical lead to remove the hemostasis valve from the medical electrical lead.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de délivrance de conducteur électrique médical dans un système veineux coronarien, qui comprend un kit introducteur pour l'établissement de l'accès au système veineux et plusieurs manchons de délivrance correspondant chacun à une approche souhaitée vers un sinus coronarien du système veineux et pouvant être inséré dans ledit système via le trajet de navigation. Une valve hémostatique est couplée à l'un des manchons de délivrance, et un fil guide est inséré dans la lumière du conducteur, permettant de guider l'extrémité distale du conducteur vers un site cible dans le système veineux, via ladite valve et le manchon de délivrance. Une fois l'extrémité distale parvenue sur le site cible, on passe la valve par-dessus le connecteur du conducteur pour la retirer de celui-ci.
