(FR) CATHETER A BALLONNET
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a balloon catheter comprising a shaft including a mainly tubular relatively rigid proximal shaft section and a distal shaft section, more flexible than the proximal shaft section, attached to a distal end portion of the proximal shaft section, and an inflatable balloon extending at a distal portion of the distal shaft section, and wherein a flexible transition member is attached to the distal end portion of the proximal shaft section extending into the distal shaft section. The balloon catheter is employed in the field of coronary angioplasty, particularly for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un cathéter à ballonnet comprenant un axe comportant une section proximale, principalement tubulaire, relativement rigide et une section distale, plus flexible que la section proximale, fixée à une portion d'extrémité distale de la section d'axe proximale, et un ballonnet gonflable s'étendant sur une portion distale de la section d'axe distale, sur lequel un élément de transition flexible est fixé sur la portion d'extrémité distale de la section d'axe proximale s'étendant dans la section d'axe distale. Ce cathéter à ballonnet est utilisé dans le domaine de l'angioplastie coronaire, en particulier pour l'angioplastie coronaire transluminale percutanée (PTCA).
