Title
(EN) ROTATABLE LEAD INTRODUCER
(FR) INTRODUCTEUR DE FIL ROTATIF
Abstract
(EN)
Minimally invasive introducers and methods that can be used for rotationally securing devices within the human body. Introducers can include a distal element (56) for releasably engaging a lead head controllable from a proximal control (54) located outside of the body. An inner stem (108) can extend between a proximal portion and a distal portion, and be pivotally and rotatably coupled to the distal lead engagement mechanism. An outer tube (118) can be rotatably disposed over the inner stem and be flexibly coupled over the pivot to rotationally drive the distal element. A helical epicardial-myocardial lead electrode can be secured and oriented straight ahead and introduced through a port or small incision with the introducer in a straight configuration. The introducer can then be bent and rotated to screw the helical electrode into the heart.

L'invention concerne des introducteurs fort peu effractifs et des méthodes qu'on peut utiliser pour fixer rotatifs des dispositifs à l'intérieur du corps humain. Lesdits introducteurs peuvent comprendre un élément distal (56) destiné à rentrer en contact de manière amovible avec une tête de fil qu'on peut commander à partir d'une commande proximale (54) située hors du corps. Une tige interne (108) peut s'étendre entre une portion proximale et une portion distale et on peut la coupler pivotante et rotative au mécanisme d'imbrication du fil distal. On peut disposer rotatif un tube externe (118) au-dessus de la tige interne et on peut le coupler de façon flexible au-dessus du pivot afin d'entraîner rotativement l'élément distal. On peut fixer une électrode de dérivation épicardique-myocardique hélicoïdale et l'orienter droit devant, puis, l'introduire à travers un orifice ou une petite incision au moyen de l'introducteur dans une configuration droite. On peut courber et faire tourner l'introducteur en vue de visser l'électrode hélicoïdale dans le coeur.
