Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INTRACRANIAL ACCESS AND MONITORING
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'ACCES INTRACRANIEN ET DE SURVEILLANCE
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method for intracranial access is disclosed. In particular, a drill stop is shown providing a way to control the penetration of a drill bit as an access hole into the brain is being formed. Access to a desired location is achieved using a catheter guide device. Also disclosed is a mechanism by which multiple diagnostic and treatment devices can be placed at a desired location in brain tissue without the need for more than one access hole. A drainage catheter is disclosed with a mechanism to allow both drainage and to allow intracranial pressure measurement.
(FR)
L'invention porte: sur un système et un procédé d'accès intracrânien comportant en particulier une butée permettant de contrôler la pénétration des forets de trépanation; sur un mécanisme permettant de placer différents instruments de diagnostique et de traitement en des points désirés des tissus cérébraux à partir d'un seul orifice d'accès; et sur un cathéter de drainage permettant à la fois le drainage et la mesure de la pression intracrânienne.
