Title (EN) STENT GRIP AND SYSTEM FOR USE THEREWITH
(FR) ENSEMBLE ADHERENT D'ENDOPROTHESE ET SYSTEME ASSOCIE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for reducing the longitudinal aspect of the catheter to stent force comprises at least one grip member for use with a stent delivery system. The grip engages a stent in the unexpanded state prior to delivery of the stent by retracting a stent retaining sheath. The grip comprises a body region having an outer diameter, a first end and a second end. The outer diameter of the first end is greater than the outer diameter of the second end. The grip is at least partially constructed from a polymeric material.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif permettant de réduire la force longitudinale produite entre un cathéter et une endoprothèse, qui comprend au moins un élément adhérent s'utilisant avec un système d'apport d'endoprothèse. L'ensemble adhérent entre en contact avec une endoprothèse non déployée avant que celle-ci soit mise en place par retrait d'une gaine de retenue d'endoprothèse. L'ensemble adhérent comprend une région de corps présentant un diamètre extérieur, une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité. Le diamètre extérieur de la première extrémité est supérieur à celui de la seconde extrémité. L'ensemble adhérent est au moins partiellement construit à partir d'une matière polymère.
