Title (EN) MEDICAL INSTRUMENT FOR ACCESSING A BREAST DUCT FOR PERFORMING A MEDICAL PROCEDURE AND METHODS THEREOF
(FR) INSTRUMENT MEDICAL D'ACCES A UN CANAL GALACTOPHORE POUR LA REALISATION D'UNE INTERVENTION MEDICALE ET METHODES ASSOCIEES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A medical instrument (10) including a ductal access device comprising a low profile, ergonomic manifold hub (20) usable to introduce fluids into a breast duct and collect ductal fluid samples including ductal epithelial cells from within a breast duct. The ductal access device also comprises an activate valve and an elongated access catheter (40) having a distal end (42), one lumen (43) and dimensions which permit introduction of the distal end (42) through a ductal orifice and adapted to slideably receive a ductal introducer (50). The introducer (50) may extend beyond the distal tip (42) of the catheter (40) and serve to penetrate the ductal orifice. The methods comprise the opening a ductal sphincter or the manipulation of a breast, duct using controlled fluid pressure through a ductal access device.
(FR)L'invention concerne un instrument médical comprenant un dispositif d'accès canalaire pourvu d'un profil bas, d'un raccord de collecteur ergonomique conçu pour introduire des liquides dans un canal galactophore et recueillir des échantillons liquides canalaires contenant des cellules épithéliales canalaires à partir de l'intérieur d'un canal galactophore. Ce dispositif d'accès canalaire comporte aussi une valve d'activation et un cathéter d'accès allongé possédant une extrémité distale, une lumière et des dimensions qui permettent d'introduire l'extrémité distale à travers un orifice canalaire et de recevoir de manière coulissante un introducteur canalaire. Cet introducteur peut s'étendre au-delà de l'embout distal du cathéter et servir pour pénétrer dans l'orifice canalaire. Lesdites méthodes comprennent l'ouverture d'un sphincter canalaire ou la manipulation d'un canal galactophore, au moyen de la pression régulée d'un liquide à travers un dispositif d'accès canalaire.
