Title (EN) MEDICAL INSTRUMENT HAVING A GUIDEWIRE AND AN ADD-TO CATHETER
(FR) INSTRUMENT MEDICAL COMPRENANT UN FIL-GUIDE ET UN CATHETER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A first medical instrument includes a flexible catheter and a medical guidewire extendable beyond a distal end of the catheter. The catheter is adapted to slidably receive a rail-coupling portion of an adjunct medical device. The medical guidewire has first and second segments, wherein the bending moment of inertia of the first segment is less than the bending moment of inertia of the second segment. A second medical instrument includes a flexible catheter, a mechanized guidewire assembly, and a medical guidewire extendable beyond a distal end of the catheter. The catheter is adapted to slidably receive a rail-coupling portion of an adjunct medical device. The medical guidewire has an exterior surface including a repetitive series of spaced-apart surface elevation features. One example of surface elevation features is external threads. The spaced-apart surface elevation features are adapted for operable engagement with the mechanized guidewire drive assembly.
(FR)L'invention concerne un premier instrument médical comprenant un cathéter flexible et un fil-guide médical extensible au-delà d'une extrémité distale du cathéter. Le cathéter est conçu pour recevoir de manière coulissante un rail de couplage d'un dispositif médical associé. Le fil-guide médical comprend un premier et un second segment, le moment d'inertie de flexion du premier segment étant inférieur à celui du second segment. Un second instrument médical comprend un cathéter flexible, un ensemble de fil-guide mécanisé, et un fil-guide médical extensible au-delà d'une extrémité distale du cathéter. Le cathéter est conçu pour recevoir de manière coulissante un rail de couplage d'un dispositif médical associé. Le fil-guide médical comprend une surface extérieure comportant une série de reliefs espacés. Par exemple, ces reliefs peuvent être des filets externes. Ces reliefs espacés sont conçus pour entrer en prise avec l'ensemble d'entraînement du fil-guide mécanisé.
