Title (EN) SQUEEZE-ACTUATED CATHETER CONNECTOR AND METHOD
(FR) CONNECTEUR DE CATHETER A ACTIONNEMENT PAR PRESSION ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A connector for coupling medical tubing (e.g., a catheter) to an implantable medical device. The connector, in one embodiment, may include a retaining member surrounding an optional housing. The retaining member may have at least one locking finger that extends through at least one corresponding window in the housing and selectively engages a stem of the medical device to retain the end of the catheter relative thereto. Application of a compressive force applied to the retaining member may cause the locking finger(s) to withdraw from the stem and release the catheter.
(FR)L'invention concerne un connecteur destiné à coupler des tubulures médicales (par ex. un cathéter) à un appareil médical implantable. Dans un mode de réalisation, le connecteur peut comporter un élément de retenue entourant un boîtier optionnel. L'élément de retenue peut comporter au moins un doigt de verrouillage s'étendant au travers d'au moins une fenêtre correspondante dans le boîtier, et entre sélectivement en prise avec une tige de l'appareil médical afin de retenir l'extrémité du cathéter par rapport à celle-ci. L'application d'une force de compression sur l'élément de retenue peut amener les doigts de verrouillage à se libérer de la tige et relâcher le cathéter.
