Abstract:
(EN) In accordance with the present invention there is provided exemplary embodiments of an introducer sheath in accordance with the present invention, wherein the introducer sheath of the present invention is formed of multiple components which are resiliently assembled to form a single introducer sheath. One embodiment of the introducer sheath includes a hub, a retaining member and an elongated tubular member. The hub has a lumen that has a groove. The elongated tubular member has a proximal end that includes a flared portion. The distal end of the retaining member is configured to be received in the groove formed in the lumen of the hub. The distal end of the retaining member contacts the flared portion of the tubular member when distal end of the retaining member is disposed in the groove such that the tubular member is retained within the lumen of the hub in a sealed engagement.

La gaine d'introduction de la présente invention est formée de multiples composants qui sont assemblés de manière souple afin de former une gaine d'introduction unique. Dans un mode de réalisation, la gaine d'introduction comprend un raccord, un élément de retenue et un élément tubulaire allongé. Le raccord présente une lumière qui comporte une gorge. L'élément tubulaire allongé présente une extrémité proximale qui comprend une partie évasée. L'extrémité distale de l'élément de retenue est conçue pour être reçue dans gorge formée dans la lumière du raccord. L'extrémité distale de l'élément de retenue vient en contact avec la partie évasée de l'élément tubulaire lorsque l'extrémité distale de l'élément de retenue est disposée dans la rainure de sorte que l'élément tubulaire est retenu dans la lumière du raccord en un engagement étanche.
