Title (EN) FLEXIBLE BIOPSY COLLECTION DEVICE WITH SLOTS AND RELATED METHODS OF USE
(FR) DISPOSITIF SOUPLE DE COLLECTE DE BIOPSIE ET PROCEDES D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments of the invention are directed to a medical device and methods for collecting a tissue sample from a patient's body. The device may include a first tube defining a lumen and an aperture at a distal end of the first tube. A second tube extends within the lumen of the first tube and defines a lumen and slots, where at least some of the slots have sharp edges configured to shear tissue. The second tube is movable relative to the first tube such that the sharp edges cut a plurality of samples from tissue disposed within the aperture.
(FR) Selon certaines variantes, ce dispositif médical et les procédés permettent de collecter un échantillon tissulaire corporel chez un patient. Le dispositif peut présenter un premier tube définissant une lumière et une ouverture sur une extrémité distale du premier tube. Un second tube s'étend dans la lumière du premier tube et délimite une lumière et des fentes, dont au moins certaines présentent des bords tranchants configurés pour cisailler le tissu. Le second tissu peut se déplacer par rapport au premier de sorte que les bords tranchants coupent une pluralité d'échantillons à partir du tissu placé dans l'ouverture.
