Title (EN) ENDOGRAFT DEPLOYMENT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE DEPLOIEMENT D'ENDOGREFFE
Abstract:
(EN) An endograft hanger for expanding and suspending an endograft in the circulation for properly placing the endograft with respect to a target segment of a blood vessel includes a main body and a plurality of expandable limbs adapted to be operatively coupled to an endograft. Once the endograft is suspended in a desired location, stents are deployed to secure the endograft in position. A method for deploying an endograft is also provided, whereby the endograft that is free from stent structures is disposed in a reduced diameter configuration and, attached to a graft hanger is conducted to a target region of a blood vessel. Once in place, the graft is released from an introducer sheath and the graft hanger is released so that the hanger limbs expand to re-expand the endograft in a target region of the blood vessel.
(FR) L'invention concerne un porte-endogreffe permettant de déployer et de suspendre une endogreffe dans l'appareil circulatoire afin de positionner correctement celle-ci par rapport à un segment cible d'un vaisseau sanguin, qui comprend un corps principal et une pluralité d'éléments expansibles conçus pour être fonctionnellement raccordés à une endogreffe. Une fois que l'endogreffe est suspendue à un emplacement désiré, des endoprothèses sont déployées pour maintenir l'endogreffe en place. L'invention concerne également une méthode de déploiement d'une endogreffe dans laquelle l'endogreffe qui est dépourvue de structures endoprothétiques est disposée selon une configuration de diamètre réduit, fixée à un porte-greffon et amenée dans une région cible d'un vaisseau sanguin. Une fois en place, le greffon est libéré de la gaine d'introduction et le porte-greffon est libéré de façon que les éléments de ce dernier se déploient pour déployer à nouveau l'endogreffe dans une région cible du vaisseau sanguin.
