Title (EN) VASCULAR CLOSURE METHODS AND APPARATUSES
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF DE FERMETURE VASCULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A vascular closure device comprising a retrievable sheath-delivered contractible, clip device with structural radial or terminal members with terminal and non-terminal hooks that engage the vessel wall. Unlike other vascular closure clips, this device is delivered on the outside rather than the inside of sheath. Closure of the tissue opening can be effected by the feet of the clip engaging the puncture, aperture, or wound edges and memory characteristics of the device cause a contraction of the members, bringing the members into apposition and the wound edges together, permitting immediate vascular closure and healing of the blood vessel. The device can be delivered and recovered by an intravascular sheath.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de fermeture vasculaire comprenant une pince contractile posée par gaine récupérable, pourvue d'éléments structuraux radiaux ou terminaux garnis de crochets terminaux ou non terminaux qui prennent dans la paroi vasculaire. Contrairement à d'autres pinces de fermeture vasculaire, le dispositif se place sur l'extérieur et non à l'intérieur de la gaine. Pour fermer l'ouverture tissulaire on place la base de la pince en prise sur les bords de la perforation, de l'ouverture ou de la lésion, les éléments se resserrant grâce à la mémoire de forme du dispositif. Cette contraction met en apposition les éléments, rapprochant ainsi les lèvres de la blessure, ce qui provoque une fermeture vasculaire immédiate, avec guérison du vaisseau sanguin. Le dispositif se pose et se récupère au moyen d'une gaine intravasculaire.
