Abstract: front page image
(EN)A compact retrievable blood clot filter has a filter section, a releasable lock and an alignment section connected to the filter section. Alignment ribs of the alignment section have releasable upstream ends that are locked to the filter by the releasable lock. The releasable upstream ends of the alignment ribs are capable of being released from the releasable lock so that during retrieval of the filter, the alignment ribs can slide through the endothelial tissue that may have grown around the alignment ribs.
(FR)L'invention concerne un filtre à caillots sanguins récupérable, compact, comprenant une section filtrante, un verrou libérable et une section d'alignement reliée à la section filtrante. Les nervures d'alignement de la section d'alignement possèdent des extrémités amont libérables qui sont verrouillées sur le filtre par le verrou libérable. Ces extrémités amont libérables peuvent être libérées du verrou libérable de façon que, lors de la récupération du filtre, les nervures d'alignement glissent à travers le tissu endothélial qui peut s'être formé autour des nervures d'alignement.
