Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR LOADING AND DELIVERING A STENT
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE CHARGEMENT ET DE POSE D'ENDOPROTHÈSE
Abstract
(EN)
An assembly for delivering a self-expanding stent into a body lumen comprising a catheter adapted to deliver the self-expanding stent, the catheter having a stent delivery passage adapted to contain the stent in an at least partially radially compressed state, and a stent transfer member communicating with a distal end of the catheter, the stent transfer member having a cylindrical passage sized to circumferentially surround at least a portion of the stent in an at least partially radially expanded state, the stent transfer member further including a tapered passage disposed between the cylindrical passage and the delivery passage to radially compress the stent as the stent moves from the cylindrical passage into the tapered passage.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble permettant la mise en place d'une endoprothèse auto-expansible dans une lumière corporelle. Cet ensemble comprend un cathéter conçu pour introduire l'endoprothèse auto-expansible, ce cathéter comprenant un passage de pose d'endoprothèse conçu pour contenir l'endoprothèse dans un état au moins partiellement compressé dans le sens radial, et un élément de transfert d'endoprothèse communiquant avec l'extrémité distale du cathéter. Cet élément de transfert d'endoprothèse comprend un passage cylindrique dimensionné pour entourer circonférentiellement au moins une partie de l'endoprothèse dans un état au moins partiellement expansée dans le sens radial, et un passage tronconique disposé entre le passage cylindrique et le passage de pose afin de comprimer radialement l'endoprothèse à mesure que celle-ci avance dans le passage tronconique à partir du passage cylindrique..
