Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR HEATING AND COOLING DURING STENT CRIMPING
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR UN CHAUFFAGE ET UN REFROIDISSEMENT PENDANT LE SERTISSAGE D'UNE ENDOPROTHÈSE VASCULAIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Method of crimping a stent on to a balloon of a balloon catheter comprising providing a cooling source to cool the stent and/or drug eluting coating stent while crimping the stent onto the balloon, and providing a heating source to heat the balloon while crimping the stent onto the balloon. The method includes introducing a cooling fluid through a passage in one or more of the plurality of crimping elements of the crimping apparatus to cool the crimping elements while crimping the stent onto the balloon, and introducing a heating fluid through the elongate shaft of the balloon catheter to heat the balloon while crimping the stent onto the balloon.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de sertissage d'un stent sur un ballonnet d'un cathéter à ballonnet comprenant l'introduction d'une source de refroidissement permettant de refroidir le stente et/ou le stent à revêtement éluant, tout en sertissant le stent sur le ballonnet, et à l'introduction d'une source de chaleur servant à chauffer le ballonnet tout en sertissant le stent sur le ballonnet. Le procédé de l'invention comprend l'introduction d'un fluide de refroidissement à travers un passage dans un ou plusieurs éléments de sertissage de la pluralité d'éléments sur le ballonnet, et l'introduction d'un fluide chauffant à travers la tige allongée du cathéter du ballonnet pour chauffer le ballonnet tout en sertissant le stent sur le ballonnet.
