Title (EN) A CATHETER
(FR) CATHÉTER
Abstract:
(EN) A catheter sheath (12) includes a tubular member (14), a distal region of the tubular member defining a plurality of discrete elements (18), the discrete elements (18) being displaceable between a first, inoperative position in which the discrete elements (18) extend substantially parallel to a longitudinal axis of the tubular member (14) and a second, operative position in which at least a portion (20) of each of the discrete elements (18) projects outwardly transverse to the longitudinal axis of the tubular member (14). At least one electrode (42) carried at least by the portion (20) of the at least one of the discrete elements (18), the at least one electrode (42) being exposed when the discrete elements (18) are in their second position. A sleeve (38) is mounted about the tubular member (14). A bracing structure (22, 30, 34) is interposed between a distal part of the sleeve (38) and the portions (20) of the discrete elements (18) to brace the portions (20) of the discrete elements (18) in their operative position.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une gaine de cathéter (12) qui comprend un élément tubulaire (14), la région distale de l'élément tubulaire définissant une pluralité d'éléments discrets (18), les éléments discrets (18) étant déplaçables entre une première position inactive dans laquelle les éléments discrets (18) s'étendent sensiblement parallèlement à l'axe longitudinal de l'élément tubulaire (14) et une seconde position active dans laquelle au moins une partie (20) de chacun des éléments discrets (18) fait saillie vers l'extérieur, transversalement à l'axe longitudinal de l'élément tubulaire (14) ; au moins une électrode (42) portée au moins par la partie (20) de l'au moins un des éléments discrets (18), l'au moins une électrode (42) étant apparente lorsque les éléments discrets (18) sont dans leur seconde position. Un manchon (38) est monté autour de l'élément tubulaire (14). Une structure d'entretoise (22, 30, 34) est interposée entre la partie distale du manchon (38) et les parties (20) des éléments discrets (18) pour entretoiser les parties (20) des éléments discrets (18) dans leur position active.
