Title
(EN) CATHETER SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CATHÉTER
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments are directed to a catheter system (100) comprising an introducer (102) having a main body (106), an introducer sheath (110) projecting from the main body, and a first seal supported within the introducer and a catheter (104) having a main body (140), an outer sheath (122) projecting from the main body, a second seal supported within the catheter, and an inner core (154) configured to be advanced axially through the main body, the second seal, and the outer sheath. The introducer can be configured to be selectively engageable with the catheter so that the catheter can be selectively and removably linked with the introducer in the axial direction. The catheter system can also be configured such that, when the introducer and the catheter are linked, the catheter can be rotatable relative to the introducer. The introducer can be configured to radially restrain an endoluminal prosthesis.
(FR)
L'invention concerne, selon certains modes de réalisation, un système de cathéter (100) qui comprend un dispositif d'introduction (102) comprenant un corps principal (106), une gaine d'introduction (110) qui prolonge le corps principal et un premier joint supporté dans le dispositif d'introduction, ainsi qu'un cathéter (104) qui comprend un corps principal (140), une gaine extérieure (122) qui prolonge le corps principal, un second joint supporté dans le cathéter et une partie centrale intérieure (154) conçue pour avancer axialement à travers le corps principal, le second joint et la gaine extérieure. Le dispositif d'introduction peut entrer sélectivement en prise avec le cathéter de manière que le cathéter puisse être relié de manière sélective et amovible au dispositif d'introduction dans la direction axiale. Le système de cathéter peut également être conçu de façon que, lorsque le dispositif d'introduction et le cathéter sont reliés, le cathéter puisse tourner par rapport au dispositif d'introduction. Le dispositif d'introduction peut être conçu pour confiner radialement une prothèse endoluminale.
