Title
(EN) MEDICAL DEVICE WITH PREFERENTIAL BENDING
(FR) DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL PRÉSENTANT UNE COURBURE PRÉFÉRENTIELLE
Abstract
(EN) Medical devices such as catheters may provide advantages in flexibility, strength and other desired properties. Some medical devices may include a hypotube that has a plurality of slots disposed therein. The hypotube or another portion of the medical device may cause or permit the medical device to exhibit preferential bending in a single direction.
(FR) Les dispositifs médicaux tels que les cathéters peuvent présenter des avantages en termes de flexibilité, résistance mécanique ou autres propriétés souhaitées. Les dispositifs médicaux selon l'invention peuvent comprendre un hypotube comportant toute une série de fentes. L'hypotube ou toute autre partie du dispositif médical peut faire en sorte ou permettre que le dispositif médical présente une courbure préférentielle dans une seule direction.
