Title (EN) VARIABLE STIFFNESS INTRODUCER SHEATH WITH TRANSITION ZONE
(FR) GAINE D'INTUBATEUR À RIGIDITÉ VARIABLE DOTÉE D'UNE ZONE DE TRANSITION
Abstract:
(EN) An introducer sheath includes a lubricious inner liner having a passageway extending longitudinally therethrough, a reinforcing member positioned over the inner liner, and an outer jacket positioned longitudinally over the reinforcing member and the inner liner. The outer jacket has a higher durometer proximal portion, a lower durometer distal portion, and a transition zone between the proximal portion and the distal portion. The transition zone has a variable durometer from a junction with the outer jacket proximal portion to a junction with the outer jacket distal portion, to provide a transition between the higher durometer proximal portion and the lower durometer distal portion.
(FR) L'invention concerne une gaine d'intubateur qui comprend une couche interne lubrifiante à travers laquelle s'étend longitudinalement une voie de passage, un élément de renfort placé au-dessus de la couche interne et une chemise externe placée longitudinalement au-dessus de l'élément de renfort et de la couche interne. La chemise externe comporte une partie proximale de dureté au duromètre supérieure, une partie distale de dureté au duromètre inférieure et une zone de transition entre la partie proximale et la partie distale. La zone de transition a une dureté au duromètre variable entre une jonction avec la partie proximale de la chemise externe et une jonction avec la partie distale de la chemise externe, afin de permettre une transition entre la partie proximale de dureté au duromètre supérieure et la partie distale de dureté au duromètre inférieure.
