Title (EN) SUPPORT FRAME FOR AN EMBOLIC PROTECTION DEVICE
(FR) CADRE DE SUPPORT POUR DISPOSITIF DE PROTECTION EMBOLIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An embolic filtering device includes a filter support frame which provides a freely articulating structure for deploying and maintaining a filter body in a deployed configuration. A filter body having an inlet end and an outlet end is coupled to the filter support frame. The filter support frame includes a plurality of arms, each arm having a first end and a second end. The first ends of the arms are generally coupled together, with each of the second ends of the arms having a support element coupled thereto. Each arm can articulate independently from another. Each support element can freely articulate on each arm. The free ends of each support element can be biased to an outwardly extending position so that a suitable force will be created to maintain the filter body firmly pressed against a vessel wall when deployed.
(FR) L’invention concerne un dispositif de filtrage embolique comprenant un cadre de support de filtre qui offre une structure d’articulation libre pour déployer et maintenir un corps de filtre selon une configuration déployée. Un corps de filtre comprenant une extrémité d’entrée et une extrémité de sortie est couplé au cadre de support de filtre. Ledit cadre de support de filtre comprend une pluralité de bras, chaque bras comprenant une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité. Les premières extrémités de bras sont généralement couplées ensemble, chacune des secondes extrémités de bras comprenant un élément de support couplé à ces dernières. Chaque bras peut être articulé indépendamment de l’autre. Chaque élément de support peut s’articuler librement sur chaque bras. Les extrémités libres de chaque élément de support peuvent être sollicitées vers une position s’étendant vers l’extérieur de sorte qu’une force appropriée sera créée pour maintenir le corps de filtre fermement pressé contre une paroi de récipient lorsqu’il est déployé.
