Title (EN) A VASCULAR FILTER SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE FILTRE VASCULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A vascular filter system comprises a vascular filter (1), a clamp device (50), and a delivery catheter (51). The filter (1) comprises filter elements (6). When used without the clamp device (50), the filter elements (6) move from a closed state to an open state upon elapse of a predetermined period of time. In the closed state the filter elements (6) capture thrombus passing through the inferior vena cava (2). The delivery catheter (51) is employed to deliver the clamp device (50) to the filter (1) after the filter (1) has been deployed in the inferior vena cava (2). The clamp device (50) engages with the filter elements (6) of the filter (1) to clamp the filter (1) in the closed state beyond elapse of the predetermined period of time. Because of the presence of the clamp device (50), the filter elements (6) are no longer free to move from the closed state to the open state upon elapse of the predetermined period of time. In this manner the period of time in which the filter (1) captures thrombus is extended either temporarily or permanently.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de filtre vasculaire (1), un clamp (50) et un cathéter de pose (51). Le filtre (1) comprend des éléments de filtre (6). Lorsqu'ils sont utilisés sans le clamp (50), les éléments de filtre (6) se déplacent d'un état fermé à un état ouvert après écoulement d'une période de temps prédéterminée. A l'état fermé, les éléments de filtre (6) capturent un thrombus traversant la veine cave inférieure (2). On emploie le cathéter de pose (51) pour acheminer le clamp (50) jusqu'au filtre (1) après que le filtre (1) a été déployé dans la veine cave inférieure (2). Le clamp (50) vient en prise avec les éléments de filtre (6) du filtre (1) pour fixer le filtre (1) à l'état fermé au-delà de l'écoulement de la période de temps prédéterminée. En raison de la présence du clamp (50), les éléments de filtre (6) ne sont plus libres de se déplacer de l'état fermé à l'état ouvert après écoulement de la période de temps prédéterminée. De cette façon, on prolonge la période de temps au cours de laquelle le filtre (1) capture un thrombus, soit temporairement, soit de façon permanente.
