Title (EN) INTRODUCER APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL D'INTRODUCTION
Abstract:
(EN) A stent introducer apparatus comprises a sheath for surrounding a stent member, with the sheath having a longitudinal slit extending from one end along at least a substantial part of the length thereof, and a sheath withdrawal device comprising a reel for winding up the sheath. A second sheath may surround the slit portion of the sheath. An intermediate guide member can smooth the withdrawal procedure and flatten the sheath before it is wound on the reel. The intermediate guide member may include at least one of a second reel or a slot-defining member. The reel may be operated by means of a gear system. A method of deploying a stent member is also provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil d'introduction de stent, qui comprend une gaine destinée à entourer un élément de stent, la gaine ayant une fente longitudinale s'étendant à partir d'une extrémité le long au moins une partie notable de la longueur de celle-ci, et un dispositif de retrait de gaine comprenant une bobine pour enrouler la gaine. Une seconde gaine peut entourer la partie de fente de la gaine. Un élément guide intermédiaire peut rendre plus régulière la procédure de retrait et aplatir la gaine avant qu'elle ne soit enroulée sur la bobine. L'élément guide intermédiaire peut comprendre au moins l'un parmi une seconde bobine ou un élément définissant une encoche. La bobine peut être actionnée au moyen d'un système d'engrenage. L'invention concerne également un procédé de déploiement d'un élément de stent.
