Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TRANSNASAL DILATION OF PASSAGEWAYS IN THE EAR, NOSE OR THROAT
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE DILATATION TRANSNASALE DE PASSAGES DANS L'OREILLE, LE NEZ OU LA GORGE
Abstract
(EN)
A dilation catheter device and system for dilating an opening in a paranasal sinus and/or other passageways within the ear, nose or throat is disclosed. A dilation catheter device and system is constructed in a manner that facilitates ease of use by the operator and, in at least some cases, allows the dilation procedure to be performed by a single operator. Additionally, the dilation catheter device and system may be useable in conjunction with an endoscope and/or a fluoroscope to provide for easy manipulation and positioning of the devices and real time visualization of the entire procedure or selected portions thereof. In some embodiments, shaft markers are disposed on a shaft of the dilation catheter and have a light color to contrast with a dark color of the dilation catheter shaft. The high contrast between the markers and catheter shaft allows for easy viewing of the markers in low light and operation conditions.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un dispositif de cathéter de dilatation et sur un système de dilatation d'une ouverture dans un sinus paranasal et/ou d'autres passages à l'intérieur de l'oreille, du nez ou de la gorge. Un dispositif de cathéter de dilatation et système sont réalisés d'une façon améliorant la facilité d'utilisation par un opérateur et, dans au moins certains cas, permettant à un opérateur unique d'exécuter la procédure de dilatation. De plus, on peut utiliser le dispositif de cathéter de dilatation et le système en association avec un endoscope et/ou un fluoroscope afin de permettre une manipulation et un positionnement aisés des dispositifs et une visualisation en temps réel de la totalité de la procédure ou de parties sélectionnées de celle-ci. Dans certains modes de réalisation, des marqueurs d'arbre sont disposés sur un arbre du cathéter de dilatation et ont une couleur claire destinée à contraster avec une couleur sombre de l'arbre de cathéter de dilatation. Le contraste élevé entre les marqueurs et l'arbre de cathéter permet une visualisation aisée des marqueurs dans des conditions médiocres de lumière et de fonctionnement.
