Title (EN) TISSUE REMOVAL APPARATUS AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING SAME
(FR) APPAREIL D'ABLATION DE TISSU ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION ASSOCIÉ
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus is disclosed for removing tissue from a patient's body. The apparatus comprises an elongate member defining a lumen and a tissue removal member disposed within the lumen. The tissue removal member comprises a flexible shaft formed from a plurality of strands, and a coil that is helically disposed around the shaft. The coil is substantially in contact with the shaft along a length of the shaft. The coil forms a plurality of outwardly extending projections and each pair of the plurality of outwardly extending projections defines a spacing therebetween. Upon rotation of the tissue removal member within the elongate member, material is conveyed through the lumen of the elongate member. A related method of manufacturing a tissue removal member is also disclosed.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil destiné à l'ablation de tissu du corps d'un patient. L'appareil comprend un élément allongé définissant une lumière et un élément d'ablation de tissu disposé à l'intérieur de la lumière. L'élément d'ablation de tissu comprend une tige flexible formée par une pluralité de brins, et une bobine disposée en hélice autour de la tige. La bobine est sensiblement en contact avec la tige sur une longueur de la tige. La bobine forme une pluralité de projections s'étendant vers l'extérieur et chaque paire de la pluralité de projections s'étendant vers l'extérieur définit un espace entre celles-ci. Sous l'effet de la rotation de l'élément d'ablation de tissu à l'intérieur de l'élément allongé, le matériau est acheminé à travers la lumière de l'élément allongé. La présente invention concerne en outre un procédé associé de fabrication d'un élément d'ablation de tissu.
