Title (EN) DEVICE FOR AND METHOD OF LOADING STENTS INTO DELIVERY TUBES
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE CHARGEMENT D'ENDOPROTHÈSES À L'INTÉRIEUR DE TUBES D'ADMINISTRATION
Abstract:
(EN) A stent loading device is configured to perform a method of loading a stent into a delivery tube that comprises loading a stent into an opening of a crimping device. The stent has an initial uncompressed diameter. The method further comprises crimping the stent via the crimping device in a manner reducing the diameter of the stent from the initial diameter. Still further, the method comprises forcing the stent out of the opening of the crimping device and into a passageway of a delivery tube while oscillating the crimping device. The passageway of the delivery tube has a diameter that is less than the initial diameter of the stent and receives the stent in its compressed state.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de chargement d'endoprothèses configuré pour mettre en œuvre un procédé de chargement d'une endoprothèse à l'intérieur d'un tube d'administration, comprenant le chargement d'une endoprothèse à l'intérieur d'une ouverture d'un dispositif de gaufrage. L'endoprothèse a un diamètre initial non comprimé. Le procédé comprend en outre le gaufrage de l'endoprothèse par le biais du dispositif de gaufrage de manière à réduire le diamètre de l'endoprothèse par rapport au diamètre initial. De plus, le procédé comprend l'étape consistant à forcer l'endoprothèse à sortir de l'ouverture du dispositif de gaufrage et à rentrer à l'intérieur de la voie de passage d'un tube d'administration en faisant osciller le dispositif de gaufrage. La voie de passage du tube d'administration a un diamètre qui est inférieur au diamètre initial de l'endoprothèse et ne peut recevoir l'endoprothèse que sous sa forme comprimée.
