Title
(EN) CRIMPING DEVICES
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE PINCEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of crimping devices for crimping stented prosthetic valves and other medical devices from a larger, expanded diameter to a smaller, crimped diameter are disclosed. Some crimping devices utilize a conical surface extending out-of-plane from the direction of crimping, where motion of the conical surface in the out-of-plane direction causes in-plane radially crimping. Other crimping devices comprise a funnelshaped rigid body having a tapered inner lumen that compresses a medical device moving therethrough. Some funnel-shaped embodiments have slotted sides that allow portions of the medical device to project therethrough. Other funnel-shaped embodiments are used with a tubular sock to pull the medical device through the tapered lumen. Other crimping devices utilize rotating rollers that compress a medical device while the medical device spins between the rollers.

Conformément à des modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des dispositifs de pincement qui permettent de pincer des valvules prothétiques en endoprothèse et d'autres dispositifs médicaux afin de les faire passer d'un diamètre déployé plus grand à un diamètre pincé plus petit. Certains dispositifs de pincement utilisent une surface conique s'étendant hors du plan à partir de la direction de pincement, le déplacement de la surface conique dans la direction hors du plan provoquant un pincement radialement dans le plan. D'autres dispositifs de pincement comportent un corps rigide en forme d'entonnoir ayant une lumière interne conique qui comprime un dispositif médical se déplaçant à travers celle-ci. Certains modes de réalisation en forme d'entonnoir ont des côtés à fentes qui permettent à des parties du dispositif médical de faire saillie à travers celles-ci. D'autres modes de réalisation en forme d'entonnoir sont utilisés avec une chaussette tubulaire afin de tirer le dispositif médical à travers la lumière conique. Encore d'autres dispositifs de pincement utilisent des rouleaux rotatifs qui compriment un dispositif médical tandis que le dispositif médical tourne entre les rouleaux.
