Title (EN) DISTAL TIP ASSEMBLY FOR A HEART VALVE DELIVERY CATHETER
(FR) ENSEMBLE POINTE DISTALE POUR CATHÉTER DE POSE DE VALVULE CARDIAQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A catheter assembly according to the present invention includes a handle assembly, an introducer sheath, and a distal tip assembly. The distal tip assembly can include first and second retaining sleeves and a slotted tip with a non-traumatic tip guard positioned at the proximal end of the slotted tip. The handle assembly can include a fixed main handle and two or more rotating handles that allow a user to control the distal tip assembly of the catheter. Each control knob on the handle assembly controls a portion of the components on the distal tip of the catheter by allowing for precise manipulation of various delivery shafts. Each delivery shaft extends from the handle assembly to respective positions towards the distal end of the catheter.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un ensemble cathéter comprenant un ensemble poignée, une gaine d'introducteur et un ensemble pointe distale. Ledit ensemble pointe distale peut comprendre un premier et un second manchon de retenue, et une pointe à fente pourvue d'une protection de pointe non traumatique sur l'extrémité proximale de la pointe à fente. Ledit ensemble poignée peut comprendre une poignée principale fixe et au moins deux poignées de rotation permettant à un utilisateur de commander l'ensemble pointe distale du cathéter. Chaque bouton de commande sur l'ensemble poignée commande une partie des composants sur la pointe distale du cathéter en permettant un maniement précis de diverses tiges de pose. Chaque tige de pose s'étend depuis l'ensemble poignée dans des positions respectives en direction de l'extrémité distale du cathéter.
