Title
(EN) ENGAGED FIDUCIALS AND SYSTEM FOR DEPLOYMENT
(FR) REPÈRES ENGAGÉS ET SYSTÈME DE DÉPLOIEMENT
Abstract
(EN) Embodiments include a fiducial deployment system including a needle and at least two adjacent and releasably-engaged fiducials retained within a lumen of the needle by engagement with each other and/or by engagement with a pusher element. A fiducial may include one or more mechanical engagement structures that interengage with and/or are rupturably attached to one or more adjacent fiducials. The needle, which may include echogenic enhancements, may be configured to deliver a plurality of fiducials to a target location in serial fashion, one at a time. A variety of releasably-engaged fiducials are disclosed, as are methods for use.
(FR) Conformément à des modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne un système de déploiement de repère comprenant une aiguille et au moins deux repères adjacents et engagés de manière libérable retenus à l'intérieur d'une lumière de l'aiguille par engagement l'un avec l'autre et/ou par engagement avec un élément pousseur. Un repère peut comprendre une ou plusieurs structures d'engagement mécanique qui s'engagent avec un ou plusieurs repères adjacents et/ou sont fixées de façon à pouvoir être rompues avec un ou plusieurs repères adjacents. L'aiguille, qui peut comprendre des améliorations échogéniques, peut être configurée pour distribuer une pluralité de repères à un emplacement cible en série, un à la fois. L'invention concerne également une diversité de repères engagés de manière libérable, ainsi que des procédés d'utilisation.
