Title (EN) REDUCED MATERIAL TIP FOR CATHETER AND METHOD OF FORMING SAME
(FR) POINTE DE MATÉRIAU RÉDUITE POUR CATHÉTER ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FORMATION
Abstract:
(EN) Method for fabricating a catheter including providing an inner tubular member formed from a first polymeric material, the inner tubular member having a distal section, a distal end, and a lumen defined therein by a first inner diameter; necking down at least a portion of the distal section of the inner tubular member to form a necked tip having a second inner diameter; and removing a portion of polymeric material from an inner surface along the necked tip to define a third inner diameter for the necked tip. The method can include positioning the distal section of the inner tubular member in a balloon having a working length, a distal neck, and a distal leg, with the distal end of the inner tubular member extending distally beyond a distal end of the distal leg, and coupling the distal leg of the balloon to at least a portion of the distal section of the inner tubular member.
(FR) Procédé de fabrication d'un cathéter consistant à produire un élément tubulaire intérieur constitué d'un premier matériau polymère, l'élément tubulaire intérieur possédant une section distale, une extrémité distale et une lumière délimitée dans celui-ci par un premier diamètre intérieur; à rétreindre au moins une partie de la section distale de l'élément tubulaire intérieur afin de former une pointe rétreinte ayant un deuxième diamètre intérieur; et à retirer une partie de matériau polymère d'une surface intérieure le long de la pointe rétreinte afin de délimiter un troisième diamètre intérieur pour la pointe rétreinte. Le procédé peut consister à positionner la section distale de l'élément tubulaire intérieur dans un ballonnet ayant une longueur de travail, un col distal et une patte distale, l'extrémité distale de l'élément tubulaire intérieur s'étendant de façon distale au-delà d'une extrémité distale de la patte distale, et accouplant la patte distale du ballonnet à au moins une partie de la section distale de l'élément tubulaire intérieur.
