Title (EN) ELECTRICALLY-INDUCED FLUID FILLED BALLOON CATHETER
(FR) CATHÉTER À BALLONNET REMPLI DE LIQUIDE ET ACTIONNÉ ÉLECTRIQUEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates generally to the use of medical devices for the treatment of vascular conditions. In particular, the present disclosure provides devices and methods for using electrically-induced pressure waves to disrupt vascular blockages. The present disclosure not only provides devices and methods for using electrically-induced pressure waves to disrupt vascular blockages, but the present disclosure also provides devices and method for assisting the guidewire in penetrating an occlusion, devices and method for using a sealable valve in the tip of the balloon catheter to reduce the overall size and diameter of the balloon catheter, thereby allowing the balloon catheter to penetrate smaller size blood vessels and devices. Given the persistence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral artery disease (PAD), there remains a need for improved therapeutic methods designed not only to reduce vascular blockages in the short term, but also to prevent future complications such as restenosis.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte d'une manière générale à l'utilisation de dispositifs médicaux pour le traitement d'affections vasculaires. En particulier, la présente invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés d'utilisation d'ondes de pression induites électriquement afin de disloquer les obstructions vasculaires. La présente invention concerne non seulement des dispositifs et des procédés d'utilisation d'ondes de pression induites électriquement pour disloquer les obstructions vasculaires, mais concerne également des dispositifs et un procédé pour aider le fil de guidage à pénétrer dans une occlusion, des dispositifs et un procédé pour utiliser une valve refermable à la pointe du cathéter à ballonnet pour réduire la taille totale et le diamètre du cathéter à ballonnet, permettant ainsi au cathéter à ballonnet de pénétrer dans des vaisseaux sanguins et des instruments de plus petite taille. Étant donné la chronicité des maladies artérielles coronariennes (CAD) et des maladies artérielles périphériques (PAD), il subsiste un besoin en méthodes thérapeutiques améliorées permettant non seulement de réduire les obstructions vasculaires à court terme, mais aussi de prévenir les complications futures telles que la resténose.
