Title (EN) INTERVENTIONAL MEDICAL SYSTEMS, CATHETERS, AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES, CATHÉTERS ET PROCÉDÉS MÉDICAUX INTERVENTIONNELS
Abstract:
(EN) A device receptacle of a catheter resides in a sidewall thereof, which includes a proximal section, a central section extending distally from the proximal section, and a distal section extending distally from the central section. A length of the central section is approximately 30% of an overall length of the sidewall; the proximal and distal sections have approximately the same stiffness; and a stiffness of the central section, formed from a polymer material without any structural reinforcement or any other member embedded therein, is significantly less than that of the proximal and distal sections. When an operator causes the receptacle sidewall to buckle, a distal opening of a chamber of the receptacle becomes aligned with an implanted device so that the operator can bring the implanted device into the chamber to retrieve the device from the implant site.
(FR) Un réceptacle de dispositif d'un cathéter est situé dans une paroi latérale de celui-ci, qui comprend une section proximale, une section centrale s'étendant de façon distale depuis la section proximale, et une section distale s'étendant distalement depuis la section centrale. Une longueur de la section centrale est approximativement 30 % d'une longueur totale de la paroi latérale ; les sections proximale et distale ont approximativement la même rigidité ; et la rigidité de la section centrale, formée d'un matériau polymère sans renforcement structural ou tout autre élément incorporé dans celle-ci, est significativement inférieure à celle des sections proximale et distale. Lorsqu'un opérateur amène la paroi latérale de réceptacle à se déformer, une ouverture distale d'une chambre du réceptacle devient alignée avec un dispositif implanté de sorte que l'opérateur puisse amener le dispositif implanté dans la chambre pour extraire le dispositif du site d'implant.
