Title (EN) CONTROLLED BALLOON DEPLOYMENT
(FR) DÉPLOIEMENT COMMANDÉ DE BALLONNET
Abstract:
(EN) The methods and devices disclosed herein promote temporal control of balloon inflation patterns. The devices include a covering for a portion of the balloon that compresses the balloon portion during the inflation process. This enables the distal portion of a balloon to be inflated prior to the proximal portion of a balloon, creating a tapered shape at lower inflation pressures. This is especially useful during transvascular implantation procedures, as it prevents dislodgement of an implant mounted on the balloon. As inflation continues, pressure exerted on the balloon by the covering is overcome such that the proximal region of the balloon inflates, forming a shape with generally straighter sides than the tapered shape, thereby expanding the cardiovascular device.
(FR) Les procédés et les dispositifs selon l'invention favorisent la commande temporelle de configurations de gonflage de ballonnet. Les dispositifs comprennent un revêtement pour une partie de ballonnet qui comprime cette dernière pendant le processus de gonflage. Ceci permet de gonfler la partie distale d'un ballonnet avant la partie proximale, et de créer ainsi une forme conique à de faibles pressions de gonflage. Cela est notamment utile pendant des interventions d'implantation transvasculaire, puisque cela empêche le déplacement d'un implant monté sur le ballonnet. Au fur et à mesure que se poursuit le gonflage, la pression exercée sur le ballonnet par le revêtement est maîtrisée de sorte que la région proximale du ballonnet se gonfle, créant une forme aux côtés généralement plus droits que la forme conique, ce qui permet de dilater le dispositif cardio-vasculaire.
