Title (EN) INTRODUCER SHEATH HAVING EXPANDABLE PORTIONS
(FR) GAINE D'INTRODUCTEUR PRÉSENTANT DES PARTIES EXTENSIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) An introducer sheath (300) includes a body (305) extending between a leading end (304) and a trailing end (302) and including a plurality of rectangular segments (310) extending from the leading end to the trailing end. The segments are joined to one another along longitudinal edges to form a tubular structure with a lumen (308) therethrough, the segments being joined at vertices (314). The body has a collapsed condition with a first cross-section and is configured to transition from the collapsed condition to an expanded condition with a second cross-section when an apparatus is passed through the lumen, the second cross-section having a maximum dimension larger than a maximum dimension of the first cross-section.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une gaine d'introducteur (300) qui comprend un corps (305) s'étendant entre une extrémité avant (304) et une extrémité arrière (302) et comprenant une pluralité de segments rectangulaires (310) s'étendant de l'extrémité avant à l'extrémité arrière. Les segments sont joints l'un à l'autre le long de bords longitudinaux pour former une structure tubulaire avec une lumière (308) à travers celle-ci, les segments étant reliés au niveau de sommets (314). Le corps a un état affaissé avec une première section transversale et est conçu pour passer de l'état affaissé à un état déployé avec une seconde section transversale lorsqu'un appareil traverse la lumière, la seconde section transversale ayant une dimension maximale supérieure à une dimension maximale de la première section transversale.
