Title (EN) DISTAL WIRE SECUREMENT IN STEERABLE CATHETER
(FR) FIXATION D'UN FIL DANS UN CATHÉTER ORIENTABLE.
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A secure attachment method and structure for a wire (including non- metallic fiber, yarn, cable, etc.) is provided within a steerable catheter that includes a proximal end, a distal end, and an intermediate catheter body length therebetween, with at least a first catheter lumen extending longitudinally through the catheter body, at least a first elongate wire disposed longitudinally through the first catheter lumen, and an adhesive substantially within, and securing the wire to, a distalmost length of the first longitudinal lumen, where at least a lengthwise portion of the wire is frayed or otherwise at least partially disaggregated, where that distalmost length may include side holes, a dilated inner diameter, or both. The structure and method provides for robustly secure affixation that will allow steering/deflection control by manipulation of another portion of the wire.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une structure de fixation sécuritaire pour un fil (y compris une fibre non métallique, un fil, un câble, etc.). Le cathéter orientable comprend une extrémité proximale, une extrémité distale et une longueur intermédiaire de cathéter entre celles-ci. Le fil passe à travers la lumière du cathéter, et un adhésif à l'intérieur fixe le fil à la longueur de la lumière. Une partie du fil est coupée ou désagrégée et la longueur peut avoir des trous latéraux, un diamètre interne dilaté, ou les deux. La structure assure une fixation solide qui permet d'être dirigée en manipulant une partie du fil.
