Title: DEVICE FOR EMBEDDING A BALLOON, ARRANGED ON A CATHETER, IN AN IMPLANT, AND ASSOCIATED METHOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device for embedding a balloon (30), arranged on a catheter (29), in an implant (31) having an open-work structure, said device comprising a heating element (3). In order to enable a quick and economical embedding of the implant (31) in the balloon (30), an embedding mould (5) for arrangement in the heating element (3) is provided, wherein the embedding mould (5) has a cylindrical cavity (9), which is dimensioned in such a way that an assembly consisting of the catheter (29) with balloon (30) and the implant (31) mounted on the outer side of the balloon (30) can be arranged in the cavity (9) of the embedding mould (5), wherein a protective film (11) is provided between an inner wall of the cavity (9) of the embedding mould (5) and the assembly. The invention also relates to a corresponding method for embedding the balloon (30) in the implant (31).
