Title: EMBOLIC FILTER SYSTEM
Abstract:
Various aspects of the present disclosure are directed toward an embolic filter system. The embolic filter system generally includes a filter and an elongated element. In some examples, the elongate element extends to a position distal to a proximal end of the filter and operates to protect against medical devices entangling with the filter. In some examples, the elongate element is soft and compliant and operates with a hemostatic seal to provide for a hemostatic seal within a lumen of the elongate element while maintaining the lumen as a working lumen through which medical devices can be passed.
