Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR IMPROVED ACCESS OF PROCEDURAL CATHETER IN TORTUOUS VESSELS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR UN ACCÈS AMÉLIORÉ D'UN CATHÉTER D'INTERVENTION DANS DES VAISSEAUX SINUEUX
Abstract:
(EN) Tortuosity of vessels at or leading to the site of minimally invasive procedures is a problem for conducting such procedures as they increase the difficulty to guide the procedural catheters through tortuous vessels. Methods and apparatus for stabilization of the sheaths and catheters during access, procedures, and withdrawal in these tortuous vessels are disclosed. The apparatus and method for improving access include application of a pull component to the stabilized procedural catheter using a stabilization catheter/wire in addition to a push component from the percutaneous access to make the access easier while enabling use of more flexible catheters and softer wires. These methods and devices address the problems of trauma to the vessels during access, procedure and removal of catheters and wires, improve pushability of softer catheters and wires, and also substantially reduce substantially the procedure time.
(FR) Selon l'invention, la sinuosité des vaisseaux au niveau du site d'interventions minimalement invasives ou menant à ce site est un problème pour la réalisation de telles interventions car elle augmente la difficulté à guider les cathéters d'intervention à travers les vaisseaux sinueux. L'invention concerne des procédés et appareils de stabilisation des gaines et des cathéters pendant l'accès, les interventions et le retrait dans lesdits vaisseaux sinueux. L'appareil et le procédé permettant d'améliorer l'accès comprennent l'application d'un composant de traction au cathéter d'intervention stabilisé à l'aide d'un cathéter/fil de stabilisation en plus d'un composant de poussée à partir de l'accès percutané pour faciliter l'accès tout en permettant l'utilisation de cathéters plus souples et de fils moins rigides. Lesdits procédés et dispositifs résolvent les problèmes de traumatisme des vaisseaux pendant l'accès, l'intervention et le retrait de cathéters et de fils, améliorent la capacité de poussée de cathéters et de fils plus souples, et réduisent également sensiblement la durée d'intervention.
