Title (EN) EXPANDABLE INTRODUCER SHEATH FOR MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) GAINE D’INTRODUCTION EXTENSIBLE POUR DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL
Abstract:
(EN) An expandable medical sheath can include a sheath body having a lumen that extends between proximal and distal ends of the sheath. The sheath can have first and second members where the first member has a different elastic modulus than the second member such that one provides elasticity to the sheath and the other provides column strength. The first and second members can be coupled together in alternating sections to form the tubular sheath or the stiffer members can be embedded in the elastic member along all or a portion of the longitudinal length of the sheath. The sheath can automatically move to an expanded state to allow a larger diameter medical device to pass through the lumen, and once through the sheath can automatically return to its initial diameter.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une gaine médicale extensible pouvant comprendre un corps de gaine ayant une lumière qui s’étend entre les extrémités proximale et distale de la gaine. La gaine peut présenter un premier et un second élément, le premier élément présentant un module élastique différent du second élément de sorte que l’un fournit l’élasticité à la gaine et l’autre fournit la résistance colonnaire. Le premier et le second élément peuvent être reliés l'un à l'autre en sections alternées pour former la gaine tubulaire ou les éléments raidisseurs peuvent être enchâssés dans l’élément élastique le long de l’ensemble ou d’une partie de la longueur longitudinale de la gaine. La gaine peut se déplacer automatiquement vers un état expansé pour permettre à un dispositif médical de plus grand diamètre de passer à travers la lumière, puis la gaine peut revenir automatiquement à son diamètre initial.
