Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR STEERING GUIDEWIRES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DESTINÉS À DIRIGER DES FILS-GUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments of the present disclosure can include a system for steering a guidewire comprising: a guidewire tip integrably connected to a guidewire, the guidewire tip comprising a hollow body having first joint and second joints comprising a plurality of asymmetric recesses in the hollow body; a plurality of tendons operably connected to the first and second joints; and a control unit operably connected to the tendons and configured to actuate the tendons to provide multiple degrees of freedom of movement to the guidewire tip.
(FR) La présente invention concerne, selon des modes de réalisation, un système destiné à diriger un fil-guide comprenant : une pointe de fil-guide reliée d'un seul tenant à un fil-guide, la pointe de fil-guide comprenant un corps creux comprenant des première et seconde articulations comprenant une pluralité d'évidements asymétriques dans le corps creux ; une pluralité de tendons reliés fonctionnellement aux première et seconde articulations ; et une unité de commande reliée fonctionnellement aux tendons et conçue pour actionner les tendons afin de procurer de multiples degrés de liberté de mouvement à la pointe de fil-guide.
