Title: INTERVENTIONAL MEDICAL SYSTEMS FOR THERAPY DELIVERY IN EXTRACARDIOVASCULAR SPACES AND ASSOCIATED TOOLS AND METHODS
Abstract:
A tool for inserting an elongate medical device into a body includes a track (457) (e.g. defined by inner surfaces of a base wall and opposing sidewalls), and a deployment assembly for moving the device along the track. A retainer (46R) of the assembly, fitted in sliding engagement within the track and limited to move only along a portion of the track, grips a first portion of a proximal length of the device; a slider (46S) of the assembly, also fitted in sliding engagement within the track and detachably joined to the retainer, receives a second portion of the device proximal length. When detached from the retainer, the slider is free to move along a distal length of the device, and can be moved along a distal segment of the track to disengage therefrom by separating from a distal terminal end of the guide.
