Title: FLOW OCCLUSION DEVICE HAVING CIRCUMFERENTIAL FLUSHING
Abstract:
A blood occlusion device (10) includes a catheter shaft (12), and an expandable occlusion member (14) assembled with the catheter shaft (12). The expandable occlusion member (14) includes interconnecting struts (16). Distal ends of at least some of the struts (16) have a foldable protrusion (20) connected thereto by a hinge member (22). The foldable protrusions (20) pivot about at least some of the struts (16) in one or more directions. One or more connecting links (26) are connected to the foldable protrusions (20). Manipulation of the connecting links (26) and the foldable protrusions (20) modifies occlusion ability of the foldable protrusions (20). A covering (24) covers the foldable protrusions (20). The covering (24) is impervious to blood flow. An outer contour of the covering (24) includes one or more non-smooth portions (36).
