Title: COLLAPSIBLE MEDICAL DEVICE HAVING AN OPEN LUMEN
Abstract:
The present disclosure provides collapsible medical devices that are formed from a braided tubular member configured to allow the braided tubular member to be terminated into one or more marker bands while maintaining an open lumen from a proximal end to a distal end. The collapsible medical device including the braided tubular member can be easily pulled down into a delivery sheath or other delivery device so that it is suitable for use with a number of delivery devices. The marker bands, which provide one or more attachment points for a medical device/delivery system, are positioned at one or more locations on the braid such that the braid is fixed and cannot unravel, thus preventing entanglement between individual braid wires and malformation of the device.
