Title (EN) MEDICAL LEAD WITH SEGMENTED ELECTRODES
(FR) DÉRIVATION MÉDICALE AYANT DES ÉLECTRODES SEGMENTÉES
Abstract:
(EN) An assembly for forming a medical lead includes a lead body, a plurality of electrical conductors extending about a longitudinal axis of the lead body, and at least one segmented electrode preform that includes an electrically conductive ring and an insulator portion within the electrically conductive ring. The electrically conductive ring includes a plurality of electrode portions and a plurality of raised portions that alternate continuously around the ring. Each of the plurality of electrode portions is continuous at a radius from a center of the electrically conductive ring that corresponds to an outer perimeter of the medical lead. The insulator portion has a plurality of projections each extending into a respective raised portion of the ring beyond a radius that corresponds to the outer perimeter of the medical lead. Each respective electrode portion is electrically coupled to a respective electrical conductor of the plurality of electrical conductors.
(FR) Un ensemble pour former une dérivation médicale comprend un corps de dérivation, une pluralité de conducteurs électriques s'étendant autour d'un axe longitudinal du corps de dérivation, et au moins une préforme d'électrode segmentée qui comprend un anneau électro-conducteur et une partie isolante à l'intérieur de l'anneau électro-conducteur. L'anneau électro-conducteur comprend une pluralité de parties d'électrode et une pluralité de parties surélevées qui alternent de façon continue autour de l'anneau. Chacune de la pluralité de parties d'électrode est continue à un rayon à partir d'un centre de l'anneau électro-conducteur qui correspond à un périmètre extérieur de la dérivation médicale. La partie isolante comporte une pluralité de saillies s'étendant chacune dans une partie surélevée respective de l'anneau au-delà d'un rayon qui correspond au périmètre extérieur de la dérivation médicale. Chaque partie d'électrode respective est électriquement couplée à un conducteur électrique respectif de la pluralité de conducteurs électriques.
