• catheter
  • The present invention pertains to a miniature flexible thrombectomy catheter having one or more flexible miniature noncollapsing tubular portions including pushable and torqueable structure for introduction into the smaller vessels in neurovascular regions. (google.com)
  • A cross stream thrombectomy catheter with a flexible and expandable cage preferably formed of nitinol for removal of hardened and aged thrombotic material stubbornly attached to the interior of a blood vessel. (google.fr)
  • 3 . The thrombectomy catheter of claim 2 , wherein the at least one outflow orifice and the at least one inflow orifice are located within the porous cage. (google.fr)
  • 6 . The thrombectomy catheter of claim 2 , wherein the porous cage is characterized, when radially expanded, by having an external surface suitable for loosening thrombus by converting thrombus to particulate form. (google.fr)
  • 7 . The thrombectomy catheter of claim 2 , wherein the porous cage includes nitinol. (google.fr)
  • 8 . The thrombectomy catheter of claim 7 , wherein the nitinol of the porous cage has a preset memory shape, which preset memory shape predisposes the porous cage to radially expand. (google.fr)
