Catheter Having A Core Wire And A Low Profile Bond

View page
US Patent:
8267886, Sep 18, 2012
Filed:
Dec 19, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/339686
Inventors:
Benjamin T. Ewing - Wexford PA, US
Gregory A. Brucker - Minneapolis MN, US
Scott A. Bednar - Freedom PA, US
John R. Periard - North Huntington PA, US
Assignee:
Medrad, Inc. - Indianola PA
International Classification:
A61M 29/00
A61M 25/00
US Classification:
604 9601, 604284
Abstract:
A catheter having a shaft that has at least two spaced-apart lumens is disclosed. A retractable core wire is disposed within at least one of the lumens. The retractable core wire is manipulated by the user to impart variable stiffness to the shaft as the core wire is retracted and extended within the lumen. A catheter having substantially low profile bonds at the junctions where an inflatable balloon is attached to the catheter is also disclosed. The low profile bonds are created by recesses extending around the circumference of the distal end of the shaft, the proximal and distal ends of a stem, and the proximal end of a tip. The catheter having the low profile bond optionally has either a retractable or an embedded core wire. In examples, the catheter has at least one component formed from, co-extruded with, or coated with a lubricious material or a hydrophilic material.

International Classification:
B23P 11/00
A61L 33/18
US Classification:
29428, 427 225
Abstract:
Various methods for optimizing coating of medical devices, such as balloon catheters are disclosed. One method configures catheter balloon folds based on balloon diameter and volume. Other methods include using a specifically-sized protective sheath, using a vacuum, using pressure, pulling the balloon through a coating solution, using at least one spacer or a wick between at least one fold for metering a therapeutic coating into the folds of the balloon, placing an intermediate layer between the balloon and the therapeutic coating, placing a soluble film having a therapeutic agent around the catheter balloon or inside the folds, and any combination thereof. Balloon catheters and catheter balloons having a specific folding configuration, a specifically-sized protective sheath, an intermediate layer, or a soluble film are also disclosed.
