  • Patent number: 10478203
    Abstract: A snare instrument has a snare structure which is formed in one piece from a tube section, by the latter being slit and bent open, and which has a proximal base portion and, extending axially forward from the latter, a distal snaring portion, and which is movable between a snaring position, in which it is moved forward out of an enclosure with the snaring portion folded open, and a securing position, in which it is moved back at least partially into the enclosure with the snaring portion folded in and providing a securing action. The snaring portion, in the folded-open state, has a cup shape with a distal snare opening. For this purpose, a distal end area of the tube section is provided with open axial slits of suitable length introduced from the direction of the distal end of the tube section, and, lying between these, with associated closed axial slits which terminate at a distance in front of the distal end of the tube section and are of greater length than the open axial slits.

  • Patent number: 10449328
    Abstract: A packaged catheter assembly includes a urinary catheter, a package, and a seal. The urinary catheter has a tube section connected between a proximal end and a distal end, and the proximal end of the urinary catheter is insertable into a urinary bladder.
