  • Publication number: 20210046277
    Abstract: Disclosed is a self-cleaning catheter system for fluid passage including a catheter, configured to be implanted in a body cavity of a subject and including at least one aperture fluidly coupling the catheter to the outside thereof, a cleaning unit configured for motion in the catheter such as to at least one of mechanically prevent, remove and mitigate occlusion in the at least one aperture, and an implantable controller. The cleaning unit is functionally associated with the controller, which is configured to (i) receive at least one signal indicative of a state of occlusion in the catheter, and (ii) provide an indication of the state of occlusion at least if the at least one signal indicates a blockage in the catheter and/or (iii) activate the cleaning unit if the at least one signal indicates a blockage of the catheter.

  • Publication number: 20200353231
    Abstract: Disclosed is an implantable catheter for fluid passage, including a catheter tube, a catheter tip member including one or more apertures and an open proximal end, and a cleaning unit at least partially positioned within the catheter tip member. The catheter tip member is connected at the proximal end thereof to the catheter tube, thereby fluidly coupling the catheter tube to an exterior of the catheter. The cleaning unit is configured for movement within the catheter tip member such as to mechanically prevent, mitigate, and/or remove blockage in the one or more apertures when the catheter tip member is implanted in a body cavity. The catheter tip member further includes a stopper configured to be engaged by a tip portion of a mandrel, such as to prevent the mandrel from reaching and/or damaging the cleaning unit when using the mandrel to guide the catheter tip member into the body cavity.
