  • Publication number: 20180280594
    Abstract: An interventional catheter assembly comprising a catheter for insertion and guidance to a target site in a body lumen or a cavity and an operating head mounted in proximity to a distal end of the catheter and comprising a system for removing obstructive material from the target site is provided. In certain embodiments, the catheter assembly includes at least one aspiration port located proximal to the operating head that communicates with a first sealed lumen for withdrawing fluids and obstructive material from the target site. The catheter assembly may also include at least one liquid infusion port that communicates with a second sealed lumen for supplying fluid to a location in proximity to the target site. Kits including the interventional catheter assembly with an aspiration and/or infusion conduit are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20170209056
    Abstract: Self-calibrating sensor assemblies for excess body fluid drainage systems are disclosed herein. Self-calibrating sensor assemblies can include a sensor assembly engaged with a flexible interface member of a drainage catheter. The assembly includes a sensor having a body and a shaft extending from the body. A contact member is slidably mated with the shaft and coupled to the flexible interface member. A resilient member is coupled to the sensor shaft and disposed between the contact member and the body. An actuator moves the sensor between a first position and a second position with respect to the drainage catheter. In the first position the sensor is positioned to measure the pressure and/or force at the flexible interface member, and in the second position the resilient member exerts a known force on the sensor.

  • Patent number: 9144665
    Abstract: Sheath assemblies incorporating slotted structures at one or more areas provide areas of different flexibility and bendability characteristics along the length of the sheath assembly. An inner tubular member has an arrangement of discontinuous slots along at least a portion of its length, with at least some of the slots terminating in an enlarged aperture at at least one terminus of the slot, and a flexible outer tubular member contacts and extends over at least a portion of the inner tubular member.

  • Patent number: 8394078
    Abstract: An interventional catheter assembly comprises an operating head for removing obstructive material from a target site in a body lumen or cavity and at least one aspiration port located proximal to the operating head and penetrating the catheter assembly, the aspiration port being in communication with a sealed lumen that communicates with a vacuum system for withdrawing aspirate fluid and obstructive material from the target site. The interventional catheter incorporates an elongated guidewire lumen bushing extending proximally from a distal region of the operating head to reduce the clearance between the guidewire and the internal surface of the guidewire lumen during operation of the interventional catheter. This feature restricts entry of fluid and debris into the guidewire lumen and promotes maintenance of consistent and high aspiration pressure and volume during operation of the aspiration system and interventional catheter assembly.
