  • Publication number: 20190083695
    Abstract: A percutaneous catheter provides an adjustable diameter in order to reduce pressure loss, maintain a required flow, and avoid increasing a load to the patient. A catheter tube is formed of braided wires in an intersecting manner and extends in an axial direction. A distal tip is affixed to a distal side of the catheter tube and is configured to engaged a distal end of a dilator. The catheter tube includes a non-coated portion on a proximal side of the distal tip and a coated portion embedded in a resin material. An inner diameter of the non-coated portion is larger than an outer diameter of the dilator. When the dilator is fully inserted through the percutaneous catheter, the non-coated portion expands in the axial direction, reducing its in inner diameter so that an inner surface of the non-coated portion comes into tight contact with an outer surface of the dilator.

  • Publication number: 20190030280
    Abstract: A percutaneous catheter for an extracorporeal blood circulator has a tubular reinforcement body comprised of a plurality of wires braided in a reticulated manner. The braided wires include first wires wound in a first helical direction and second wires wound in a second helical direction crossing the first wires to define regular gap portions. A portion of the first and second wires are deviated from the helical directions to enlarge a selected gap portion into a first opening portion. A resin layer coats the reinforcement body and includes a second opening portion coincident with the first opening portion to form a side hole for fluid communication between an interior lumen and an exterior of the catheter. A continuous reinforcement is provided between longitudinal ends of the tubular reinforcement body including a longitudinal region of the side hole.
