  • Patent number: 8088121
    Abstract: A catheter enabling an increase in operability when the catheter is inserted from the outside to the inside of a body and capable of remarkably reducing the risk of damage to shafts even in an unforeseen accident without complicating steps and increasing production cost. The catheter comprises at least the distal side shaft formed of a resin tube, the rear end side shaft with a higher rigidity than that of the distal side shaft, and a guide wire lumen. The catheter is characterized in that a core wire is disposed therein to adjust a flexibility so that the rear end portion of the distal side shaft is harder than the distal end portion of the distal side shaft and softer than the rear end side shaft, and the core wire is fixed to the distal side shaft near the rear end side opening part of the guide wire lumen and at a part of the rear end side portion of the distal end shaft.

  • Patent number: 7244250
    Abstract: Provided is an aspiration catheter which does not require a large-scale device, has a largest possible aspiration lumen, and is sufficiently flexible to track tortuous blood vessels following a guidewire, thereby being easily advanced to a target site to be treated. In the aspiration catheter, the tip of the main shaft is obliquely cut, the distal end of the guidewire shaft is positioned at the distal end of the main shaft or protrudes from the distal end of the main shaft in the distal direction, and the relationships 0.5?L2/L1 and L2?L1?5 mm are satisfied, wherein L1 is the length of the obliquely cut portion of the main shaft in the longitudinal direction of the catheter, and L2 is the length from the proximal end of the guidewire shaft to the distal end of the main shaft.

  • Patent number: 6960186
    Abstract: The present invention is a balloon catheter used primarily in treatment and surgery for the purpose of dilating lesion sites such as strictures or blockages in passages in the human body. The balloon catheter of the present invention has a structure wherein a guide wire passing tubular member is deployed passing through the interior of the expansion body, and the outer surface of the tubular member and the expansion body are concentrically fused near the distal end of the catheter. This is a balloon catheter that is characterized by the fact that the Shore hardness of the material configuring the outermost surface of the tubular member is smaller than the Shore hardness of the material configuring the expansion body. It is therefore possible to flexibly adjust the tip portion formed by securing the expansion body and the guide wire passing tubular member.

  • Publication number: 20040102834
    Abstract: The present invention provides a stent which is flexible in the axial direction prior to the expansion of the stent, which shows no contraction in the axial length of the stent during expansion of the stent, which has an extremely large resistance to forces exerted by contracting blood vessels after expansion, which can cause uniform expansion of the struts of the stent, and in which there is no problem of the end portions of the stent warping to a greater diameter than the central portion of the stent at the time of expansion, furthermore a stent in which the size of the basic cells that constitute the stent is reduced so that bulging of endothelial cells of vascular tissues into the inside of the stent is suppressed, furthermore a stent which allows Y stenting into branched blood vessels while maintaining a high radial force and superior scaffold properties.

  • Patent number: 6706010
    Abstract: It is an object of the present invention to provide a balloon catheter in which the inner tube is prevented from slackening after balloon inflation, improving the rewrapping of the balloon, discontinuity in the rigidity of the joined portions of the outer tube and the balloon is lessened, which prevents breakage, and the catheter advances through blood vessels better and passes more easily through narrow segments, preventing the catheter from “accordioning” and enhancing insertion force transmission. The balloon catheter pertaining to the present invention has a catheter shaft (1) with a double-tube structure comprising an outer tube (4) and an inner tube (5), and a balloon (3) disposed at the distal end portion of this catheter shaft (1).

  • Patent number: 6613066
    Abstract: A balloon catheter 1 is configured so as to comprise a catheter shaft 2 formed by joining a proximal-side tubular member 3 and a distal-side tubular member 4, an adapter member 6 connected to the base end of the catheter shaft 2, and a balloon 5 joined to the distal end of the catheter shaft 2. A metal coiled elastic member 10 is deployed in the internal space in the adapter member 6, so that it can move toward the distal end. This coiled elastic body 10 abuts on a ring-shaped wall part 11a formed on the outer circumferential surface of the base end of an elastic force transmitting member 11 and supports the elastic force transmitting member 11 to the distal side. The leading end of a linear member 12 that is one of the components of the elastic force transmitting member 11 reaches to an internal space 5f in the balloon and is bonded to the outer circumferential surface of a guide wire passing tube 7.
