  • Publication number: 20210060298
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to an implantation catheter for implanting a vascular implant into a vessel of a human or animal, comprising a catheter shaft having a proximal end and a distal end, a vascular implant carried by the catheter shaft, and a pressure sensor for sensing a vascular pressure at the distal end. The implantation catheter comprises an inflatable balloon arranged circumferentially around an outside of the catheter shaft in a distal end section of the catheter shaft. Also, a method for implanting a vascular implant into a vessel of a human or an animal is provided.

  • Patent number: 8583258
    Abstract: A flexible electrode lead in particular for use with a medical implant comprises, an elongated electrode body with a proximal and a distal end, at least one conductor leading from the proximal towards the distal end of the electrode lead, a first ring element at the distal end of the electrode lead connected to the conductor and being positioned coaxially in the lead electrode body a second ring element spaced distally of the first ring element and being positioned coaxially in the lead electrode body, a coil conductor between the first and second ring element, wherein the coil conductor is adapted to form an inductance which is in parallel circuitry with the capacitor to form a filter element in the conductor, and the first ring element, the coil conductor and the second ring element comprise a central feedthrough for a guidance element for the electrode lead.
