Catheter Introducer - Novel peel-away sheath introducer set (PASIS) with integrated sealing system

27.07.2010
The introduction of a device (e.g. a catheter) into a vessel of the human or animal body to accomplish a medical procedure is accompanied with some fundamental problems. The device must be inserted through a puncture site in the vessel wall into the lumen of the vessel what causes bleeding and maybe wall trauma. To minimize this risks sheath introducers and hemostatic agents are used. Despite these approaches the problems havn´t been fully solved yet and a reliable, safe and easy to use device and method are still needed.

The invention presented here overcomes the limitations of the prior art and provides a catheter introducing system by means of which bleeding can be prevented and wall trauma can be minimized. The innovative device combines a peel-away sheath introducer set with a splittable hemostasis valve and an integrated sealing system. The new peel-away introducer set is composed of three coaxial arranged peelable cannulae: an access cannula, a pusher and a sealing cannula. The pusher and the sealing cannula are mounted on the access cannula in a movable manner. A collagen cuff is integrated into the sealing cannula in such a way that the collagen can be positioned by the pusher at the puncture site where the collagen acts as a surgical sealant. This system allows an effective sealing of the puncture wound after removal of the access cannula. In addition, the introducer set contains a splittable hemostasis valve to prevent reflux of liquid (e.g. blood) from the punctured vessel during the implantation procedure. The present invention could be used for procedures where a device has to be introduced into a vessel of the human or animal body. As an example the sheath introducer can be applied to establish a fully implantable and telemetrically controlled blood pressure system comprising an implant with a sensor and a telemetry unit which is connected via micro-cable with the sensor.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
