Lot Summary

U.S. Patent 6,146,397 relates to an endarterectomy instrument and method for the treatment of atherosclerosis including a loop and a handle formed from a single strand of wire, the wire of the handle being twisted together to increase the rigidity thereof, but being sufficiently flexible to avoid perforation of the outer layer of the vessel. The angle and shape of the loop may be varied to fit the vessel. In some embodiments, the loop may be compressible to facilitate insertion through a small diameter lumen of a catheter. The loop is also malleable to allow personal modifications in the angle and shape of the loop. The loop is a disposable instrument. The remainder of the portfolio relates to a radially non-deformable surgical access catheter or sheath with a central lumen surrounded by plural peripheral lumens. This is a disposable instrument.
