Combination sheath and catheter for cardiovascular use

A vascular interventional device may be introduced over a guidewire into a vessel of the cardiovascular system of a patient. This device includes a hollow, flexible tube having a proximal end and a distal end that is adapted to selectively engage a target vessel of the cardiovascular system of the patient. This tube also includes a lumen that is continuous from the proximal to the distal end, and has an end hole in the distal end that is in fluid communication with the lumen. A plurality of side holes are provided near the distal end of the tube, each of which is in continuous fluid communication with the lumen. The device also includes a hollow vessel dilator that is adapted for insertion into and through the tube and over the guidewire. The dilator has an inside diameter that is slightly larger than the guidewire and an outside diameter that is slightly smaller than the diameter of the lumen of the tube. The distal end of the dilator is adapted to accommodate vascular entry over the guidewire, and the dilator is adapted to dilate the vessel to accept the tube. The device also includes a hub at the proximal end of the tube. The hub includes an end port through which a second interventional device having an outside diameter smaller than the diameter of the lumen may be introduced into the lumen of the tube. The hub also includes a side port through which a fluid agent may be injected for delivery through the lumen and out the end hole and side holes of the tube. A sealing mechanism is also provided in the hub to prevent air from entering the tube and blood and other fluids from leaking out of the tube through the hub. A pair of vascular interventional devices, at least one of which is constructed according to the invention, may be utilized to treat or study a cardiovascular condition, or to measure the blood pressure across a vascular segment.

Method for treating a cardiovascular condition

A pair of vascular interventional devices, at least one of which includes a hollow, flexible tube and a dilator that is adapted for insertion into and through the tube and over a guidewire, may be utilized to treat or study a cardiovascular condition, or to measure the blood pressure across a vascular segment. The first device also includes a hub with an end port through which a second device may be introduced into and through the tube. The hub also includes a side port through which a fluid agent may be injected for delivery through the tube or through which pressures can be measured. A guidewire is inserted into a vessel of the cardiovascular system of a patient in the conventional manner. The dilator of the first device is then inserted into the tube and the dilator and tube are then inserted into the vessel over the guidewire and positioned in the target area. The dilator is then withdrawn through the tube from the cardiovascular system of the patient. A second interventional device is selected to treat or study the cardiovascular condition, and the second device is introduced through the end port of the hub of the first device. The second interventional device is advanced over the guidewire to the distal end of the tube of the first device, and the guidewire is then removed. The second interventional device is employed to treat or study the cardiovascular condition. If a pressure transducer is placed on the side port of the first device, as well as on the second device, the second device may be advanced beyond the end of the first device so that the blood pressure may be measured simultaneously at the end of the tube of the first interventional device (the first location) and at the end of the second interventional device (the second location). The difference in blood pressure, if any, between the first and second locations may then be calculated.

Catheter devices and methods for their use in the treatment of calcified vascular occlusions

Catheter devices and methods for their use in enhancing fluid flow through a vascular site occupied by a vascular occlusion are provided. The subject catheter devices include at least a first, second and third lumen, where: (a) the first lumen is used for delivery of an acidic dissolution solution to the vascular site; (b) the second lumen is used for delivery of a buffer solution to the vascular site; and (c) the third lumen is used for removal of fluid from the vascular site. In many preferred embodiments, the first, second and third lumens are coaxial. In practicing the subject methods, the vascular site is flushed simultaneously with an acidic dissolution fluid and a buffer solution, where flushing is carried out in a manner such that only a surface of the vascular occlusion is contacted with the acidic dissolution fluid and the remainder of the vascular site is not contacted with fluid having a pH that is lower than about 4. Flushing is carried out in this manner for a period of time sufficient for fluid flow through the vascular site to be enhanced, e.g. increased or established. The subject catheter devices and methods find use in the treatment of a variety of different vascular diseases characterized by the presence of calcified vascular occlusions, including peripheral and coronary vascular diseases.
