Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0053120A1] The present invention provides a medical device retrieval system comprising a working element carried by a flexible, elongate shaft, the working element having a proximal profile and the shaft extending proximally from the working element and a retrieval cover slidably carried along the shaft of the medical device, the cover having a deployed configuration and being capable of being compressed into a compressed configuration for deployment, yet resiliently substantially return to the deployed configuration; the cover in its deployed configuration having a radially reduced proximal portion, a distally open distal end defining a distal opening having a maximum dimension at least as great as the maximum dimension of the proximal profile of the working element of the medical device, and an elongate internal recess defined between the proximal portion and the distal end.
