Medical - Medical: Instruments / High-density mapping-catheter
English term or phrase: spine
The High-Density Mapping Catheter is designed to facilitate electrophysiological mapping of the heart. It is deployed in a heart chamber through an 8F guiding sheath, such as the Guiding Sheath. This deflectable catheter consists of multiple 3F ""spines"" on its distal tip, each spine having multiple platinum electrodes that are used for stimulation and recording. Pushing forward on the catheter thumbknob deflects the tip; pulling back on the thumbknob straightens the tip. This device includes an irrigation lumen for connetion to a source of continuous drip anticoagulant fluid.....

I am not really very sure, but I think that 'Sonden' might be an appropriate translation. The fact that it ""spines"" is in double quotes might mean that it is not supposed to be a techincal term in this context. In this case "Nadeln", "Stacheln" or "Dornen" might be appropriate.

Ich verstehe das so, dass sich das Ende eine Art "Vorwölbungen" befinden, die mit diesen Elektroden versehen sind. "Dornen" oder "Stacheln", also etwas Spitzes, kann ich mir nicht vorstellen. Das würde zu Verletzungen der Gefäßwand führen.
