Abstract

See full text

An inflatable medical device for the delivery of medications to an organ in the body including a catheter having a plurality of lumens disposed therein. The distal end of the catheter is adapted to be disposed within a bodily organ. A hollow, inflatable, medication-deliverable balloon is disposed on the distal end of the catheter and the interior of the balloon is in fluid flow relationship with one of the lumens to enable the balloon to be inflated. An array of conduits is disposed within the walls of the balloon for the delivery of medications to predetermined locations within said bodily organ. Another lumen in the catheter shaft is provided to deliver medications to the conduits in the wall of the balloon and an egress for the medications so that they may be dispensed at the site being treated.
