Abstract: front page image
(EN)

An apparatus (40) comprising an elongate
probe member (41) having proximal and distal extremities
(54a, 54b) for use with a suction source (220) to treat a
portion of a wall forming a cavity in a body having a natural
body opening for accessing the cavity. The elongate probe
member has a length so that when the distal extremity is in
the vicinity of the portion of the wall the proximal extremity
is outside of the body. The distal extremity of the elongate
probe member has an outer surface (224) and is provided
with at least one recess (227) opening onto the outer surface
and an internal passageway (223) communicating with the
recess. When the suction source is coupled to the apparatus
a suction is created in the recess by means of the passageway
to draw the portion of the wall into the recess. A hollow
needle (96) is slidably disposed in the elongate probe member
and has a distal end portion. The needle is actuatable from
outside the body for movement from a retracted position to
an extended position in which the distal end portion of the
needle extends into the recess. The needle can be extended
into the portion of the wall drawn into the recess so as to
introduce a material into the portion of the wall and form an
implant in the portion of the wall.
