Title
(DE) MÄNNLICHES KONTRAZEPTIONSGERÄT
(EN) AN APPARATUS FOR MALE CONTRACEPTION
(FR) APPAREIL DE CONTRACEPTION MASCULINE
Abstract
(EN) An apparatus for obtaining controlled male contraception comprises an implantable constriction device for gently constricting (i.e. without substantially hampering the blood circulation in the tissue wall) at least one portion of vas deference to influence the flow in vas deference, and a stimulation device for stimulating the wall portion of the tissue wall. A control device controls the stimulation device to stimulate the wall portion,and/or the constriction device to constrict the wall portion, to cause restriction of the wall portion to influence the flow in vas deference. The apparatus can be used for restricting or stopping the flow in vas deference or for actively assisting with transportation of sperms, with a low risk of injuring the vas deference.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil permettant une contraception masculine contrôlée, comprenant un dispositif de constriction implantable qui réalise une légère constriction (c.-à-d. sensiblement sans entraver la circulation sanguine dans la paroi tissulaire) d'au moins une partie du canal déférent pour agir sur le flux dans le canal déférent, et un dispositif de stimulation destiné à stimuler une partie de la paroi tissulaire. Un dispositif de commande commande le dispositif de stimulation pour qu'il stimule la partie de paroi, et/ou le dispositif de constriction pour qu'il réalise la constriction de la partie de paroi, pour provoquer une restriction de la partie de paroi et ainsi influencer le flux dans le canal déférent. L'appareil peut être utilisé pour restreindre ou stopper le flux dans le canal déférent ou assister de façon active le transport des spermatozoïdes, avec une risque faible de lésion du canal déférent.
