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.
(FR) On décrit un appareil (40) doté d'un élément de sonde (41) de forme allongée présentant des extrémités distale et proximale (54a, 54b) qui est destiné à être utilisé avec une source de dépression (220) pour traiter une partie d'une paroi formant une cavité dans un corps comportant une ouverture corporelle naturelle qui permet d'accéder à la cavité. La sonde allongée est d'une longueur telle que, lorsque son extrémité distale se trouve à proximité d'une partie de la paroi, l'extrémité proximale se situe à l'extérieur du corps. L'extrémité distale de la sonde allongée comprend une surface externe (224) et comporte au moins un évidement (227) qui débouche sur la surface externe (224) et un passage interne (223) qui communique avec l'évidement. Lorsque la source de dépression est couplée à l'appareil, une dépression est créée dans l'évidement au moyen du passage pour attirer la partie de la paroi dans l'évidement. Une aiguille creuse (96) est disposée coulissante dans la sonde allongée et comporte une partie d'extrémité distale. L'aiguille peut être manipulée et commandée depuis l'extérieur du corps pour passer d'une position escamotée à une position sortie dans laquelle l'extrémité distale de l'aiguille se situe dans l'évidement. L'aiguille peut être sortie et se trouver dans la partie de la paroi attirée dans l'évidement pour introduire une matière dans la partie de la paroi et former un implant dans ladite partie de la paroi.
