Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING FLOW OF SPERMS IN AN UTERINE TUBE
(FR) APPAREIL DE RÉGULATION DU FLUX DE SPERMATOZOÏDES DANS UNE TROMPE DE FALLOPE
Abstract
(EN) An apparatus for controlling a flow of sperms in a uterine tube formed by a uterine tube wall of a patient's uterine tube comprises an implantable constriction device for gently constricting (ie. without substantially hampering the blood circulation in the uterine tube wall) at least one portion of the uterine tube wall to influence the flow in the uterine tube, and a stimulation device for stimulating the wall portion of the uterine tube wall. A control device controls the stimulation device to stimulate the wall portion, as the constriction device constricts the wall portion, to cause contraction of the wall portion constricted by the constriction device to further influence the flow in the uterine tube. The apparatus can be used for restricting or stopping the flow in the uterine tube, or for actively moving the fluid in the uterine tube, with a low risk of injuring the uterine tube.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de régulation du flux de spermatozoïdes dans une trompe de Fallope formée par une paroi de trompe de Fallope d'une patiente, l'appareil comprenant un dispositif de constriction implantable destiné à réaliser une légère constriction (c.-à-d. sensiblement sans entraver la circulation sanguine dans la paroi de la trompe de Fallope) d'au moins une partie de la paroi de la trompe de Fallope pour agir sur le flux dans la trompe de Fallope, et un dispositif e stimulation destiné à stimuler la partie de la paroi de la trompe de Fallope. Un dispositif de commande commande le dispositif de stimulation pour qu'il stimule la partie de paroi lorsque le dispositif de constriction réalise une constriction de la partie de paroi, pour provoquer la constriction de la partie de paroi sur laquelle agit le dispositif de constriction afin d'agir plus amplement sur le flux dans la trompe de Fallope. L'appareil peut ainsi être utilisé pour restreindre ou stopper le flux dans la trompe de Fallope, ou pour assurer un déplacement actif du fluide dans la trompe de Fallope, avec un risque faible de lésion de la trompe de Fallope.
