Title (EN) TUMOR TREATMENT
(FR) TRAITEMENT DE TUMEURS
Abstract:
(EN) A completely implantable apparatus (26) is provided for treatment of tissue surrounding a cavity (24) left by surgical removal of a brain tumor (18). The apparatus (26) includes an inflatable balloon (28) constructed for placement in the cavity (24). A subcutaneously implantable treatment fluid receptacle (30) is provided for receiving a transdermal injection of a treatment fluid. A catheter (32) connects the receptacle (30) to the inflatable balloon (28). Various embodiments provide for simultaneous application of heat therapy and/or radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy to the remaining tissue surrounding the cavity (24) from which the tumor was removed.
(FR) Appareil (26) complètement implantable utilisé dans le traitement de tissus entourant une cavité (24) formée à la suite de l'ablation chirurgicale d'une tumeur (18) au cerveau. L'appareil (26) comprend un ballonnet gonflable (28) conçu pour se placer à l'intérieur de la cavité (24). Un récipient (30) de liquide de traitement implantable par voie sous cutanée reçoit une injection transdermique d'un liquide de traitement. Un cathéter (32) relie le récipient (30) au ballonnet gonflable (28). Divers modes de réalisation prévoient l'application simultanée d'une thérapie thermique et/ou d'une thérapie par rayonnement et/ou d'une chimiothérapie au tissus restants entourant la cavité (24) d'où on a retiré la tumeur.
