Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device for use in injecting a gel into an annular channel formed at a predetermined depth in the cornea through an incision made through the surface of the cornea of an eye for the purpose of altering the radius of curvature of the cornea, comprising: a tubular member capable of insertion into an annular channel, said member having a curved end to facilitate the insertion through the incision in the cornea and into the channel; means, coupled to said tubular member, for storing a gel; and means, associated with said storage means, for transporting the gel from said storage means through said tubular member into the channel.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif servant à injecter un gel dans un canal annulaire formé à un profondeur déterminée dans la cornée, au moyen d'une incision pratiquée à travers la surface de la cornée dans le but de modifier le rayon de courbure de la cornée. Ce dispositif comprend un élément tubulaire pouvant être inséré dans un canal annulaire, ledit élément présentant une extrémité incurvée afin de faciliter son introduction à travers l'incision pratiquée dans la cornée et à l'intérieur du canal; un élément, accouplé audit élément tubulaire, permettant de stocker le gel; et un élément, associé audit élément de stockage, servant à transporter le gel, de l'élément de stockage à l'intérieur du canal, à travers l'élément tubulaire.
