Abstract
(EN)
A variety of stent designs that utilize interlocking rings are disclosed. Each ring is arranged to have a plurality of expandable loops. In some embodiments, some of the loops on each ring are arranged to interlock with a portion of an adjacent ring. The mating structure on the adjacent ring may take the form of loops or a dedicated interlocking structure. In other embodiments, separate interlocking members are used to interlock adjacent rings.

L'invention concerne différents dessins de stents utilisant des anneaux solidaires. Chaque anneau se compose d'une pluralité de boucles extensibles. Dans certains modes de réalisation, quelques unes des boucles de chaque anneau sont solidaires d'une partie d'un anneau adjacent. Sur ce dernier, la structure de connexion peut se présenter sous la forme de boucles ou d'une structure solidaire spécifique. Dans certains modes de réalisation, des éléments de liaison séparés servent à relier les anneaux adjacents.
