Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR TREATING A DISEASE PROCESS IN A LUMINAL STRUCTURE
(FR) APPAREIL ET METHODE DE TRAITEMENT D'UN PROCESSUS PATHOLOGIQUE DANS UN PASSAGE CORPOREL
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus, and method for treating a disease process in a luminal structure comprises a balloon catheter (10) having a central balloon (18), and two edge balloons (20, 22). The central balloon may be separately inflated temporally, and with different radioactive fluid than the edge balloons. Other arrangements include a wire, a stent (60), concentric balloons which provide spatial, and temporal control enabling differential radioactivity at different spatial locations along the structure.

Appareil et méthode de traitement d'un processus pathologique dans un passage corporel. Ledit appareil comporte un cathéter (10) à ballonnet possédant un ballonnet central (18) et deux ballonnets terminaux (20, 22). Le ballonnet central peut temporairement être gonflé de manière séparée, avec un fluide radioactif différent de celui des ballonnets terminaux. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, ledit appareil comporte un fil métallique ou un stent (60) ou des ballonnets concentriques, qui fournissent une régulation spatiale et temporelle permettant une radioactivité différentielle en différents endroits le long du passage corporel.
