Title (EN) TRANSCRANIAL ULTRASOUND THROMBOLYSIS SYSTEM AND METHOD OF TREATING A STROKE
(FR) DISPOSITIF A ULTRASONS DE THROMBOLYSE TRANSCRANIENNE ET PROCEDE DE TRAITEMENT D'UNE ATTAQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of transcranial ultrasound thrombolysis comprises the steps of providing a predetermined level of ultrasonic energy substantially throughout a primary treatment zone encompassing the M1 branch and M2 branches of the middle cerebral artery of an individual. A thrombolytic agent is also administered to the individual. A transcranial ultrasound thrombolysis system (10) is also provided that includes a transducer (20). The transducer is adapted to provide a predetermined level of ultrasonic energy substantially throughout a primary treatment zone encompassing at least a substantial portion of the M1 branch and the M2 branches of the middle cerebral artery in one hemisphere of a brain.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de thrombolyse à ultrasons transcrânienne qui consiste à produire un niveau prédéterminé d'énergie ultrasonore sensiblement à travers toute une zone de traitement primaire englobant la branche M1 et les branches M2 de l'artère cérébrale moyenne d'un patient. Un agent thrombolytique est également administré au patient. L'invention concerne en outre un dispositif à ultrasons de thrombolyse transcrânienne qui comporte un transducteur, lequel est conçu pour produire un niveau prédéterminé d'énergie ultrasonore sensiblement à travers toute une zone de traitement comprenant au moins une partie importante de la branche M1 et des branches M2 de l'artère cérébrale moyenne dans un hémisphère du cerveau.
