Title (EN) DEVICE FOR INSERTION INTO A BODY CAVITY
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'INTRODUCTION DANS UNE CAVITE CORPORELLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to an intravaginal catamenial device having a distensible member for sealingly engaging walls of a vagina. Inflating the distensible member provides immediate expansion after insertion into the vagina, thereby minimizing the potential for any by-pass leakage of bodily fluids. The device of the present invention employs a valve mechanism capable of two-way fluid communication that enables both inflation and deflation of the device. The distensible member may be of any shape that is useful for blocking and/or collecting bodily fluids.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif intravaginal cataménial comportant un élément gonflable destiné à coopérer de manière étanche les parois du vagin. Le gonflement de cet élément permet d'obtenir une expansion immédiate après introduction dans le vagin, ce qui permet de minimiser la possibilité d'une fuite secondaire de fluides corporels. Le dispositif de l'invention utilise un mécanisme de valve capable d'établir une communication fluidique bidirectionnelle qui permet de gonfler et de dégonfler ledit dispositif. L'élément gonflable peut présenter toute forme utile pour bloquer et/ou collecter des fluides corporels.
