Title (EN) METHOD FOR PERFORMING ENDOLUMINAL FUNDOPLICATION AND APPARATUS FOR USE IN THE METHOD
(FR) TECHNIQUE POUR EFFECTUER UNE FUNDOPLICATURE ENDOLUMINALE ET APPAREIL UTILISE SELON CETTE TECHNIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and device for performing endoluminal fundoplication are described. A device is inserted in the patient's stomach through the esophagus, including an unit adapted to grasp and pull a portion of the gastroesophageal junction into the stomach, and an unit adapted to move a portion of the fungus towards the esophagus. The device also can place fasteners to hold the gastric wall and the esophageal wall secured together, thus forming a valve between esophagus and stomach. An adhesive compound can be used to stabilize the juncture of the two walls.
(FR) L'invention concerne une technique et un dispositif pour effectuer une fundoplicature endoluminale. Un dispositif est introduit dans l'estomac du patient par l'oesophage. Ce dispositif comprend une unité conçue pour attraper et tirer une partie de la jonction gastro-oesophagienne à l'intérieur de l'estomac, ainsi qu'une unité conçue pour déplacer une partie du fond en direction de l'oesophage. Ce dispositif peut en outre être utilisé pour poser des attaches servant à joindre la paroi gastrique et la paroi oesophagienne de sorte à former une valve entre l'oesophage et l'estomac. Un composé adhésif peut être utilisé pour stabiliser la jointure des deux parois.
