Title (EN) EXPANDABLE MEDICAL DEVICE FOR DELIVERY OF BENEFICIAL AGENT
(FR) DISPOSITIF MEDICAL EXTENSIBLE SERVANT A L'ADMINISTRATION D'UN AGENT BENEFIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An expandable medical device having a plurality of elongated struts (18), the plurality of elongated struts being joined together to form a substantially cylindrical device which is expandable from a cylinder having a first diameter to a cylinder having a second diameter, and the plurality of struts each having a strut width in a circumferential direction. At least one of the plurality of struts includes at least one opening (24) extending at least partially through a thickness of said strut. A beneficial agent may be loaded into the opening within the strut. The expandable medical device may further include a plurality of ductile hinges (20) formed between the elongated struts, the ductile hinges allowing the cylindrical device to be expanded or compressed from the first diameter to the second diameter by deformation of the ductile hinges.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif médical extensible comportant un groupe de plusieurs entretoises reliées ensemble pour former un dispositif sensiblement cylindrique qui s'étend d'un cylindre d'un premier diamètre à un autre cylindre d'un second diamètre, ce groupe d'entretoises s'étendant dans le sens de la largeur dans une direction périphérique. Au moins l'une des ces entretoises comprend au moins une ouverture qui se prolonge au moins en partie dans l'épaisseur de ladite entretoise. Un agent bénéfique peut être chargé dans l'ouverture de l'entretoise. Le dispositif médical extensible peut également comprendre un groupe de plusieurs charnières ductiles formées entre les entretoises oblongues. Ces charnières ductiles permettent au dispositif cylindrique de se déployer ou de se replier, en passant d'un premier diamètre à un second diamètre sous l'effet de la déformation des charnières ductiles.
