Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR STENT DEPLOYMENT WITH DELIVERY OF BIOACTIVE AGENTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR DEPLOYER UN EXTENSEUR AVEC LIBERATION AMELIOREE D'AGENTS BIOACTIFS
Abstract
(EN)
A stent for use in animals including humans is disclosed which includes unprotected and protected regions, each protected regions including a bioactive or biopenetrating agent containing therein where the protected regions are protected by the unprotected regions when the stent is in its undeployed state which has a smaller cross-sectional dimension than the stent in its deployed state. And when the stent is in its deployed state the bioactive or biopenetrating agent(s) are brought into direct and intimate contact with a tissue or interior of a blood vessel of an animal including a human.
(FR)
Cette invention se rapporte à un extenseur qui est conçu pour être utilisé chez des animaux, y compris l'homme, et qui comprend des zones non protégées et des zones protégées, chaque zone protégée contenant un agent bioactif ou biopénétrant. Les zones protégées sont protégées par les zones non protégées, lorsque l'extenseur se trouve dans sa position non déployée, l'extenseur dans cette position ayant une dimension en section transversale plus petite que lorsqu'il se trouve dans sa position déployée. Lorsque l'extenseur se trouve dans sa position déployée, le ou les agents bioactifs ou biopénétrants sont mis en conctact direct et intime avec un tissu ou avec l'intérieur d'un vaisseau sanguin du sujet animal ou humain.
