Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR THE IN-SITU FORMATION OF A STRUCTURAL PROSTHESIS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE FORMATION IN SITU D'UNE PROTHESE STRUCTURELLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for in-situ formation of a structural prosthesis (30) includes a tubular member (32) having a proximal end (34) and an opposing distal end (36). A balloon (42) having a compartment (50) is disposed on the tubular member (32) such that a curable biomaterial can be selectively delivered to the compartment (50) of the balloon (42) through the tubular member (32). A line (60) is disposed on or in the wall of the balloon (42) to facilitate at least partial severing of the wall of the balloon (42) after the biomaterial has at least partially cured therein such that the balloon (42) can be selectively removed from around the at least partially cured biomaterial, thereby forming a structural prosthesis (30).
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil de formation in situ d'une prothèse structurelle (30) comportant: un élément tubulaire (32) présentant une extrémité proximale (34) et une extrémité distale (36) opposée, et un ballonnet (42), délimitant un compartiment (50); qu'on place dans l'élément tubulaire (32) de manière à pouvoir introduire dans le compartiment (50) du ballonnet (42) via l'élément tubulaire (32) un matériau biologique durcissable. Une ligne (60) formée sur ou dans la paroi du ballonnet (42) facilite la déchirure au moins partielle de ladite paroi lorsque le matériau biologique a commencé à durcir, ce qui permet d'extraire sélectivement le ballonnet entourant ledit matériau qui, une fois durci, formera la prothèse structurelle (30).
