Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR USE IN ENDOSCOPIC ORGAN PROCEDURES
(FR) METHODE ET DISPOSITIF UTILISES DANS DES INTERVENTIONS ENDOSCOPIQUES D'ORGANES
Abstract
(EN)
Methods and devices for use in tissue approximation and fixation are described herein. The present invention provides, in part, methods and devices for acquiring tissue folds in a circumferential configuration within a hollow body organ, e.g., a stomach, positioning the tissue folds for affixing within a fixation zone of the stomach, preferably to create a pouch or partition below the esophagus, and fastening the tissue folds such that a tissue ring, or stomas, forms excluding the pouch from the greater stomach cavity. The present invention further provides for a liner or bypass conduit which is affixed at a proximal end either to the tissue ring or through some other fastening mechanism. The distal end of the conduit is left either unanchored or anchored within the intestinal tract. This bypass conduit also includes a fluid bypass conduit which allows the stomach and a portion of the intestinal tract to communicate.

L'invention concerne des méthodes et des dispositifs utilisés dans l'approche et la fixation de tissus. La présente invention concerne, en partie, des méthodes et des dispositifs d'acquisition de bourrelets de tissu dans une configuration circonférentielle avec un organe du corps creux, par exemple l'estomac, de positionnement des bourrelets de tissu pour les fixer dans une zone de fixation de l'estomac, de préférence pour créer une poche ou une division en dessous de l'oesophage, et de serrage des bourrelets de tissu jusqu'à la formation d'un anneau de tissu, ou stomie, excluant la poche de la cavité stomacale étendue. La présente invention concerne également un tube ou conduit de dérivation fixé à une extrémité proximale soit à l'anneau de tissu, soit à travers un autre mécanisme de serrage. L'extrémité distale du conduit est non ancré ou ancré dans le tractus intestinal. Ledit conduit de dérivation comprend également un conduit de dérivation fluidique permettant à l'estomac et à une partie du tractus intestinal de communiquer.
