Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR TREATMENT OF MORBID OBESITY
(FR) APPAREIL ET METHODES PERMETTANT DE TRAITER L'OBESITE MORBIDE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and methods are described for treatment of morbid obesity using minimally invasive techniques. The apparatus includes a system of components that may be used separately or in combination for effectively reducing stomach volume, bypassing a portion of the stomach and/or small intestines, reducing nutrient absorption in the stomach and/or small intestines and/or depositing minimally or undigested food farther than normal into the intestines, thereby stimulating intestinal responses. The components described include an artificial stoma device, a gastric sleeve device, an intestinal sleeve device, a combined gastrointestinal sleeve device and permanent and detachable attachment systems. Also described are devices for delivering and deploying the components of the system.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et des méthodes qui permettent de traiter l'obésité morbide au moyen de techniques avec effraction minimale. Cet appareil comprend un système de composants qui peuvent être utilisés séparément ou en combinaison afin de réduire efficacement le volume de l'estomac, de court-circuiter une partie de l'estomac et/ou de l'intestin grêle, de réduire l'absorption de nutriments dans l'estomac et/ou dans l'intestin grêle et/ou de déposer des aliments faiblement ou non digérés plus loin que la normale dans les intestins, stimulant ainsi les réponses intestinales. Les composants décrits comprennent une stomie artificielle, un manchon gastrique, un manchon intestinal, un manchon gastro-intestinal combiné et des systèmes de fixation permanents et détachables. L'invention concerne également des dispositifs qui permettent de délivrer et de déployer les composants du système.
