Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a urethral prosthesis (10) including a substrate (20), an inflatable pillow (30) attached to the substrate (20), a pressurized reservoir (110) in fluid communication with the pillow and a restrictor (70). Upon compression of the inflatable pillow (30), inflating agent is transferred from the inflatable pillow (30) to the pressurized reservoir (110). Upon terminating compression, inflating agent returns to the inflatable pillow (30). The urethral prosthesis (10) may be implanted such that the inflatable pillow (30) prevents unintentional voiding of a patient's bladder.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une prothèse urétrale (10) comprenant un substrat (20), un coussinet gonflable (30) fixé à ce substrat (20), un réservoir sous pression (110) en communication fluidique avec le coussinet, et un régulateur d'écoulement (70). Lors d'une compression du coussinet gonflable (30), un agent de gonflement est transféré du coussinet gonflable (30) au réservoir sous pression (110). Après la compression, l'agent de gonflement retourne dans le coussinet gonflable (30). Cette prothèse urétrale (10) peut être implantée de sorte que le coussinet gonflable (30) empêche une évacuation de liquide accidentelle à partir de la vessie d'un patient.
