Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention includes a system and method for reducing the approximation of wound edges of a stricture that affects a cross-sectional area of a lumen in a mammal. The system includes a body defining a passageway for fluid flow. The body is positionable in the lumen. The system also includes a separating device disposed relative to the body. The separating device can adjust the cross-sectional area of the lumen to reduce approximation of the plurality of wound edges of the stricture. Moreover, the separating device facilitates fluid flow through the passageway of the body.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de réduire le rapprochement des bords lésés d'une striction affectant une aire de section transversale d'une lumière chez un mammifère. Le système comprend un corps définissant un passage permettant l'écoulement d'un fluide. Le corps peut être positionné dans la lumière. Le système comprend également un dispositif de séparation disposé par rapport au corps. Le dispositif de séparation peut ajuster la surface de section transversale de la lumière afin de réduire le rapprochement de la pluralité des bords lésés de la striction. De plus, le dispositif de séparation facilite l'écoulement d'un fluide à travers le passage du corps.
