Title (EN) EXPANDABLE MEDICAL DEVICE FOR DELIVERY OF BENEFICIAL AGENT
(FR) DISPOSITIF MEDICAL EXTENSIBLE SERVANT A L'ADMINISTRATION D'UN AGENTBENEFIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An expandable medical device (10) having a plurality of elongated struts (18), the plurality of elongated struts being joined together to form a substantially cylindrical device which is expandable from a cylinder having a first diameter to a cylinder having a second diameter, and the plurality of struts each having a strut width in a circumferential direction. At least one of the plurality of struts includes at least one opening (24, 26) extending at least partially through a thickness of said strut. A beneficial agent may be loaded into the opening within the strut. The expandable medical device may further include a plurality of ductile hinges formed between the elongated struts, the ductile hinges (20) allowing the cylindrical device to be expanded or compressed from the first diameter to the second diameter by deformation of the ductile hinges.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif médical extensible, qui comprend une pluralité de jambes allongées assemblées pour former un dispositif sensiblement cylindrique, extensible d'un cylindre présentant un premier diamètre à un cylindre présentant un second diamètre, chaque jambe présentant une épaisseur de la jambe dans un sens circonférentiel. Au moins une jambe de la pluralité de jambes comprend au moins une ouverture traversant au moins partiellement son épaisseur. Le dispositif médical extensible peut également comprendre une pluralité de charnières ductiles formées entre les jambes allongées et permettant d'allonger ou de comprimer le dispositif cylindrique pour passer du premier diamètre au second diamètre, par déformation des charnières ductiles.
