Abstract: front page image
(EN)A dynamically controlled gastric occlusion device (16) monitors at least one physiological parameter that varies as a function of food intake and controls the degree of gastric constriction of an occluding device, such as a gastric band (12), based on the monitored physiological parameter. In another embodiment, the dynamically controlled gastric occlusion device controls the degree of gastric constriction based on time. The occluding device is dynamically opened or closed to either permit or prevent the passage of food through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. By dynamically controlling the degree of gastric constriction, the device limits the ingestion of food to reduce caloric intake so that the patient loses weight while permitting the ingestion of water and the minimum amount of caloric energy necessary to prevent malnourishment.
(FR)Un dispositif d'occlusion gastrique à commande dynamique (16) contrôle au moins un paramètre physiologique qui varie en fonction de l'ingestion de nourriture et commande le degré de constriction gastrique d'un dispositif d'occlusion, tel qu'une bande gastrique (12), selon le paramètre physiologique contrôlé. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, le dispositif d'occlusion gastrique commandé dynamiquement commande le degré de constriction gastrique en fonction de l'heure. Ce dispositif d'occlusion est ouvert ou fermé dynamiquement afin de permettre ou d'empêcher le passage de nourriture dans le tractus gastro-intestinal. Par la commande dynamique du degré de constriction gastrique, le dispositif limite l'ingestion de nourriture afin de réduire l'apport calorique, de sorte que le patient perde du poids alors que l'ingestion d'eau et de la ration calorique minimum nécessaire pour empêcher la malnutrition est permise.
