Title (EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR ANCHORING TO SOFT TISSUE
(FR) METHODES ET DISPOSITIFS D'ANCRAGE DANS DES TISSUS MOUS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed are methods and devices for placing anchors into soft tissue such as the walls of the stomach. The anchoring device includes a tissue interface that is introduced in a collapsed configuration and which expands radially outward. The tissue interface includes a framework capable of distributing a load applied to the linkage element across the surface area of the tissue interface.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des méthodes et dispositifs de mise en place d'ancrages dans des tissus mous, tels que les parois de l'estomac. Lesdits dispositifs comportent une interface de tissu, introduite à l'état replié et se dilatant radialement vers l'extérieur, et dont la structure permet de répartir une charge appliquée à l'élément de liaison sur la totalité de la surface de l'interface.
