Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR AN ADJUSTABLE IMPLANTABLE CONTINENCE DEVICE
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR UN DISPOSITIF DE CONTINENCE IMPLANTABLE REGLABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present subject matter includes an implantable device and method for restoring continence and controlling coaptivity of a body lumen. The device includes a fill port block (102) which has one or more self-sealing septums (112) . The fill-port block is connected to one or more elongate conduits (104) and ultimately to one or more expandable elements (106) for communicating fluid. The one or more expandable elements are implanted and adjusted from a remote location using the fill-port block. Methods for implantation, use, and construction are also provided.
(FR)La présente invention comprend un dispositif implantable et un procédé pour restaurer la continence et commander la coaptivité d’une lumière corporelle. Le dispositif comprend un bloc d’orifices de remplissage (102) qui comporte un ou plusieurs septums à fermeture hermétique (112). Ledit bloc est raccordé à une ou plusieurs conduites allongées (104) et en dernier à un ou plusieurs éléments expansibles (106) pour faire communiquer le fluide. Le ou les éléments expansibles sont implantés et ajustés à partir d’un emplacement éloigné en utilisant ledit bloc. Des procédés pour l’implantation, l’utilisation et la construction sont également prévus.
