Title
(EN) SEGMENTED ENDOPROSTHESIS
(FR) ENDOPROTHESE SEGMENTEE
Abstract
(EN)
Generally, the present application includes a segmented endoprosthesis for delivery into a lumen of a body. The endoprostheses can be configured to include a plurality of longitudinally-adjacent annular elements (110a, 110b) joined together with a shock-absorbing inter-connector (150) such that adjacent annular elements can move independently from each other. Also, the segmented endoprosthesis can be comprised of a plurality of sub-endoprostheses that are connected or in contact with each other during delivery, and separate from each other after being deployed. The segmented endoprosthesis can provide improved deliverability, strength, flexibility, and/or functionality during and after deployment. The use of a segmented endoprosthesis can combine the characteristics of multiple small endoprostheses into a standard- or regular-sized endoprosthesis.
(FR)
La présente invention porte, de manière générale, sur une endoprothèse segmentée destinée à être administrée dans un lumen d'un corps. L'endoprothèse peut être configurée de façon à comprendre une pluralité d'éléments annulaires longitudinalement adjacents, réunis par un raccord absorbant les chocs, de sorte qu'ils ne puissent se déplacer, indépendamment, les uns par rapport aux autres. L'endoprothèse segmentée peut également comprendre une pluralité de sous-endoprothèses qui sont raccordées ou en contact les unes avec les autres lors de leur administration et qui se séparent les unes des autres après leur déploiement. Il est possible de conférer à l'endoprothèse segmentée une meilleure capacité d'administration, une plus grande résistance et flexibilité et/ou une meilleure fonctionnalité pendant et après son déploiement. L'utilisation de l'endoprothèse segmentée peut combiner les caractéristiques de plusieurs petites endoprothèses en une endoprothèse aux dimensions standards ou régulières.
