Title (EN) CONTROLLED FRACTURE CONNECTIONS FOR STENTS
(FR) RACCORDS A RUPTURE CONTROLEE POUR ENDOPROTHESES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention provides for intra-luminal stents, especially stent having controlled fracture connection, as well as, methods of making and using the same. In one embodiment, a stent for implantation into a vessel has a plurality of annular segments (110) collectively forming tubular shape, characterized by at least first and second adjacent annular segments each defined by a plurality of struts and at least one joint (112) interconnecting respective struts of the first and second segments on a non-permanent basis.
(FR)L'invention concerne des endoprothèses intraluminales, en particulier une endoprothèse présentant un raccord à rupture contrôlée, ainsi que des procédés de fabrication et d'utilisation de cette endoprothèse. Une des formes de réalisation, comprend une endoprothèse destinée à être implantée dans un vaisseau, comprenant une pluralité de segments annulaires, qui forment ensemble une structure tubulaire, caractérisée par au moins un premier et un second segment annulaire adjacents, formés chacun d'une pluralité d'entretoises, et par au moins un raccord reliant les entretoises respectives du premier et du second segment d'une manière non permanente.
