(FR) DISPOSITIF SUPPORT EXPANSIBLE ET SON PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An expandable support device and methods of using the same are disclosed herein. The expandable support device can expand radially when compressed longitudinally. The expandable support device can be deployed in a bone, such as a vertebra, for example to repair a compression fraction. The expandable support device can be deployed into or in place of all or part of an intervertebral disc. The expandable support device can be deployed in a vessel, in an aneurysm, across a valve, or combinations thereof. The expandable support device can be deployed permanently and/or used as a removable tool to expand or clear a lumen and/or repair valve leaflets.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un dispositif support expansible et sur son procédé d'utilisation. Un tel dispositif, qui se dilate radialement lorsqu'il est comprimé longitudinalement, peut être posé dans un os, tel qu'une vertèbre, par exemple pour réparer une fracture par tassement; peut être posé dans ou à la place d'un disque intervertébral ou l'une de ses parties; ou peut être posé dans un vaisseau et/ou dans un anévrisme et/ou en travers d'une valvule; et peut se poser de manière permanente et/ou servir d'outil amovible pour élargir ou désobstruer une lumière et/ou réparer une valvule cardiaque.
