Title (EN) STRUCTURALLY VARIABLE STENTS
(FR) STENTS À STRUCTURE VARIABLE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a tubular stent including a longitudinal cylindrical base structure having a first end portion, a second end portion, a mid-portion interposed between the first and second end portions. A plurality of linear strut members connect the mid-portion to the first and second end portions, where the first and second end portions has a first pattern and the mid portion has a second pattern different from the first pattern. The second pattern includes a plurality of articulations. Reservoirs are disposed on at least one of the first end portion, the second end portions, or the mid-portion, where the reservoirs include a pharmaceutical agent therein.
(FR) La présente invention vise un stent tubulaire comportant une structure de base cylindrique longitudinale ayant une première partie d’extrémité, une deuxième partie d’extrémité, une partie médiane interposée entre la première partie et la deuxième partie. Une pluralité d’organes de piliers linéaires raccorde la partie médiane à la première partie et à la deuxième partie, lesquelles ont une première structure tandis que la partie médiane a une deuxième structure différente de la première structure. La deuxième structure comporte une pluralité d’articulations. Des réservoirs sont disposés sur au moins une parmi la première partie d’extrémité, la deuxième partie d’extrémité, ou la partie médiane, les réservoirs renfermant un agent pharmaceutique.
