Title (EN) ENDOPROSTHESIS HAVING FOOT EXTENSIONS
(FR) ENDOPROTHESES COMPRENANT DES PIEDS DE PROLONGEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) Endoprosthesis, such as a stent, including at least one annular element, which further includes a foot extension extending between at least one pair of circumf erentially-adjacent strut members defined in the annular member. The foot extension has first and second foot portions extending circumferentially from corresponding ends of the circumf erentially-adjacent strut members, and are contoured to provide at least two areas of flexure. A plurality of annular elements are longitudinally aligned and connected at connection locations with connectors, wherein at least one of the connectors is constructed of a bio-absorbable material. A method of inserting a radiopaque marker having a first head on a first end of an endoprosthesis having at least one eyelet comprising: a) disposing said marker element within the eyelet. b) forming a second head on a second end of the marker element, said second head projecting above a second surface of the endoprosthesis.
(FR) L'invention concerne une endoprothèse telle qu'un stent, qui comprend au moins un élément annulaire formé par un premier ensemble d'éléments d'entretoises interconnectés de manière à former des sommets adjacents aux extrémités opposées de l'élément annulaire. L'élément annulaire comprend en outre un pied de prolongement qui s'avance entre ou moins deux éléments d'entretoise circonférentiellement adjacents. Le pied de prolongement comprend une première et une seconde partie pied qui s'avancent circonférentiellement aux extrémités correspondantes des entretoises circonférentiellement adjacentes, et sont profilées de manière à offrir au moins deux zones de flexion. La première et la seconde partie pied sont reliées par une pointe du pied, et forment un sommet à orientation circonférentielle entre les deux éléments d'entretoise circonférentiellement adjacents. Cette endoprothèse comprend de préférence un ou plusieurs éléments annulaires additionnels, qui sont chacun formés par des éléments d'entretoise interconnectés. Les éléments annulaire sont sensiblement extensibles, entre une configuration d'introduction, et une configuration déployée. Les éléments annulaires sont alignés longitudinalement, et reliés à des connecteurs dans des points d'attache, au moins un de ces connecteurs étant constitué d'un matériau bioabsorbable.
