Title (EN) ENDOLUMINAL PROSTHESIS HAVING EXPANDABLE GRAFT SECTIONS
(FR) PROTHESE ENDOLUMINALE COMPRENANT DES SECTIONS EXTENSIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) An endoluminal prosthesis comprises a tubular member having a proximal opening and a distal opening providing a lumen through which body fluids may flow. The tubular member is constructed of a graft material. The tubular graft is formed of a first material such as a woven fiber or other suitable material for conducting fluid, and sections of a second material configured to extend or contract to permit the tubular graft to flex or straighten to conform to the anatomy in which it is deployed.
(FR) L'invention concerne une prothèse endoluminale qui comprend un élément tubulaire présentant une ouverture proximale et une ouverture distale formant une lumière à travers lequel les fluides corporels peuvent circuler. Cet élément tubulaire est constitué d'un matériau prothétique. Le substitut tubulaire est formé d'un premier matériau tel que fibres tissées ou d'un autre matériau permettant de conduire un fluide, et de sections formées d'un second matériau conçues pour s'étendre ou se contracter de manière à permettre au substitut tubulaire de fléchir et de se redresser afin de se conformer à l'anatomie dans laquelle il est implanté.
