Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR NEURAL STIMULATION VIA LYMPHATIC VESSEL
(FR) SYSTÈME DESTINÉ À UNE STIMULATION NEURALE PAR L'INTERMÉDIAIRE D'UN VAISSEAU LYMPHATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An implantable neural stimulation system includes an implantable medical device having a neural stimulation circuit and at least one implantable lead configured to allow one or more stimulation electrodes to be placed in one or more lymphatic vessels of a patient, such as the patient's thoracic duct and/or vessels branching from the thoracic duct. Neural stimulation pulses are delivered from the implantable medical device to one or more target regions adjacent to the thoracic duct or the vessels branching from the thoracic duct through the one or more stimulation electrodes.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de stimulation neurale implantable constitué d'un dispositif médical implantable qui comporte un circuit de stimulation neurale et au moins un fil-guide implantable configuré pour permettre de placer une ou plusieurs électrodes de stimulation dans un ou plusieurs vaisseaux lymphatiques, tels qu'un conduit thoracique et/ou des vaisseaux se ramifiant depuis le conduit thoracique du patient. Des impulsions de stimulation neurale sont émises du dispositif médical implantable vers une ou plusieurs régions cibles adjacentes au conduit thoracique ou aux vaisseaux se ramifiant depuis le conduit thoracique par l'intermédiaire de ladite ou desdites électrodes de stimulation.
