Title
(EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR TRAVERSING AN ANATOMIC WALL
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET DISPOSITIFS PERMETTANT DE TRAVERSER UNE PAROI ANATOMIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed herein are devices for traversing an anatomic wall. In one aspect, a system includes a transluminal device (20) configured for insertion through a natural orifice and a port (22) for permitting access through an anatomic wall. The port is adapted to mate with an anatomic wall and to permit passage of biomaterials, thereby reducing possible contamination and infection. The port can be integrated with a transluminal device. The transluminal device includes a guide tube or elongated body (38). The port includes two mating elements (30a, 30 b). In one embodiment, the mating elements can incorporate a magnet to hold the mating elements in a mated configuration and/or to move the mating elements into the mating configuration.

L'invention concerne divers systèmes et procédés permettant de traverser une paroi anatomique. On décrit un système qui peut comporter un accès s'adaptant à une paroi anatomique et présentant une lumière qui assure le passage d'un tube de guidage de dispositif transluminal. Ledit accès permet d'empêcher le passage de substances biologiques à travers la paroi anatomique. On décrit aussi des procédés d'implantation de cet accès et/ou d'insertion du dispositif transluminal dans une cavité corporelle.
