Title (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR TREATING GERD
(FR) APPAREIL DESTINÉ À TRAITER UN REFLUX GASTRO-OESOPHAGIEN PATHOLOGIQUE (GERD)
Abstract:
(EN) An implantable device for the treatment of acid reflux disease has a body including an outer surface adapted to rest against a patient's fundus wall. The device, when implanted in a patient, fills a volume in the patient's abdomen in the cardia area and above the cardia of the patient, when standing. The body prevents the cardia from moving through the diaphragm opening into the thorax, thereby preventing reflux by keeping the abdominal pressure supporting the cardia sphincter muscle. The device may be affixed to stomach tissue. The device may also be invaginated or otherwise indirectly secured in position.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif implantable destiné à traiter un reflux acide pathologique. Ce dispositif comprend un corps comportant une surface extérieure conçue pour s'appuyer contre une paroi du fond de l'estomac d'un patient. Ce dispositif, une fois implanté dans le patient, remplit un volume de l'abdomen du patient, dans la zone du cardia, et au-dessus du cardia du patient, lorsque le patient est debout. Le corps du dispositif empêche le cardia de glisser dans l'ouverture du diaphragme jusqu'au thorax. Ainsi, on évite les reflux par maintien de la pression abdominale, ladite pression permettant de soutenir le muscle du sphincter du cardia. Le dispositif peut être fixé sur le tissu gastrique. Ce dispositif peut également être invaginé ou être indirectement fixé en place.
