Title (EN) APPARATUS, SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ACHIEVING INTRAVASCULAR, THERMALLY-INDUCED RENAL NEUROMODULATION
(FR) APPAREILS, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE RÉALISATION D'UNE NEUROMODULATION RÉNALE INTRAVASCULAIRE INDUITE THERMIQUEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus, systems, and methods for achieving thermally-induced renal neuromodulation by intravascular access are disclosed herein. One aspect of the present application, for example, is directed to apparatuses, systems, and methods that incorporate a treatment device comprising an elongated shaft. The elongated shaft is sized and configured to deliver a thermal element to a renal artery via an intravascular path. Thermally-induced renal neuromodulation may be achieved via direct and/or via indirect application of thermal energy to heat or cool neural fibers that contribute to renal function, or of vascular structures that feed or perfuse the neural fibers.
(FR) L'invention concerne des appareils, des systèmes et des procédés permettant d'obtenir une neuromodulation rénale induite thermiquement par accès intravasculaire. Un aspect de la présente demande concerne par exemple des appareils, des systèmes et des procédés qui comprennent un dispositif de traitement qui comprend une tige allongée. La tige allongée est dimensionnée et configurée de manière à pouvoir placer un élément thermique dans une artère rénale par un parcours intravasculaire. La neuromodulation rénale induite thermiquement peut être obtenue par application directe et/ou application indirecte d'énergie thermique pour chauffer ou refroidir les fibres neurales qui contribuent à la fonction rénale, ou de structures vasculaires qui alimentent ou perfusent les fibres neurales.
