Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TREATING OBESITY AND CONTROLLING WEIGHT GAIN USING SELF-EXPANDING INTRAGASTRIC DEVICES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR TRAITER L'OBÉSITÉ ET CONTRÔLER LE GAIN DE POIDS À L'AIDE DE DISPOSITIFS INTRAGASTRIQUES À AUTO-DILATATION
Abstract:
(EN) The invention generally relates to a method and apparatus to treat obesity and controlling weight gain. In an exemplary embodiment, the invention relates to a covered cage device that is implanted within a human's stomach to occupy volume and cause a reduced desire for eating. The covered cage device is made from a wire-mesh, such a Nitinol, and can be adjustable and collapsible. In another embodiment, the covered cage device has edges that provide stimulation to the stomach to induce a feeling of fullness.
(FR) L'invention concerne d'une manière générale un procédé et un appareil pour traiter l'obésité et contrôler le gain de poids. Dans un mode de réalisation donné à titre d'exemple, l'invention porte sur un dispositif à cage recouverte, qui est implanté à l'intérieur de l'estomac d'un être humain, pour occuper un volume et provoquer un désir réduit de se nourrir. Le dispositif à cage recouverte est réalisé à partir d'un treillis métallique, tel qu'un Nitinol, et peut être réglé et pliable. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, le dispositif à cage recouverte a des bords qui produisent une stimulation à l'estomac afin d'induire un sentiment de satiété.
