Title: SURGICAL RING WITH ASSEMBLED CONSTRUCTION
Abstract:
The invention relates to a surgical ring (1) suitable for implantation in a human or animal body such as to surround a biological organ forming a bag in order to modify the flow area thereof. The ring comprises a hose (8) having an inner surface (8A) intended for engaging with the biological organ in order to modify the section thereof and an outer surface (8B) opposite the former, and a belt (10) mounted on and along the outer surface and attached to the latter. The hose and the belt are respectively provided with a first and second matching assembly means (11, 12) that interact mechanically in order to substantially prevent any sliding of the belt along the outer surface.
