Title (EN) NERVE CUFF WITH POCKET FOR LEADLESS STIMULATOR
(FR) MANCHON POUR NERF MUNI D'UNE POCHE POUR STIMULATEUR SANS FIL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An extravascular nerve cuff that is configured to hold a leadless, integral, implantable microstimulator. The nerve cuff may include a cuff body having a pocket or pouch for removably receiving the implantable device within. The nerve cuff can be secured around the nerve such that the electrodes of the device are stably positioned relative to the nerve. Furthermore, the nerve cuff drives the majority of the current from the stimulation device into the nerve, while shielding surrounding tissues from unwanted stimulation.
(FR)L'invention concerne un manchon pour nerf extra-vasculaire qui est conçu pour porter un microstimulateur intégral implantable sans fil. Le manchon pour nerf peut comprendre un corps de manchon muni d'une poche ou d'un étui pour recevoir à l'intérieur le dispositif implantable avec possibilité de l'en retirer. Le manchon pour nerf peut être fixé autour du nerf de façon à ce que les électrodes du dispositif aient une position stable par rapport au nerf. En outre, le manchon pour nerf pilote la plus grande partie du courant depuis le dispositif de stimulation dans le nerf, tout en protégeant les tissus environnants d'une stimulation non désirée.
