Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments of the invention are generally directed to a mechanical support (102) of a pelvic treatment apparatus (100) that is configured for implantation in the pelvic region of a patient for the purpose of treating a pelvic condition of the patient, such as urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, sexual dysfunction, or other pelvic related condition. In some embodiments, the implantable mechanical support comprises a section of mesh (104) having a longitudinal axis (106) and at least one radiopaque mark (114) covering a subsection of the section of mesh. Additional embodiments are directed to methods of attaching an electrode lead (122) or an electrical lead (180) to the mechanical support subsequent to the implantation of the mechanical support using the radiopaque mark.
(FR)Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent généralement un support mécanique (102) d'un appareil de traitement pelvien (100) qui est configuré pour implantation dans la région pelvienne d'un patient dans le but de traiter une affection pelvienne du patient, telle que l'incontinence urinaire, l'incontinence fécale, un dysfonctionnement sexuel, ou une autre affection associée au pelvis. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le support mécanique implantable comprend une section de treillis (104) ayant un axe longitudinal (106) et au moins une marque radio-opaque (114) couvrant une sous-section de la section de treillis. Des modes de réalisation additionnels concernent des procédés de fixation d'un conducteur d'électrode (122) ou un conducteur électrique (180) au support mécanique consécutivement à l'implantation du support mécanique en utilisant la marque radio-opaque.
