Title
(EN) GASTRIC BAND DEVICE AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ANNEAU GASTRIQUE ET PROCÉDÉ ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus ( 620 ) for forming a gastric restriction includes an implantable band ( 630, 640 ) and at least one tab ( 632 ). In some versions, the at least one tab may serve to stabilize the apparatus as it forms a gastric restriction. In some versions, an opening may be formed in the tabs such that sutures ( 654 ) may be used. In some versions, a tissue scaffold and/or matrix may be used on the implantable band and/or the tabs to facilitate long term support for the implantable band, such as by substantially preventing the implantable band from sliding along an axis defined by an anatomical structure ( 604 ) about which the implantable band is wrapped.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un appareil qui permet de former une restriction gastrique et qui comprend un anneau implantable et au moins une languette. Dans certaines versions, la ou les languettes peuvent servir à stabiliser l'appareil lorsqu'il forme une restriction gastrique. Dans certaines modes de réalisation, une ouverture peut être formée dans les languettes de sorte que des sutures puissent être utilisées. Dans encore certaines versions, un échafaudage et/ou une matrice de tissu peut être utilisée sur l'anneau implantable et/ou les languettes afin de faciliter un support à long terme pour l'anneau implantable, par exemple en empêchant l'anneau implantable de coulisser sensiblement le long d'un axe défini par une structure anatomique autour de laquelle l'anneau implantable est enroulé.
