Title
(EN) METHOD FOR MODULATING CHANGES IN INTRA-BAND PRESSURE IN A GASTRIC BAND
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE MODULATION DES VARIATIONS DE PRESSION INTRA-ANNEAU DANS UN ANNEAU GASTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A gastric band assembly has one or more bladders incorporated therein to minimize or modulate changes in intra-band pressure in response to changes in stoma area and band stoma area. The balloon portion of the gastric band encircles stomach tissue thereby forming a band stoma area. With the bladders incorporated in the gastric band assembly, the affect that changes in band stoma area have on intra-band pressure are minimized so that the patient stays at or near the physician set intra-band pressure longer than with a gastric band alone.
(FR)
Ensemble anneau gastrique comportant une ou plusieurs vessies intégrées pour minimiser ou moduler les variations de pression intra-anneau en réponse à des variations de la zone de stomie et de la zone de stomie cerclée. La partie ballon de l'anneau gastrique encercle le tissu stomacal, formant ainsi une zone de stomie cerclée. Grâce aux vessies intégrées à l'ensemble anneau gastrique, les conséquences des changements de la zone de stomie cerclée sur la pression intra-anneau sont minimisées de sorte que le patient reste à, ou à proximité de, la pression intra-anneau définie par le médecin plus longtemps qu'avec un anneau gastrique seul.
