Title
(EN) VAGINAL INSERT DEVICE HAVING A SUPPORT PORTION WITH PLURALITY OF FOLDABLE AREAS
(FR) DISPOSITIF À INSÉRER DANS LE VAGIN POSSÉDANT UNE PARTIE SUPPORT POURVUE D'UNE PLURALITÉ DE ZONES PLIABLES
Abstract
(EN)
Generally, a vaginal insert device used to treat urinary incontinence is disclosed. The vaginal insert device includes a support portion, a stabilizing portion, a removal device, and at least one fluid passageway extending though the support portion. The substantially cylindrical support portion has a distal end and a proximal end. In addition, the support portion has a plurality of foldable areas extending from the distal end to the proximal end. Desirably, the plurality of foldable areas helically curve as the plurality of foldable areas extend from the distal end to the proximal end. The largest outer circumference of the support portion has an insertion diameter when the plurality of foldable areas are compressed and foldable inward and an in-use diameter wherein the plurality of foldable areas are extended outward into a maximum in-use diameter position. Desirably, the in-use diameter is larger than the insertion diameter.
(FR)
L'invention concerne de manière générale, un dispositif à insérer dans le vagin utilisé pour traiter l'incontinence urinaire. Ce dispositif à insérer dans le vagin comprend une partie support, une partie de stabilisation, un dispositif de retrait, et au moins un passage de fluide qui s'étend à travers la partie support. La partie support sensiblement cylindrique présente une extrémité distale et une extrémité proximale. La partie support possède également une pluralité de zones pliables qui s'étendent de l'extrémité distale à l'extrémité proximale. De préférence, la pluralité de zones pliables se courbent de manière hélicoïdale à mesure que la pluralité de zones pliables s'étendent de l'extrémité distale à l'extrémité proximale. La circonférence extérieure la plus importante de la partie support présente un diamètre d'insertion lorsque la pluralité des zones pliables sont comprimées et pliables vers l'intérieur et un diamètre d'utilisation pour lequel la pluralité de zones pliables sont étendues vers l'extérieur en une position de diamètre d'utilisation maximum. De préférence, le diamètre d'utilisation est plus grand que le diamètre d'insertion.
