Title
(EN) COMPOSITIONS AND METHODS FOR REMOVING ASCITIC FLUID FROM THE ABDOMEN
(FR) COMPOSITIONS ET PROCÉDÉS D'ÉLIMINATION DE FLUIDE D'ASCITE DE L'ABDOMEN
Abstract
(EN) The present invention features devices that can be used to extract ascites and other fluids from the body with a minimally invasive procedure and, if desired, can also be used to flush the cavity (e.g., the abdominal cavity) from which the fluids were removed. The devices also permit characterization of the fluids in that a surgeon or other health care provider can conveniently obtain a sample of the fluids to assess their composition. The amount of fluid removed from a cavity can also be determined. While the present devices and procedures are not limited to those that bring about any particular physiological response, we believe they will help maintain blood flow and prevent the accumulation of toxins and inflammatory cytokines in bodily cavities, such as the abdominal cavity. We may refer to the devices of the invention as MIST, as they allow for minimally invasive suction and treatment.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs qui peuvent être utilisés pour extraire des ascites et autres fluides du corps, au moyen d'une intervention chirurgicale minimalement invasive, et, si désiré, qui peuvent également être utilisés pour rincer la cavité (par exemple la cavité abdominale) de laquelle les fluides ont été retirés. Les dispositifs permettent également une caractérisation des fluides en ce qu'un chirurgien ou autre fournisseur de soins de santé peut facilement obtenir un échantillon des fluides afin d'évaluer leur composition. La quantité de fluide retiré d'une cavité peut également être déterminée. Bien que les dispositifs et les procédés présents ne soient pas limités à ceux qui provoquent une quelconque réponse physiologique particulière, nous pensons qu'ils aideront à maintenir le flux sanguin et à empêcher l'accumulation de toxines et de cytokines inflammatoires dans les cavités corporelles, telles que la cavité abdominale. Nous pouvons nous référer aux dispositifs de l'invention en tant que technique chirurgicale minimalement invasive (MIST), étant donné qu'ils permettent une succion et un traitement minimalement invasifs.
