Title (EN) HYDRAULIC GASTRIC BAND WITH REVERSIBLE SELF-OPENING MECHANISM
(FR) ANNEAU GASTRIQUE HYDRAULIQUE À MÉCANISME D'AUTO-OUVERTURE RÉVERSIBLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides for a gastric banding system including an adjustment system that automatically increases the size of a constricted portion of a gastric lumen in response to an obstruction passing through the gastric lumen. The size of the constricted portion of the gastric lumen increases rapidly when the obstruction approaches a gastric band constricting the lumen. The adjustment system is also configured to slowly return the constricted gastric lumen to an equilibrium size the lumen had prior to the obstruction passing through the lumen. Various embodiments of gastric banding systems and adjustment systems are disclosed.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un système d'anneau gastrique comprenant un système d'ajustement qui augmente automatiquement la taille de la partie rétrécie d'une lumière gastrique en réponse au passage d'une obstruction dans ladite lumière gastrique. La taille de la partie rétrécie de la lumière gastrique augmente rapidement quand l'obstruction approche d'un anneau gastrique rétrécissant la lumière. Le système d'ajustement est également conçu pour ramener lentement la lumière gastrique à sa taille d'équilibre, antérieure au passage de l'obstruction dans ladite lumière. Divers modes de réalisation des systèmes d'anneaux gastriques et des systèmes d'ajustement selon l'invention sont décrits.
