Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TREATING GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE TRAITEMENT D'UN REFLUX GASTROŒSOPHAGIEN PATHOLOGIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) includes minimally invasively implanting a stimulating device in a patient's esophagus in the region proximate the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The patient is provided with a questionnaire related to his disease via an online service. The questionnaire is accessed on a mobile device, such as a cell phone, or on a computer with network access. The data from the sensors and the answers from the questionnaire are analyzed together by a health care provider using the online service. The data and answers are used to program the stimulating device, via the mobile device or computer, to optimize treatment.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et procédés de traitement d'un reflux gastroœsophagien pathologique (GERD) qui consistent à implanter de la manière la moins invasive possible un dispositif de stimulation dans l'œsophage d'un patient dans la région proche du sphincter inférieur de l'œsophage (SIO). On met à disposition du patient un questionnaire relatif à sa pathologie par le biais d'un service en ligne. Le questionnaire est accessible sur un dispositif mobile, tel qu'un téléphone cellulaire, ou sur un ordinateur avec accès au réseau. Les données provenant des capteurs et les réponses au questionnaire sont analysées ensemble par un prestataire de soins de santé utilisant le service en ligne. Les données et les réponses sont utilisées pour programmer le dispositif de stimulation, par le biais du dispositif mobile ou de l'ordinateur, pour optimiser le traitement.
