Title
(EN) RENAL NERVE DENERVATION VIA THE RENAL PELVIS
(FR) DÉNERVATION DU NERF RÉNAL VIA LE PELVIS RÉNAL
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus, systems, and methods provide access to the renal pelvis of a kidney to treat renal nerves embedded in tissue surrounding the renal pelvis. Access to the renal pelvis may be via the urinary tract or via minimally invasive incisions through the abdomen and kidney tissue. Treatment is effected by exchanging energy, typically delivering heat or extracting heat through a wall of the renal pelvis, or by delivering active substances.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil, des systèmes et des procédés donnant accès au pelvis rénal d'un rein pour traiter les nerfs rénaux inclus dans le tissu entourant le pelvis rénal. L'accès au pelvis rénal peut se faire via le tractus urinaire ou via des incisions invasives de manière minimale à travers l'abdomen et le tissu rénal. Le traitement est effectué par échange d'énergie, de manière caractéristique par administration de chaleur ou extraction de chaleur à travers une paroi du pelvis rénal ou par administration de substances actives.
