Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure relates to a method and device for removing solid matter from a brain and controlling bleeding associated with the removal of the matter. The method involves securing a cranial anchor to a region of the skull in which an opening has been created to ex- pose brain matter and introducing through a passage defined by the anchor a channel member that displaces brain tissue and exposes the solid matter. After removing the solid matter, a flowable hemostat is introduced into the cavity created by removal of the matter. A balloon introduced into the working channel is then inflated to compress the hemostat against the wall of the cavity to control bleeding from blood vessels around the cavity. The device includes a cranial anchor (12), a channel member (14) defining a working channel, an optional remov- able trocar, and a catheter (44) for introducing the hemostat and the inflatable balloon into the cavity.

La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif pour retirer une matière solide d'un cerveau et réguler le saignement associé au retrait de la matière. Le procédé consiste à fixer un ancrage crânien à une région du crâne dans laquelle une ouverture a été créée pour exposer une matière cérébrale et à introduire à travers un passage défini par l'ancrage un élément de canal qui déplace le tissu cérébral et expose la matière solide. Après retrait de la matière solide, un agent hémostatique coulant est introduit dans la cavité créée par le retrait de la matière. Un ballonnet introduit dans le canal de travail est ensuite gonflé pour comprimer l'agent hémostatique contre la paroi de la cavité pour réguler le saignement issu des vaisseaux sanguins autour de la cavité. Le dispositif comprend un ancrage crânien, un élément de canal définissant un canal de travail, un trocart amovible facultatif, et un cathéter pour introduire l'agent hémostatique et le ballonnet gonflable dans la cavité.
