Title (EN) GASTRIC BANDS FOR REDUCING OBSTRUCTIONS
(FR) ANNEAUX GASTRIQUES RÉDUISANT LES OBSTRUCTIONS
Abstract:
(EN) Generally described herein are apparatus, systems and methods related to gastric bands which provide increased compliance to reduce food obstructions and/or reduces over restriction causing symptoms such as gastric enlargement and pouch dilatation. In one embodiment, a dual ringed reservoir band or inflatable portion is provided. In one embodiment, an additional ring or a middle pouch may be added to the dual ringed reservoir band. The addition of an additional ring or middle pouch may further increase band compliance resulting in even fewer food obstructions. In another embodiment, one or more funnels can also be implemented into a gastric banding system to induce satiety and/or for guiding a bolus through the gastric band.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un appareil, des systèmes et des méthodes associés aux anneaux gastriques qui permettent d'augmenter la compliance afin de réduire les obstructions alimentaires et/ou la restriction excessive à l'origine de symptômes tels que l'élargissement gastrique ou la dilatation de la poche. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'anneau gastrique comporte un anneau réservoir à deux boucles ou une partie gonflable. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, un anneau supplémentaire ou une poche intermédiaire peut être ajouté(e) à l'anneau réservoir à deux boucles. L'ajout d'un anneau supplémentaire ou d'une poche intermédiaire peut augmenter la compliance et réduire l'occurrence des obstructions alimentaires. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, un ou plusieurs entonnoirs peuvent également être prévus dans le système d'anneau gastrique de manière à induire la satiété et/ou guider le bolus par l'anneau gastrique.
