Title
(EN) HYDRAULIC URETHRAL OCCLUSIVE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF HYDRAULIQUE D'OCCLUSION URÉTRALE
Abstract
(EN)
A totally implantable method for occluding the urethra or bladder neck utilizing an occlusive cuff connected to a control mechanism via a conduit tube. The occlusive cuff is reversibly changed from an activated (occlusive condition) to a de-activated (non-occlusive) condition by depressing a deactivation button contained within a resilient, elastomeric sheath surrounding the control mechanism. The occlusive condition is once again obtained by depressing an activation button also situated within the resilient sheath. In the occlusive condition, a preset tension is applied to a flexible diaphragm through a tensioning suture by a constant force spring contained within the control mechanism. This tension is translated into an occlusive pressure applied to the urethra or bladder neck sufficient to prevent urinary leakage.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'implantation totale visant à occlure l'urètre et le col de la vessie à l'aide d'un manchon d'occlusion raccordé à un mécanisme de commande par l'intermédiaire d'un tube de conduit. Le manchon d'occlusion passe de manière réversible d'un état activé (occlusif) à un état désactivé (non occlusif) lorsqu'on presse un bouton de désactivation contenu dans une gaine élastomère résiliente entourant le mécanisme de commande. L'état occlusif est obtenu une nouvelle fois lorsqu'on presse un bouton d'activation situé également dans la gaine résiliente. A l'état occlusif, une tension prédéfinie est appliquée sur un diaphragme flexible dans une suture de tension par un ressort à force constante contenu dans le mécanisme de commande. Cette tension est transformée en une pression occlusive appliquée sur l'urètre ou le col de la vessie de manière suffisante pour prévenir les fuites urinaires.
