Title (EN) IMPLANT DEVICE WITH STABLIZER
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'IMPLANT AYANT UN STABILISATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) Devices and methods are described that can be used to treat various maladies, such as pulmonary vein stenosis hypertension and/or atrial fibrillation. The device may be an implant device having at least one ring and a stabilizer element. In some embodiments, the device can include two or more rings separated by one or more stabilizer element. The ring(s) and at least one stabilizer element provide mechanical pressure against adjacent tissue, e.g., the tissue of a vessel, and the pressure works to inhibit the propagation of the ring to lose position against the wall of said vessel. Methods of implanting the device and methods of treating patients therewith are also provided. Additionally, a delivery apparatus and method may also be provided to deliver such an implant device to a target location within a body, e.g., a vein are artery of a human body.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés qui peuvent être utilisés pour traiter diverses maladies, telles qu'une hypertension de sténose de veines pulmonaires et/ou une fibrillation auriculaire. Le dispositif peut être un dispositif d'implant ayant au moins une bague et un élément de stabilisateur. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le dispositif peut comprendre deux ou plusieurs bagues séparées par un ou plusieurs éléments de stabilisateur. La ou les bagues et au moins un élément de stabilisateur fournissent une pression mécanique contre un tissu adjacent, par exemple, le tissu d'un vaisseau, et la pression agit pour limiter la propagation de la bague et la perte de la position contre la paroi dudit vaisseau. L'invention concerne également des procédés d'implantation du dispositif et des procédés de traitement de patients avec ce dernier. De plus, l'invention concerne également un appareil et un procédé de pose pour poser un tel dispositif d'implant à un emplacement cible dans un corps, par exemple, une veine ou une artère d'un corps humain.
