Title (EN) STENTS AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF
(FR) ENDOPROTHÈSES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR LES UTILISER
Abstract:
(EN) Medical devices such as ureteral stents, and methods of use thereof are disclosed. The medical device may include an elongate member configured to be implanted within a patient's body, wherein the elongate member includes an outermost diameter and a plurality of support members (204A) disposed within a biodegradable matrix (206A). Degradation of the biodegradable material results in a reduction of size of the medical device. Some or all of the support members, such as at least two of the support members, are arranged non-concentrically.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs médicaux comme des endoprothèses urétérales. Le dispositif médical peut comprendre un élément allongé conçu pour être implanté à l'intérieur du corps d'un patient, l'élément allongé comprenant un diamètre extérieur et une pluralité d'éléments supports placés à l'intérieur d'une matrice biodégradable. La dégradation du matériau biodégradable peut entraîner une réduction de la taille du dispositif médical. La totalité ou une partie des éléments supports, par exemple au moins deux des éléments supports, peut être agencée de manière non concentrique.
