Title (EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR TREATING METABOLIC DISEASE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF POUR LE TRAITEMENT DE MALADIE MÉTABOLIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of treating metabolic disease includes applying stress to a portion of the gastrointestinal tract of a patient diagnosed with metabolic disease to treat the metabolic disease. A metabolic disease treatment device includes a surface that is shaped to a portion of the gastrointestinal tract that is adapted to apply stress to the portion of the gastrointestinal tract. A control causes the surface to apply stress intermittently to the portion of the gastrointestinal tract in a manner that treats the metabolic disease without causing substantial loss of body mass.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de traitement de maladie métabolique qui inclut l'application d'une contrainte à une partie du tractus gastro-intestinal d'un patient chez qui on a diagnostiqué une maladie métabolique pour traiter la maladie métabolique. Le dispositif de traitement de la maladie métabolique inclut une surface qui est formée à une portion du tractus gastro-intestinal qui est adaptée pour appliquer la contrainte à la partie du tractus gastro-intestinal. Une commande amène la surface servant à appliquer une contrainte de manière intermittente à la partie du tractus gastro-intestinal d'une manière qui traite la maladie métabolique sans provoquer une perte substantielle de la masse corporelle.
