Title (EN) MEDICAL DEVICE WITH ADJUSTABLE FLEXIBILITY
(FR) DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL AYANT UNE FLEXIBILITÉ RÉGLABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system and method for the delivery of a medical device to a treatment location. The device may include an elongate body, the elongate body including a plurality of annular segments and a jacket disposed about the plurality of annular segments and defining an interior space, and a vacuum source in fluid communication with the interior space of the jacket. When a vacuum is applied to the interior space of the jacket, the jacket may constrict about the plurality of annular elements, thereby increasing the frictional forces between the plurality of segments and between the plurality of segments and an inner surface of the jacket.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système et un procédé pour la pose d'un dispositif médical à un emplacement de traitement. Le dispositif peut comprendre un corps allongé, le corps allongé comprenant une pluralité de segments annulaires et une enveloppe disposée autour de la pluralité de segments annulaires et définissant un espace intérieur, et une source de vide en communication fluidique avec l'espace intérieur de l'enveloppe. Lorsqu'un vide est appliqué à l'espace intérieur de l'enveloppe, l'enveloppe peut se contracter autour de la pluralité de segments annulaires, en augmentant ainsi les forces de frottement entre la pluralité de segments et entre la pluralité de segments et une surface intérieure de l'enveloppe.
