Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHOD TO TREAT VAGINAL ATROPHY
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRAITEMENT DE L’ATROPHIE VAGINALE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of treating vaginal tissue atrophy in a female subject, the method including the steps of engaging an energy delivery element with tissue in or around the subject's vagina; applying energy to the tissue from the energy delivery element; and increasing blood flow to internal vaginal tissue to an increased level above a baseline level of blood flow to the internal vaginal tissue, the increased level of blood flow to the internal vaginal tissue persisting after the applying step ceases. The invention also provides devices for performing this therapy.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de traitement de l’atrophie vaginale chez un sujet féminin, le procédé comprenant les étapes de mise en prise d’un élément délivrant de l’énergie avec un tissu dans ou autour du vagin du sujet ; d’application d’énergie au tissu par l'élément de délivrance d'énergie ; et d’augmentation du flux sanguin vers le tissu vaginal interne pour atteindre un niveau de flux sanguin accru, supérieur à un niveau de flux sanguin de référence, dans le tissu vaginal interne, le niveau accru de flux sanguin vers le tissu vaginal interne persistant après l'arrêt de l'étape d'application. L’invention propose également des dispositifs pour la réalisation de cette thérapie.
