Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TREATING THE BLADDER WITH CONDENSABLE VAPOR
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE TRAITEMENT DE LA VESSIE AVEC DE LA VAPEUR CONDENSABLE
Abstract
(EN)
A vapor delivery system and method is provided that is adapted for ablating bladder tissue to treat overactive bladder (OAB). The vapor delivery system includes an anchor tip configured anchor the system in the bladder while condensable vapor is delivered to target tissue. In one method, the vapor delivery system is advanced transurethrally into the patient to access the target tissue of the bladder, which can include a surface sensor of the bladder responsible for creating an urge incontinence sensation. The vapor delivery system includes a vapor source that provides a high quality vapor for delivery to tissue.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de distribution de vapeur qui sont conçus pour l'ablation de tissu de vessie afin de traiter une vessie hyperactive (VH). Le système de distribution de vapeur comprend une pointe d'ancrage configurée pour ancrer le système dans la vessie tandis que de la vapeur condensable est distribuée au tissu cible. Dans un procédé, le système de distribution de vapeur est avancé par voie trans-urétrale dans le corps du patient pour accéder au tissu cible de la vessie qui peut comporter un capteur de surface de la vessie responsable de la création d'une sensation d'incontinence impérieuse. Le système de distribution de vapeur comprend une source de vapeur qui fournit de la vapeur de haute qualité pour une distribution à un tissu.
