Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE FLUID MANAGEMENT SYSTEM HAVING CLOG RESISTANT CATHETERS, AND METHODS OF USING SAME
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GESTION DE FLUIDE IMPLANTABLE COMPORTANT DES CATHÉTERS RÉSISTANTS AU BOUCHAGE, ET SES PROCÉDÉS D’UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) A fluid management system for moving bodily fluid accumulated due to ascites, pleural effusion or pericardial effusion is provided including an implantable pump coupled to an inflow catheter, an outflow catheter, and optionally an anti-clog catheter. The fluid management system facilitates removal of fluid from a body region, such as the peritoneum, pleural cavity or pericardial sac, where drainage is desired to another body region, such as the urinary bladder or the peritoneal cavity. The system includes clog resistant mechanisms such as clog resistant catheters and/or programmed routines for cycling fluid through inlet catheters in predetermined time intervals and/or responsive to sensed conditions to minimize the risk that inlet catheters become clogged due to, for example, tissue ingrowth and/or solid objects within accumulated fluid.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de gestion de fluide pour déplacer un fluide corporel accumulé en raison d’une ascite, d’un épanchement pleural ou d’un épanchement péricardique, comprenant une pompe implantable couplée à un cathéter d’entrée, un cathéter de sortie, et facultativement un cathéter anti-bouchage. Le système de gestion de fluide facilite le retrait de fluide depuis une région corporelle, telle que le péritoine, la cavité pleurale ou le sac péricardique, où un drainage est souhaité vers une autre région corporelle, telle que la vessie urinaire ou la cavité péritonéale. Le système comprend des mécanismes résistants au bouchage tels que des cathéters résistants au bouchage et/ou des sous-programmes programmés pour faire circuler de façon cyclique un fluide à travers des cathéters d’entrée dans des intervalles de temps prédéterminés et/ou en réponse à des conditions détectées pour réduire au minimum le risque que des cathéters d’entrée deviennent bouchés en raison de, par exemple, une croissance interne de tissu et/ou des objets solides dans le fluide accumulé.
