Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR TREATING INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION AND RELATED INDICATIONS USING AN OPTIC NERVE STENT OR SHUNT
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR TRAITER L'HYPERTENSION INTRACRÂNIENNE ET DES INDICATIONS ASSOCIÉES À L'AIDE D'UN STENT OU D'UN SHUNT NERVEUX OPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments of the present specification provide surgical methods and apparatuses to deploy at least one stent through an optic nerve sheath in order to maintain an opening/fenestration for intracranial fluid egress. The surgical method creates a fenestration, an opening, a slit, or a hole, through an optic nerve sheath of a human patient. The fenestration is created in a minimally invasive manner using an applicator, such as an endoscopic visualization apparatus, that includes a stent or shunt for deploying through the fenestration. The presently disclosed specification is indicated to treat papilledema and/or intracranial hypertension and to deliver therapeutic compositions through the optic nerve sheath.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de la présente invention concernent des procédés et des appareils chirurgicaux pour déployer au moins un stent à travers une gaine de nerf optique afin de maintenir une ouverture/fenestration pour une sortie de fluide intracrânien. Le procédé chirurgical crée une fenestration, une ouverture, une fente ou un trou, à travers une gaine de nerf optique d'un patient humain. La fenestration est créée de manière minimalement invasive à l'aide d'un applicateur, tel qu'un appareil de visualisation endoscopique, qui comprend un stent ou un shunt aux fins de déploiement à travers la fenestration. La présente invention est indiquée pour traiter l'œdème papillaire et/ou l'hypertension intracrânienne et pour administrer des compositions thérapeutiques à travers la gaine de nerf optique.
