Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CLAMPING TISSUE LAYERS AND OCCLUDING TUBULAR BODY STRUCTURES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE CLAMPAGE DE COUCHES DE TISSU ET D'OCCLUSION DE STRUCTURES CORPORELLES TUBULAIRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Apparatus and method for occluding hollow body structures, such as blood vessels, and for attaching tissue layers together by providing implantable elements on opposite sides of the structure or tissue layers and drawing the implants together to occlude the body structure and/or bring the tissue layers together. The implants are deliverable in a low profile configuration and self-expand to an enlarged configuration. The implantable elements are delivered by transfixing the body structure, then releasing the implants on opposite sides of the body structure and drawing the implants together to occlude the structure. The implants may grip the tissue in a serpentine pattern or in a direct clamping pattern.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un appareil et un procédé d'occlusion de structures corporelles creuses, telles que des vaisseaux sanguins, et de liaison de couches de tissu par l'utilisation d'éléments implantables sur des côtés opposés de la structure ou des couches de tissu et le serrage des implants l'un contre l'autre pour occlure la structure corporelle et/ou réunir les couches de tissu. Les implants peuvent être installés dans une configuration à profil bas et se dilater automatiquement pour adopter une configuration agrandie. Les éléments implantables sont installés en transperçant la structure corporelle, puis en libérant les implants sur des côtés opposés de la structure corporelle et en serrant les implants l'un contre l'autre pour occlure la structure. Les implants peuvent saisir le tissu selon un motif en zigzag ou selon un motif de serrage direct.
