Title (EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR TREATING PANCREATITIS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET DISPOSITIFS DE TRAITEMENT DE LA PANCRÉATITE
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed herein are methods and devices for treating pancreatitis. In the methods described herein, the distal portion of a catheter is routed into the pancreatic duct. The catheter delivers to the pancreatic duct an effective amount of a composition at an effective infusion pressure, wherein the amount and infusion pressure of the composition are effective to decrease the secretion of digestive enzymes from one or more exocrine tissues of the pancreas. The reduction of digestive enzymes may reduce damage to the islet cells typically seen in chronic pancreatitis. Backflow of the composition out of the pancreatic duct is limited, for example, by an occluding system, and aspiration system, or both.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs de traitement de la pancréatite. Dans les procédés décrits dans la description, la partie distale d’un cathéter est acheminée dans le conduit pancréatique. Le cathéter libère au niveau du conduit pancréatique une quantité efficace d’une composition à une pression de perfusion efficace, la quantité et la pression de perfusion de la composition étant efficaces pour réduire la sécrétion des enzymes digestives d’un ou plusieurs tissus exocrines du pancréas. La réduction des enzymes digestives peut réduire les détériorations aux cellules d’îlots typiquement observées dans la pancréatite chronique. Le reflux de la composition hors du conduit pancréatique est limité, par exemple, par un système d’occlusion, et un système d’aspiration, ou les deux.
