Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR MINIMALLY-INVASIVE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF HYDROCEPHALUS AND METHOD FOR USE OF SAME
(FR) APPAREIL DE PRÉVENTION ET DE TRAITEMENT MINIMALEMENT INVASIF DE L’HYDROCÉPHALIE ET SON PROCÉDÉ D’UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (10) for minimally-invasive, including non- invasive, prevention and/or treatment of hydrocephalus and method for use of the same are disclosed. In one embodiment of the apparatus (10), a housing (50) is sized for superjacent contact with a skull having a fontanel. Within the housing (50), a compartment (12) includes a pressure applicator (88), such as a fluid-filled bladder (22), under the control of a pressure regulator (14). The pressure applicator (88) is configured to selectively apply an external pressure to the fontanel. The compartment (12) includes a pressure sensor (90) configured to measure intracranial pulse pressure of the fontanel. Further, in one embodiment, the apparatus (10) can cause pulse pressure modulation by adjusting the intracranial pulse pressure via the pressure applicator (88). This enables a non-invasive measurement of the pulse pressure and modulation thereof in infants, for example.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil (10) pour invasion minimale, comprenant la prévention et/ou le traitement non invasif, de l’hydrocéphalie et son procédé d’utilisation. Dans un mode de réalisation de l’appareil (10), un logement (50) est calibré pour le contact sus-jacent avec un crâne présentant une fontanelle. À l’intérieur du logement (50), un compartiment (12) comprend un applicateur de pression (88), tel qu’une vessie remplie de liquide (22), sous la commande d’un régulateur de pression (14). L’applicateur de pression (88) est configuré pour appliquer sélectivement une pression externe à la fontanelle. Le compartiment (12) comprend un capteur de pression (90) configuré afin de mesurer la pression d’impulsion intracrânienne de la fontanelle. En outre, dans un mode de réalisation, l’appareil (10) peut amener la modulation de la pression d’impulsion par régulation de la pression d’impulsion intracrânienne par l’intermédiaire de l’applicateur de pression (88). Ceci permet une mesure non invasive de la pression d’impulsion et sa modulation chez les enfants, par exemple.
