Title (EN) ADJUSTABLE IMPLANT
(FR) IMPLANT RÉGLABLE
Abstract:
(EN) Various embodiments of an adjustable implant are disclosed herein. The adjustable implant comprises a hydraulic mechanism disposed within the shell, which includes a first component and a second component that is moveable with respect to the first component, and a band with a first and second end disposed within the shell in a round (e.g., elliptical) configuration having a second diameter in the plane that is less than the first diameter. In some embodiments, the first end of the band may be connected to the first component and the second end of the band may be connected to the second component. In some embodiments, the mechanism may include a fluid and a pump that has a first actuator comprising a first chamber and a second actuator comprising a second chamber. Depressing the first actuator causes the first component to move in a first direction, which reduces the diameter of the band and increases the height of the implant. Depressing the second actuator causes the first component to move in a direction opposite the first direction, which increases the diameter of the band and decreases the height of the implant.
(FR) Selon divers modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne un implant réglable. L'implant réglable comprend un mécanisme hydraulique agencé à l'intérieur de la coque, qui comprend un premier composant et un second composant qui est mobile par rapport au premier, et une bande ayant une première et une seconde extrémité agencée à l'intérieur de la coque dans une configuration arrondie (p. ex., elliptique) ayant un second diamètre dans le plan qui est inférieur à son premier diamètre. Dans certains modes de réalisation, la première extrémité de la bande peut être reliée au premier composant et la seconde extrémité de la bande peut être reliée au second composant. Dans d'autres, le mécanisme peut comprendre un fluide et une pompe qui comporte un premier actionneur comprenant une première chambre et un second actionneur comprenant une seconde chambre. L'enfoncement du premier actionneur amène le premier composant à se déplacer dans un premier sens, ce qui réduit le diamètre de la bande et augmente la hauteur de l'implant. L'enfoncement du second actionneur amène le premier composant à se déplacer dans un sens opposé au premier, ce qui augmente le diamètre de la bande et réduit la hauteur de l'implant.
