Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE MEDICAL DEVICE STRUCTURES
(FR) STRUCTURES DE DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL IMPLANTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) An implantable medical device (IMD) includes a housing that is configured to enclose internal components including at least a processor and a power source. The housing defines two major surfaces that are generally parallel to each other and one or more channels that are each configured to receive a lead and electrically couple the respective lead to the internal components, where each of the channels extend substantially straight in to the housing along an axis generally parallel to the two major surfaces. The housing may be configured to be mounted to a cranium of a patient such that at least one of the two major surfaces approximates a curvature of the cranium. The IMD may include one or more funneling walls that define a rounded and smooth transition from a sidewall of the housing to a surface that defines a mouth to the channels.
(FR) Dispositif médical implantable (IMD) comprenant un boîtier qui est conçu pour renfermer des composants internes comprenant au moins un processeur et une source d'alimentation. Le boîtier délimite deux surfaces principales qui sont globalement parallèles l'une à l'autre et un ou plusieurs canaux qui sont chacun conçus pour recevoir un fil et coupler électriquement le fil respectif aux composants internes, chacun des canaux s'étendant de manière sensiblement droite dans le boîtier le long d'un axe globalement parallèle aux deux surfaces principales. Le boîtier peut être conçu pour être monté sur le crâne d'un patient de telle sorte qu'au moins l'une des deux surfaces principales s'approche d'une courbure du crâne. L'IMD peut comprendre une ou plusieurs parois en entonnoir qui délimitent une transition arrondie et lisse d'une paroi latérale du boîtier à une surface qui délimite une embouchure sur les canaux.
