Dispositif endo-uretral et methode associee

Endourethral device & method


L'invention concerne un dispositif endo-urétral comprenant des ensembles d'ancrage proximal et distal sélectivement espacés par un corps de dispositif. L'ensemble d'ancrage proximal est conçu pour entrer en contact par butée avec certaines parties au moins d'un col vésical de façon à ancrer le dispositif de manière proximale au moins. L'ensemble d'ancrage distal est conçu pour entrer en contact avec des parties au moins d'un urètre bulbeux de façon à ancrer le dispositif de manière distale au moins. Le corps du dispositif se prolonge entre les ensembles d'ancrage proximal et distal, le dispositif étant conçu de manière que les éléments d'ancrage soient sélectivement espacés en vue d'un positionnement fixe dans une voie urinaire inférieure, une partie du corps traversant au moins partiellement un urètre prostatique.
An endourethral device (10) including proximal (12) and distal (14) anchor assemblies selectively spaced apart by a device body (16) is provided. The proximal anchor assembly (12) is adapted to abuttingly engage at least portions of a bladder neck so as to at least proximally anchor said device (10), the distal anchor assembly (14) being adapted to engage at least portions of a bulbous urethra so as to at least distally anchor said device (10). The body (16) extends between the proximal (12) and distal (14) anchors assemblies, the device (10) being adapted such that the anchors (12,4) are selectively spaced apart for fixed positioning within a lower urinary tract in furtherance of a portion of the body (16) at least partially traversing a prostatic urethra.
