Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9930636A1] Manually operated opening and closing compression device which is implanted wholly or partly as a cuff or a ring round tubular organs in animals or humans. Through the cuff or the ring a specially shaped plug is wedged in, whereby the lumen of the tubular organ is compressed and kinked. The invention relates to an opening and closing device for whole or partial implantation round the tubular organs (2) of humans or animals. The tubular organ (2) is compressed by simple wedging in of a plug (4) shaped as an ellipsoid body with an impression round its middle, which is retained by an arc of the cuff (1) or the ring (1). The cuff (1) or the ring (1) encircles the tubular organ (2), wherefore wedging in of the plug (4) into the lumen of the cuff (1) or the ring (1) presses against the tissue round the tubular organ (2), whereby the lumen (3) of the tubular organ is compressed.
