Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9939660A1] The invention concerns a prosthesis for an anatomical duct comprising a tubular monobloc structure (1) with a series of longitudinal braces (3a, 3b,...) extending along a succession of broken lines, globally radially parallel to a general axis (1a) whereto the structure can be unfolded, the broken lines being arranged substantially in phase, two adjacent braces, arranged side by side, being mutually linked by crosspieces (13a, 11b). Said crosspieces are preferably either first crosspieces (11b) defining bunching zones each producing an axial break along the two linked braces or second crosspieces (13a) linking between them two adjacent braces, while maintaining, in such case, the continuity of each of the braces.
