The Magnetic Anal Sphincter FENIX™

Résumé

Le sphincter magnétique est un procédé de renforcement sphinctérien qui consiste à placer un anneau de billes magnétiques autour du canal anal dans le but de serrer ce dernier. Lors des efforts de poussées du patient, les billes magnétiques s’écartent, puis reprennent leur position d’origine spontanément.

Abstract
