Title
(EN) MARKING PEN FOR COLORING THE SKIN
(FR) CRAYON DE MARQUAGE POUR COLORER LA PEAU
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and method are disclosed for marking the proper location of incisions to be made during a surgical procedure and for coloring the skin. The apparatus includes a pinwheel (14) with a plurality of marking points (18) extending therefrom for penetrating the outermost layer of the epidermis. A reservoir supplies a marking agent so that as the penetrating member penetrates the epidermis, marking agent is left within the epidermis, thereby leaving a dotted line which may be followed when making incisions during surgery. The method includes rolling the pinwheel (14) across the epidermis, penetrating the outermost layer of the epidermis with points on the pinwheel and leaving marking agent carried by the point between the outermost layer of the epidermis and an innermost layer of the epidermis.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé pour marquer l'emplacement précis d'incisions à effectuer pendant une procédure chirurgicale et pour colorer la peau. L'appareil comprend une roue à aiguilles (14) dotée d'une pluralité de points de marquage (18) s'étendant à partir de cette roue pour pénétrer dans la couche extérieure de l'épiderme. Un réservoir fournit un agent de marquage de sorte que lorsque l'organe de pénétration pénètre dans l'épiderme, l'agent de marquage reste dans l'épiderme, ce qui trace une ligne en pointillés qui sert de repère pour effectuer une incision en chirurgie. Le procédé consiste à faire rouler la roue à aiguilles (14) sur l'épiderme, les pointes de la roue à aiguilles pénétrant dans la couche extérieure de l'épiderme, et l'agent de marquage transporté par la pointe étant déposé entre la couche extérieure de l'épiderme et une couche intérieure de l'épiderme.
