Title
(EN) MALLEABLE PENILE PROSTHESIS
(FR) PROTHESE MALLEABLE DE PENIS
Abstract
(EN)
A malleable penile prosthesis adapted to be implanted in a corpus cavernosum of a penis comprising an elongated core (1) which is bendable about its longitudinal axis with the capability of holding the configuration to which it is bent and is substantially rigid when in the unbent straight configuration, a sleeve (4) of braided biocompatible material, having an inner surface and an outer surface, enveloping the core with the inner surface of the sleeve in contact with the core and the sleeve and core being accommodated within an outer tube (8) of elastomeric material, which tube has a substantially rounded smooth outer surface and an inner surface having a profile formed of alternate grooves (14) and ribs (15) in a substantially helical arrangement. A method of forming a malleable prosthesis is also disclosed.
(FR)
Prothèse malléable conçue pour être implantée dans le corps caverneux d'un pénis et comprenant une partie centrale allongée (1) capable de s'incurver autour de son axe longitudinal, tout en conservant sa configuration incurvée et qui est sensiblement rigide quand elle se trouve dans une configuration droite et non incurvée, une gaine (4) en matériau tressé et biocompatible, pourvue d'une surface intérieure et d'une surface extérieure et enveloppant la partie centrale, la surface intérieure de ladite gaine étant en contact avec ladite partie centrale et ladite gaine et ladite partie centrale logeant à l'intérieur d'un tube extérieur (8) en matériau élastomère, ledit tube possédant une surface extérieure lisse et sensiblement arrondie, ainsi qu'une surface intérieure, dont le profil est constitué par des rainures (14) et par des nervures (15) alternées et disposées de façon sensiblement hélicoïdale. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication de la prothèse malléable.
