Title (EN) TISSUE GRAFT CONSTRUCT FOR REPLACEMENT OF CARTILAGINOUS STRUCTURES
(FR) CONSTRUCTION DE GREFFE TISSULAIRE POUR LE REMPLACEMENT DE STRUCTURES CARTILAGINEUSES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of forming a reconstructive structure for cartilaginous elements, and the product produced by that method is disclosed. A length of small intestine submucosa tissue (10) is wrapped around a mandril (20) having legs (22 and 24) connected a bight (26) and diverging from that point. The diverging angle of the legs (22, 24) of the mandril is selected to compensate for various lengths of the edges (12, 14) and to produce flat or planar layers. The multilayered composite produced is used in the repair or replacement of cartilaginous tissues.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de produire une structure de reconstruction destinée à des éléments cartilagineux, ainsi que le produit fabriqué selon ce procédé. Une longueur de la sous-muqueuse de l'intestin grêle (10) est enroulée autour d'une broche (20) comportant des pieds (22, 24) reliés par une anse (26) et divergeant à partir de ce point. L'angle de divergence des pieds (22, 24) de la broche est choisi de façon à compenser les différences de longueur des bords (12, 14) et à produire des couches plates ou planes. Le composite multicouche produit est utilisé pour réparer ou remplacer des tissus cartilagineux.
