Title (EN) POLY(VINYL ALCOHOL) CRYOGEL
(FR) CRYOGEL D'ALCOOL POLYVINYLIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention comprises a poly(vinyl alcohol) hydrogel construct having a wide range of mechanical strengths for use as a human tissue replacement. A process in connection with the present invention eliminates any step involved with dehydration of the hydrogel prior to implantation thereof. The hydrogel construct may comprise a tissue scaffolding, a low bearing surface within a joint, or any other structure which is suitable for supporting the growth of tissue.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un produit de recombinaison d'hydrogel d'alcool polyvinylique présentant une large plage de résistances mécaniques et s'utilisant comme prothèse tissulaire humaine. Un procédé en liaison avec la présente invention permet d'éliminer toute étape concernant la déshydratation de l'hydrogel avant son implantation. Le produit de recombinaison d'hydrogel peut comporter un squelette tissulaire, une surface d'appui inférieure au sein d'une articulation, ou bien toute autre structure appropriée pour favoriser la croissance tissulaire.
