Abstract
(EN)
An article for packing body cavities comprises a protective sheath (10) of supple, smooth, polymeric film, containing an absorbent sponge (12) or like tampon component (12). The sheath (10) facilitates insertion, removal of the article by minimizing tissue attachment, adherence, abrasion, and desiccation of the tampon.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un article servant à remplir des cavités anatomiques. Celui-ci est constitué d'une gaine de protection (10) faite d'un film polymère souple et lisse contenant une éponge absorbante (12) ou un composant tel qu'un tampon hygiénique (12). La gaine (10) facilite l'insertion et le retrait de l'article car elle minimise l'accrochage du tissu, l'adhérence, l'abrasion et le dessèchement du tampon hygiénique.
