Title (EN) IMPROVED MULTIFILAMENT SURGICAL CORD
(FR) CABLE CHIRURGICAL A FILAMENTS MULTIPLES AMELIORE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)We have discovered a surgical cord comprising an interlocking multifilament sheath and an interlocked multifilament core. The sheath and core materials can be absorbable or non-absorbable and interlocking is achieved by braiding or knitting. Furthermore, the surgical cord can be used to form tissue scaffolds and medical composites, knitted into meshes or woven into textiles.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un câblé chirurgical comprenant une gaine et une âme toutes deux constituées de filaments multiples interlock. Les matériaux de cette gaine et de cette âme peuvent être résorbables ou non et la structure interlock est réalisée par tressage et par maillage. Le cordon peut, par ailleurs, être utilisé pour former des échafaudages pour tissus et des composites médicaux, tricotés ou tissés.
