Title (EN) BACTERIA RESISTANT MEDICAL DEVICES
(FR) DISPOSITIFS MEDICAUX RESISTANTS AUX BACTERIES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A novel approach to fight bacterial growth on and attach to medical devices/implants (34) is described. This approach reduces the necessity of the painful and complicated replacement of the medical devices (34) that frequently need to remain in the body for periods of time longer than is recommended using a traditionally sterilized device. Several methods are described to kill bacteria that have attached to the surface of medical devices (34). Long term use is then possible with those medical devices (34). Furthermore a medical device (34) is described under this method that has a photosensitizing compound (32) affixed to or near the device (34) surface with means to periodically activate the compound by suitable illumination (36).
(FR) L'invention concerne une nouvelle approche permettant de combattre la croissance ou la fixation bactérienne sur des dispositifs médicaux/implants (34). Cette approche permet de limiter le remplacement douloureux et compliqué de dispositifs médicaux (34) qui doivent fréquemment rester dans le corps, pendant des durées plus longues que recommandé lorsqu'on utilise un dispositif stérilisé traditionnel. Plusieurs techniques permettent de tuer les bactéries fixées à la surface des dispositifs médicaux (34). Il est ensuite possible d'utiliser ces dispositifs (34) pendant une longue période. L'invention concerne également un dispositif médical (34) utilisé dans les conditions dudit procédé, possédant un composé de photosensibilisation (32) fixé à la surface du dispositif (34) ou proche de celle-ci, des moyens permettant d'activer périodiquement ledit composé au moyen d'un éclairement appropriée (36).
