Title (EN) A TEXTILE PROSTHESIS
(FR) PROTHESE TEXTILE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A textile prosthesis comprising a unitary body (10) of predetermined shape having structural integrity, the body including at least one anchorage body portion (ST, B) for attachment to an anatomical body part, the body being composed of a combination of binding yarns (30) and tensile load bearing filaments (20), the binding yarns being located at least in the or in each of said anchorage body portions and being interconnected to one another by sewn stitches (31, 32), the tensile load bearing filaments being located inbetween said stitches so as to be constrained to extend through said unitary body along predetermined pathways extending in one or more predetermined directions so as to render the body resistance to stretch when a tensile load is applied in said one or more predetermined directions.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une prothèse textile comprenant un corps unitaire (10) de forme prédéterminée qui présente l'intégrité sturcturale requise. Le corps comprend au moins un partie d'ancrage (ST, B) sur laquelle vient se fixer une partie anatomique et qui est constitué d'une combinaison de fils de liaison (30) et de filaments (20) pouvant supporter une charge de traction. Les fils de liaison sont disposés dans la ou les parties d'ancrage et sont raccordés les uns aux autres par des points de liage cousus (31, 32). Les filaments supportant la charge de traction sont disposés entre lesdits points de liage de manière à devoir s'étirer au travers dudit corps unitaire selon des trajets prédéterminés orientés dans une ou plusieurs directions et à reconstituer la résistance du corps à l'étirement lorsqu'une force de traction est appliquée dans une ou plusieurs desdites directions prédéterminées.
