Title (EN) PHARMACOLOGICAL SLEEVE
(FR) MANCHON PHARMACOLOGIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to methods, devices, and systems for preventing complications, including for example, infection associated with any percutaneous or external fixation of bones by placing a pharmacological sleeve over an external fixation element. The pharmacological sleeve may be comprised of a polymer sleeve having one or more internal splines along at least part of the inner surface of the sleeve. The sleeve may be suffused or coated on any or all surfaces with a pharmacological coating which allows accumulation of drugs in the tissue surrounding the external fixation element, thereby reducing potential complications.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des procédés, dispositifs et systèmes de prévention de complications dont par exemple les infections associées à des fixations d'os percutanées ou extérieures, consistant à placer un manchon pharmacologique sur un élément extérieur de fixation. Ledit manchon, qui peut être en polymère et présenter des cannelures longitudinales sur une partie au moins de sa surface intérieure, peut être suffusé ou revêtu sur tout ou partie de ses surfaces d'un revêtement pharmacologique permettant d'accumuler des médicaments dans les tissus entourant l'élément extérieur de fixation, et par là d'éviter les complications potentielles.
