Title (EN) RESILIENT SHEET FOR WOUND APPROXIMATION
(FR) FEUILLE FLEXIBLE POUR LE RAPPROCHEMENT DES LEVRES D'UNE PLAIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a wound approximation device and method for safely applying cyanoacrylate or other adhesives to skin lacerations. The wound approximation device comprises a resilient sheet and an opening, wherein the opening is of a sufficient size such that it surrounds a skin wound and exposes a margin of skin surrounding the wound when the resilient sheet in a streched form is placed against the skin, and wherein a portion of the resilient sheet adjacent to the opening and opposite to a side of the resilient sheet to be placed against the skin comprises a substance which does not form a strong bond with a wound-sealing adhesive used to seal the wound.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif pour le rapprochement des lèvres d'une plaie, et un procédé pour l'application maîtrisée de cyanoacrylate ou d'autres adhésifs à une plaie contuse. Le dispositif comprend une feuille flexible, et une ouverture de taille suffisante pour entourer la plaie et exposer une marge de peau autour de la plaie lorsque la feuille flexible étirée est placée contre la peau. Une partie de la feuille flexible, adjacente à l'ouverture et opposée à un côté de la feuille qui se place contre la peau, comprend une substance ne formant pas une liaison forte avec un adhésif de fermeture de plaie.
