Title (EN) SELF-ALIGNING TISSUE GROWTH GUIDE
(FR) GUIDE DE CROISSANCE TISSULAIRE A ALIGNEMENT AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to artificial tissue growth guides comprising a core and an outer sleeve, which facilitates the regeneration of damaged tissues, such as nerves. The core is fixed to the sleeve at two attachment sites so that cells seeded within the core produce mechanical tension between the attachment sites. This tension aligns the cells and the fibres of the core and provides an improved substrate for tissue regeneration. Growth guides may be surgically implanted into an individual.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des guides de croissance tissulaire artificielle comprenant une âme et un manchon externe, lesdits guides permettant de faciliter la régénération de tissus endommagés, tels que des nerfs. L'âme est fixée sur le manchon au niveau de deux sites d'attachement, de telle façon que des cellules ensemencées au sein de l'âme produisent une tension mécanique entre les sites d'attachement. Cette tension permet d'aligner les cellules et les fibres de l'âme et d'engendrer un substrat amélioré destiné à la régénération tissulaire. Des guides de croissance peuvent être implantés de manière chirurgicale chez un individu.
