Title (EN) A SOFT TISSUE DEFECT REPAIR DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE REPARATION DE DEFAUTS DE TISSUS MOUS
Abstract:
(EN) An inguinal hernia repair device in the form of an implantable plug that is affixed at one end to the center region of a sheet of implantable material. The plug takes the form of a plurality of hollow members, arranged so as to be in substantially parallel relationship when implanted into a defect. The hollow members are preferably tubular members and are preferably bundled together by various means, such as bonding or wrapping a band or strand about the plurality of hollow members to maintain them in adjacent and contacting relationship during insertion into a defect.
(FR) Dispositif de réparation de hernie inguinale se présentant sous la forme d'un bouchon implantable fixé à une extrémité de la région centrale d'une plaque de matière implantable. Le bouchon se présente sous la forme d'une pluralité d'éléments creux agencés de manière à se trouver en relation sensiblement parallèle lorsqu'ils sont implantés dans un défaut. Les éléments creux sont des éléments de préférence tubulaires et sont de préférence regroupés en faisceau par divers moyen tels que par liaison ou enroulement d'une bande ou d'un fil autour de la pluralité d'éléments creux afin de les maintenir en relation adjacente et en contact pendant l'insertion dans une partie défectueuse.
