Title
(EN) A MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) RESEAU CHIRURGICAL TRAITE COMPRENANT DES FIBRES MONOFILAMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
A soft tissue implant comprises a condensed surgical mesh having a plurality of monofilament biocompatible fibres (12). Condensing of the fibres reduces the void space between adjacent fibres (12) in the mesh and reduces the surface area of the fibres (12) available for contact with tissue (18). Condensation of the fibres (12) may be achieved by applying mechanical pressure, and/or vacuum, and/or heat to the mesh.
(FR)
Un implant de tissu mou comprend un réseau chirurgical condensé contenant une pluralité de fibres bioacompatibles monofilaments (12). Le condensation des fibres réduit l'espace vide entre des fibres adjacentes (12) dans le réseau et réduit la surface des fibres (12) disponibles pour venir au contact du tissu (18). La condensation des fibres (12) peut être obtenue par application d'une pression mécanique et/ou d'un vide et/ou de chaleur au réseau.
