Title (EN) OCULAR PLUG FORMED FROM PLACENTA DERIVED COLLAGEN BIOFABRIC
(FR) OBTURATEUR OCULAIRE FORME A PARTIR DUN TISSU BIOLOGIQUE A BASE DE COLLAGENE DERIVE DU PLACENTA
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to ocular plugs formed from a biodegradable material. The plugs comprises a shaft and, optionally, a cap. The ocular plugs are intended to occlude, and to repair, discontinuities in the sclera, whether formed deliberately during injection or surgical foray into the eye, or accidentally. The method further provides methods of making the ocular plug, the invention also provides methods of using the ocular plugs to occlude and repair discontinuities in the sclera, or to deliver biologically active compounds to the sclera or the eye. Finally, the invention provides kits comprising one or more ocular plugs in a container. In a preferred embodiment, the plug is made of dried amniotic membrane.
(FR) L'invention concerne des obturateurs oculaires formés à partir d'un tissu biodégradable. Les obturateurs comprennent un arbre et, éventuellement un capuchon. Les obturateurs oculaires sont destinés à occlure et à réparer des discontinuités dans le blanc de l'oeil, qu'elles soient formées délibérément pendant une injection ou une incursion chirurgicale dans l'oeil ou accidentellement. L'invention concerne également des procédés de production d'obturateur oculaire et leurs procédés d'utilisation pour occlure et réparer des discontinuités dans le blanc de l'oeil, ou pour distribuer des composés biologiquement actifs au banc de l'oeil. L'invention concerne enfin des trousses comprenant un ou plusieurs obturateur(s) dans un récipient.
