Abstract: front page image
(EN)A surgically implantable prosthetic nipple and breast, each having comfort and aesthetic enhancing elastic-return properties that respectively approximate a human nipple and breast, are formed using a material that is inert to the human body, including for example a negative thermal expansion material such as Zirconium tungstate (ZrW2O8). The nipple and breast may be single or multi-chambered and /or have a plurality of ribs or other spring-like structure to respectively approximate the shape, size, and dynamic characteristics of a human nipple and breast.
(FR)L'invention concerne un mammelon et un sein prothétiques implantables par voie chirurgicale, chacun présentant des propriétés de retour élastique améliorant le confort et l'esthétique qui se rapprochent respectivement d'un mammelon et d'un sein humain. Lesdits mammelon et sein sont formés à l'aide d'un matériau qui est inerte par rapport au corps humain, comprenant par exemple un matériau à dilatation thermique négative tel que du tungstate de zirconium (ZrW2O8). Le mammelon et le sein peuvent être mono-chambre ou multi-chambres et/ou présenter une pluralité de nervures ou autre structure de type ressort afin de se rapprocher respectivement de la forme, de la taille et des caractéristiques dynamiques d'un mammelon et d'un sein humain.
