(FR) DISPOSITIFS MÉDICAUX ET LEURS PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION ET D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed herein are medical devices. The medical devices generally include a biocompatible nanostructured ceramic material having an average grain size dimension of about 1 nanometer to about 1000 nanometers, a strain to failure of at least about 1 percent, and a cross-sectional hardness greater than or equal to about 350 kilograms per square millimeter. Also disclosed are methods of making and using the medical devices.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des dispositifs médicaux qui comprennent généralement un matériau céramique nanostructuré biocompatible présentant une granulométrie moyenne d'environ 1 à 1000 nanomètres, une résistance à la défaillance d'au moins environ 1 pourcent, et une dureté de section transversale supérieure ou égale à environ 350 kilogrammes par millimètre carré. L'invention concerne également des procédés de fabrication et d'utilisation des dispositifs médicaux.
