(FR) INSTRUMENT D'INTRODUCTION DE TISSU ENDOTHÉLIAL CORNÉEN
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is a an instrument to be utilized in a procedure to transfer donor endothelial cells to the cornea without injuring or destroying cells during the transfer process. Currently there are no instruments/techniques that facilitate the transfer process. Techniques today include forcing the tissue through a 3-5 mm opening with forceps that crush and damage the tissue. My instrument would allow for the transfer of living endothelial cells with minimal or no trauma.

Actuellement, il n'existe pas d'instruments/de techniques qui facilitent le processus de transfert. Les techniques actuelles comprennent le fait de forcer le tissu à travers une ouverture de 3 à 5 mm à l'aide de pinces qui écrasent et endommagent le tissu.
