Abstract: front page image
(EN)In one aspect, the present invention relates to a medical device for positioning a surgical prosthesis on a fascial defect of a tissue wall. In one embodiment, the medical device has a removable flexible member having a body portion having at least one magnetic section, and a magnet member positioned in relation to the at least one magnetic section such that a movement of the magnet member causes the flexible member to move accordingly. The surgical prosthesis is detachably attachable to the flexible member, and the flexible member is introducible into and removable from a body cavity.
(FR)Dans un aspect, la présente invention concerne un dispositif médical destiné à positionner une prothèse chirurgicale sur un défaut facial ou sur une paroi de tissu. Dans un mode de réalisation, le dispositif médical a un élément flexible amovible ayant une partie de corps ayant au moins une section magnétique, et un élément d'aimant positionné relativement à la ou aux sections magnétiques de telle manière qu'un mouvement de l'élément d'aimant entraîne le mouvement de l'élément flexible en conséquence. La prothèse chirurgicale peut être attachée, de manière amovible, à l'élément flexible, et l'élément flexible peut être introduit dans et retiré d'une cavité corporelle.
