Title (EN) METHODS AND DEVICES TO DECREASE TISSUE TRAUMA DURING SURGERY
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET DISPOSITIFS PERMETTANT DE MINIMISER LES TRAUMATISMES TISSULAIRES LORS DES INTERVENTIONS CHIRURGICALES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and devices are disclosed to reduce the tissue trauma that occurs when a physician retracts or otherwise deforms a patient's tissues for surgery or other medical procedures. In one part, methods and devices are disclosed for cooling the tissue around the incision. In another part, methods and devices are disclosed that elute drugs into the tissues of the tissue margin. In another part, methods and devices are disclosed to engage tissues during retraction to cushion, to sense tissue state, and to modulate tissue state.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des procédés et des dispositifs visant à minimiser les traumatismes tissulaires se produisant lorsqu'un médecin écarte ou déforme de toute autre façon les tissus d'un patient lors d'une intervention chirurgicale ou de toute autre procédure médicale. L'invention concerne pour partie des procédés et des dispositifs permettant de refroidir le tissu autour de l'incision. L'invention concerne également des procédés et des dispositifs permettant l'élution de médicaments dans les tissus de la marge tissulaire. L'invention concerne enfin des procédés et des dispositifs permettant de solidariser les tissus lorsqu'ils sont écartés afin d'amortir le traumatisme, d'évaluer l'état du tissu et de moduler l'état du tissu.
