Title (EN) REDUCED-PRESSURE WOUND TREATMENT SYSTEMS AND METHODS EMPLOYING MANIFOLD STRUCTURES
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE TRAITEMENT DE PLAIES PAR PRESSION RÉDUITE ET MÉTHODES FAISANT APPEL À DES STRUCTURES DISTRIBUTRICES
Abstract:
(EN) Manifold structures, systems, and methods are disclosed that include using longitudinal members and one or more shaped projections to cause microstrain at a tissue site. In one instance a manifold structure includes a plurality of spaced longitudinal members and at least one shaped projection coupled to at least one of the plurality of longitudinal members for creating a microstrain at a tissue site. The at least one shaped projection includes a columnar member having a distal end and includes an enlarged member positioned at the distal end of the columnar member. The columnar member has a first outer diameter (D1) and the enlarged member has a second outer diameter (D2). The second outer diameter of the enlarged member is greater than the first outer diameter of the columnar member (D2 > D1). Other systems, methods, and structures are presented.
(FR) L'invention concerne des structures distributrices, des systèmes et des méthodes qui font appel à l'utilisation d'éléments longitudinaux et d'une ou de plusieurs parties saillantes profilées pour provoquer une micro-contrainte au niveau d'un site tissulaire. Dans un mode de réalisation, une structure distributrice comprend une pluralité d'éléments longitudinaux espacés et au moins une partie saillante profilée accouplée à au moins un élément de la pluralité d'éléments longitudinaux afin de créer une micro-contrainte au niveau d'un site tissulaire. La ou les parties saillantes profilées comprennent un élément colonnaire présentant une extrémité distale et comprend un élément élargi positionné au niveau de l'extrémité distale de l'élément colonnaire. L'élément colonnaire présente un premier diamètre extérieur (D1) et l'élément élargi présente un second diamètre extérieur (D2). Le second diamètre extérieur de l'élément élargi est supérieur au premier diamètre extérieur de l'élément colonnaire (D2 > D1). L'invention concerne également d'autres systèmes, méthodes et structures.
