Title (EN) TISSUE INTEGRATION IMPLANT
(FR) IMPLANT POUR INTÉGRATION TISSULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a tissue defect repair implant 12 including a porous material, wherein the material is expandable or compressible. The implant may be a scaffold, and may also be formed of a material such as, for example, collagen or demineralized bone matrix. Another aspect of the invention may be a method for the repair of a tissue defect in a patient in need thereof, including implanting an implant 12 between two adjacent tissues, wherein the implant may include a porous material which is expandable or compressible. The two tissues may be soft tissue 25 and hard tissue 30, and alternatively, the two tissues may be soft tissue 25, and may further be the same or different soft tissues, 25, 50.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un implant (12) pour réparation de défaut tissulaire comprenant un matériau poreux, ledit matériau étant extensible ou compressible. L'implant peut être un échafaudage, et peut également être constitué d'un matériau comme, par exemple, le collagène ou une matrice osseuse déminéralisée. Un autre aspect de l'invention peut concerner un procédé de réparation de défaut tissulaire chez un patient demandeur, consistant à implanter un implant 12 entre deux tissus adjacents, l'implant pouvant comporter un matériau poreux qui est extensible ou compressible. Les deux tissus peuvent être un tissu souple (25) et un tissu dur (30), et autre possibilité, les deux tissus peuvent être des tissus souples (25) et peuvent également être des tissus souples identiques ou différents, (25, 50).
