Title (EN) BREAST IMPLANT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'IMPLANT MAMMAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A breast implant system comprises at least one casing (3, 4) with a flexible outer shape for implantation in a patient's body so as to form part of a breast implant (10) and further comprises at least one first element (1) contained in the casing and optionally at least one second element (2) also contained in the casing. The first and second elements are either displaceable within the casing and/or their volume can be changed in order to change the shape and/or size of the breast implant. A reservoir (R) comprising a lubricating fluid is connected to the casing so as to allow lubricating fluid to be supplied to and removed from the casing in order to reduce surface friction between adjacent elements and/or between the casing and the elements before the shape of the breast implant is changed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'implant mammaire comprenant au moins une enveloppe (3, 4) comprenant une forme externe flexible pour une implantation dans le corps d'un patient de manière à former une partie d'un implant mammaire (10) et comprenant en outre au moins un premier élément (1) contenu dans l'enveloppe et éventuellement au moins un second élément (2) également contenu dans l'enveloppe. Les premier et second éléments sont déplaçables dans l'enveloppe et/ou leur volume peut être modifié afin de changer la forme et/ou la taille de l'implant mammaire. Un réservoir (R) comprenant un liquide lubrifiant est relié à l'enveloppe de manière à acheminer et retirer le liquide lubrifiant de l'enveloppe afin de réduire le frottement de surface entre les éléments adjacents et/ou entre l'enveloppe et les éléments avant de changer la forme de l'implant mammaire.
