Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICES FOR REPAIR OF VAGINAL WALL OR UTERUS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIFS DE RÉPARATION DE LA PAROI VAGINALE OU DE L'UTÉRUS
Abstract
(EN)
A method for repairing a vaginal wall damaged by pelvic organ prolapse includes forming an access opening to provide abdominal access to the vaginal apex and introducing a reinforcing implant, having a body and a tongue, through the access opening and positioning the body of the reinforcing implant over a portion of the vaginal wall for repair. At least a portion of the body of the reinforcing implant is attached to the vaginal wall and the tongue of the reinforcing implant is positioned anterior to the sacrum. Placement of the reinforcing implant is stabilized for a duration sufficient to achieve tissue in-growth into the reinforcing implant. The method may also be used to repair the uterus and may be performed using a variety of techniques. The invention also relates to a reinforcing implant for use during the repair of the vagina or uterus, and a splinting appliance therefor.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé de réparation d'une paroi vaginale endommagée par un prolapsus des organes pelviens qui comprend la formation d'une ouverture d'accès permettant un accès abdominal à l'apex vaginal et l'introduction d'un implant de renforcement, ayant un corps et une languette, à travers l'ouverture d'accès, et le positionnement du corps de l'implant de renforcement sur une partie de la paroi vaginale à réparer. Au moins une partie du corps de l'implant de renforcement est fixée à la paroi vaginale et la languette de l'implant de renforcement est positionnée à l'avant du sacrum. La position de l'implant de renforcement est stable pendant une durée suffisante pour permettre la croissance du tissu dans l'implant de renforcement. Le procédé peut également être utilisé pour réparer l'utérus et peut être réalisé à l'aide d'une variété de techniques. L'invention concerne en outre un implant de renforcement destiné à être utilisé durant la réparation du vagin ou de l'utérus, et un appareil de contention associé.
