Title (EN) SILICONE IMPLANT WITH IMPRINTED TEXTURE
(FR) IMPLANT EN SILICONE TEXTURÉ
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A procedure for making an implant having a textured silicone surface is disclosed. The method may include the steps of providing a conventional mandrel and applying a pre-formed, polymeric mesh sock to the mandrel. The sock is contacted with a silicone dispersion and the silicone dispersion is at least partially cured with the sock in contact therewith. The silicone dispersion is at least partially cured while the sock is in contact therewith and the sock is them removed, for example, by dissolution, to leave a textured elastomeric material useful as a component of a breast implant shell.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un procédé permettant de fabriquer un implant en silicone à surface texturée. Le procédé consiste à fournir une matrice classique et à la recouvrir d'un manchon préformé en maille polymère. Le manchon est mis en contact avec une dispersion de silicone qui est ensuite au moins partiellement soumise à une vulcanisation. Une fois la vulcanisation terminée, le manchon est retiré par dissolution et laisse place à une matière élastomère texturée utilisée comme composant d'une coque pour implant mammaire.
