Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE LAYERS AND METHODS FOR ALTERING IMPLANTABLE LAYERS FOR USE WITH SURGICAL FASTENING INSTRUMENTS
(FR) COUCHES IMPLANTABLES ET PROCÉDÉS DE MODIFICATION DE COUCHES IMPLANTABLES À UTILISER AVEC DES INSTRUMENTS DE FIXATION CHIRURGICALE
Abstract:
(EN) A method is disclosed for altering a implantable layer which includes the steps of obtaining an implantable layer comprising a surface at least partially comprised from a material with a glass transition temperature and a melting temperature, heating the surface to a temperature higher than the glass transition temperature and lower than the melting temperature, manipulating the surface, allowing the manipulated surface to cool below the glass transition temperature, and releasing the surface.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de modification d'une couche implantable qui comprend les étapes suivantes : obtention d'une couche implantable comportant une surface au moins partiellement constituée d'un matériau présentant une température de transition vitreuse et une température de fusion ; chauffage de la surface à une température supérieure à la température de transition vitreuse et inférieure à la température de fusion ; manipulation de la surface, afin que la surface manipulée puisse refroidir en dessous de la température de transition vitreuse ; et libération de la surface.
