Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE LAYERS AND METHODS FOR MODIFYING THE SHAPE OF THE IMPLANTABLE LAYERS FOR USE WITH A SURGICAL FASTENING INSTRUMENT
(FR) COUCHES IMPLANTABLES ET PROCÉDÉS DE MODIFICATION DE LA FORME DESDITES COUCHES IMPLANTABLES À UTILISER AVEC UN INSTRUMENT DE FIXATION CHIRURGICALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method is disclosed for altering an implantable layer for use with a surgical instrument which includes the steps of obtaining an implantable layer comprised at least partially from a material including a glass transition temperature and a melting temperature, wherein the implantable layer includes a first shape, heating the material to a temperature higher than the glass transition temperature and lower than the melting temperature, manipulating the implantable layer to a second shape different than the first shape, allowing the material to cool below the glass transition temperature, and releasing the implantable layer.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant de modifier une couche implantable à utiliser avec un instrument chirurgical, qui comprend les étapes suivantes : obtention d'une couche implantable constituée au moins partiellement d'un matériau incluant une température de transition vitreuse et une température de fusion, ladite couche implantable incluant une première forme; chauffage du matériau à une température supérieure à la température de transition vitreuse et inférieure à la température de fusion; manipulation de la couche implantable pour former une seconde forme différente de la première forme, permettant au matériau de refroidir en dessous de la température de transition vitreuse; et libération de la couche implantable.
