Title (EN) APPARATUSES AND METHODS FOR IMPROVING POST-OPERATIVE RECOVERY FROM SURGERY
(FR) APPAREILS ET PROCÉDÉS POUR AMÉLIORER LA RÉCUPÉRATION POST-OPÉRATOIRE APRÈS UNE INTERVENTION CHIRURGICALE
Abstract:
(EN) This disclosure relates to apparatuses and methods for preventing the onset and progression of POI. In one example, a fan-like polyurethane heat-sealed bilayer that surrounds a plurality of wedge-shaped foam strips that join at a collecting foam portion, is subjected to negative pressure provided through silicone tubing which is sealed to the perforated collecting foam portion. Such negative pressure applied for approximately 48 to 72 hours after closure of the abdomen, helps prevent POI which in turn enhances patient recovery, and reduces the length of their hospital stay.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des appareils et des procédés destinés à prévenir l'apparition et la progression de l'iléus post-opératoire (POI). Dans un exemple, une bicouche de polyuréthane thermoscellée de type éventail qui entoure une pluralité de bandes de mousse en forme de coin se rejoignant au niveau d'une partie collectrice de mousse, est soumise à une pression négative fournie à travers un tubage de silicone qui est scellé à la partie collectrice de mousse perforée. Une telle pression négative, appliquée pendant approximativement 48 à 72 heures après fermeture de l'abdomen, permet de prévenir le POI, ce qui permet d'améliorer la récupération du patient et réduit la longueur de son séjour à l'hôpital.
