Title (EN) PLIABLE SILK MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL EN SOIE PLIABLE
Abstract:
(EN) An implantable, pliable silk device (e.g., in a form of a knitted mesh) for use in human soft tissue support and/or repair that provides stretch or pliable properties, e.g., multi-directional elongation properties. Such a device permits physicians or users to alter or manipulate the device dimension and/or shape at the time of device implantation, thereby permitting the device to conform to the contour of a target area or tissue more easily and providing more precise positioning of the device over the target area or tissue. In some embodiments, the implantable pliable silk device comprises a knit pattern feature that substantially prevents unraveling and preserves the stability of the mesh when cut. For example, the pliable silk device is a knitted mesh comprising at least two yarns laid in a knit direction and engaging each other to define a plurality of nodes.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif en soie pliable implantable (par exemple, sous forme de maille tricotée) destiné à être utilisé dans la réparation et/ou le soutien de tissu mou humain, ce qui fournit des propriétés d'étirement ou de pliabilité, par exemple, des propriétés d'allongement multidirectionnel. Un tel dispositif permet aux médecins ou utilisateurs de modifier ou manipuler la dimension et/ou forme de dispositif au moment de l'implantation de dispositif, ce qui permet au dispositif de se conformer au contour d'une zone ou d'un tissu cible plus facilement et d'assurer le positionnement plus précis du dispositif sur la zone ou le tissu cible. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le dispositif en soie pliable implantable comprend un élément à motif de tricot qui empêche sensiblement l'effilochage et préserve la stabilité de la maille une fois coupé. Par exemple, le dispositif en soie pliable est une maille tricotée comprenant au moins deux fils disposés dans une direction de tricot et en prise l'un avec l'autre pour définir une pluralité de nœuds.
