(FR) EXTENSEURS DE TISSU, LEURS PROCÉDÉS DE FABRICATION ET MOULES ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Tissue expanders and methods of their manufacture and use are disclosed herein. A tissue expander shell according to the present disclosure may include a shape and topography that facilitates uniform or substantially uniform expansion and contraction of the tissue expander. In at least one example, the shell may include a series of topographical features, such as ridges, grooves, channels, valleys, canals, protrusions, pleats, creases, or folds. In some embodiments, these features may have a curved or wavy cross sectional profile. For example, the shell may include a series of concentric curved ridges.
(FR) L'invention concerne des extenseurs de tissu et leurs procédés de fabrication et d'utilisation. Une coque d'extenseur de tissu selon la présente invention peut présenter une forme et une topographie qui facilitent l'expansion et la contraction uniformes ou sensiblement uniformes de l'extenseur de tissu. Dans au moins un exemple, la coque peut comprendre une série de caractéristiques topographiques, telles que des crêtes, des rainures, des chenaux, des vallées, des canaux, des saillies, des pliures, des rides ou des plis. Dans certains modes de réalisation, ces caractéristiques peuvent présenter un profil en coupe transversale incurvé ou ondulé. Par exemple, la coque peut comprendre une série de crêtes incurvées concentriques.
