Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR CORNEAL TRANSPLANTS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR TRANSPLANTS CORNÉENS
Abstract:
(EN) Corneal transplant procedures may involve suturing an implant of healthy corneal tissue to a recipient cornea. The sutures may cause unwanted deformation of the corneal implant and the recipient cornea. A supporting structure may be embedded into the corneal implant to enhance the stability of the corneal implant and the recipient cornea and to reduce the likelihood of unwanted deformation when the corneal implant is sutured to the recipient cornea. According to one embodiment, a corneal implant includes donor corneal tissue extracted from a donor cornea. The donor corneal tissue includes an interior channel formed at a depth below an anterior surface. The corneal implant includes a supporting structure formed from non-tissue material and positioned in the channel.
(FR) Les procédures de greffe cornéenne peuvent impliquer la suture d'un implant de tissu cornéen sain à une cornée de receveur. Les sutures peuvent provoquer une déformation indésirable de l'implant cornéen et de la cornée du receveur. La présente invention concerne une structure de support pouvant être incorporée dans l'implant cornéen pour améliorer la stabilité de l'implant cornéen et de la cornée du receveur et pour réduire la probabilité de déformation indésirable lorsque l'implant cornéen est suturé à la cornée du receveur. Selon un mode de réalisation, un implant cornéen comprend un tissu cornéen de donneur extrait d'une cornée de donneur. Le tissu cornéen de donneur comprend un canal intérieur formé à une certaine profondeur au-dessous d'une surface antérieure. L'implant cornéen comprend une structure de support formée à partir d'un matériau non tissulaire et positionnée dans le canal.
