  • Publication number: 20240008970
    Abstract: A mastopexy implant for maintaining the breast in an elevated and aesthetically pleasing position includes a lower pole support comprising end portions which may be affixed to the chest wall or to a previously installed upper suspension strut. The implant is loaded in an insertion device. The insertion device is inserted through a small incision and into a subcutaneous pocket created in an inferior half of the breast. The lower pole support may have various constructs and in one embodiment includes a unitary conformable mesh having a plurality of arm or band members which are attached across the breast parenchyma and to the chest wall.

  • Publication number: 20220362001
    Abstract: Absorbable implants for breast surgery that conform to the breast parenchyma and surrounding chest wall have been developed. These implants support newly lifted breast parenchyma, and/or a breast implant. The implants have mechanical properties sufficient to support a reconstructed breast, and allow the in-growth of tissue into the implant as it degrades. The implants have a strength retention profile allowing the support of the breast to be transitioned from the implant to regenerated host tissue, without significant loss of support. Three-dimensional implants for use in minimally invasive mastopexy/breast reconstruction procedures are also described, that confer shape to a patient's breast. These implants are self-reinforced, can be temporarily deformed, implanted in a suitably dissected tissue plane, and resume their preformed three-dimensional shape. The implants are preferably made from poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB) and copolymers thereof.

  • Publication number: 20210353831
    Abstract: Scaffolding constructs, medical devices comprising scaffolding constructs, and related methods of manufacturing and treatment are described. The scaffolding construct may comprise a biocompatible material, such as a polymer, copolymer, or hydrogel. The scaffolding construct may be porous and at least partially bioresorbable. Further, for example, the scaffolding construct may define a cavity for securing a medical implant therein.

  • Patent number: 10874771
    Abstract: Oriented resorbable implants made from poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB) and copolymers thereof, have been developed that contain one or more antimicrobial agents to prevent colonization of the implants, and reduce or prevent the occurrence of infection following implantation in a patient. These oriented implants are particularly suitable for use in procedures where prolonged strength retention is necessary and there is a risk of infection. Coverings and receptacles made from poly-4-hydroxybutyrate and copolymers thereof, containing antimicrobial agents, have also been developed for use with implantable devices to prevent colonization of these devices, and to reduce or prevent the occurrence of infection following implantation of these devices in a patient. These coverings and receptacles may be used to hold, or partially or fully cover, devices such as pacemakers and neurostimulators.

  • Patent number: 10765500
    Abstract: The present invention relates to medical prostheses and methods of manufacturing those devices. In particular, the prostheses are temporarily stiffened meshes with particular coatings to provide initial stiffness and thereby permit easier surgical handling for treatment or reconstruction of soft tissue defects. Preferred embodiments include surgical meshes coated with one or more biodegradable polymers that can act as a stiffening agent by coating the filaments or fibers of the mesh to temporarily immobilize the contact points of those filaments or fibers and/or by increasing the stiffness of the mesh by at least 1.1 times its original stiffness. The devices of the invention can also provide relief from various post-operative complications associated with their implantation, insertion or surgical use.
