  • Patent number: 5571182
    Abstract: An improved micro-implantation method and composition for filling depressed scars, unsymmetrical orbital floors, muscle, lip, and other soft tissue defects is provided for use in reconstructive surgery procedures. Textured micro particles having an outside diameter between about 30 microns and 3000 microns are used with an appropriate physiologic vehicle cannula and syringe and/or pressure delivery system into a predetermined locus. The particles provide long-term filling of defects without migration loss.

  • Patent number: 5087248
    Abstract: An adhesive patch for anchoring an intravenous needle to the skin of a patient at the transcutaneous insertion site is disclosed in which a patch of continuous flexible asymmetrically elastic sheet material having one side covered with a layer of biocompatible adhesive is provided substantially shaped as large and small abutting parallel rectangles integrally joined parallel to the easy axis of elasticity and adapted to engage an intravenous needle. The small rectangle is configured such that a portion can disengage from the larger rectangle and fold on itself as a tab and adhesively engage the periphery of the hub of the needle and wherein the larger rectangle has a central shaped cut out facing the small rectangle and is adapted to fold over the tab and adhesively attach to the skin thereby attaching the entire assembly to the skin. A layer of peelable release paper adhering to said adhesive is provided for packaging.

  • Patent number: 5067965
    Abstract: An improved bio-osmotic gel for filling implant lumens consisting substantially of an amount of a bio-compatible organic polymer and a solution of bio-compatible salt is disclosed which exhibits osmotic qualitites closely paralleling that of human body serum and improved radiolucency with respect to silicone oil and saline. The bio-osmotic gel can contain a polymer having the empirical formula [(CHCH.sub.2).sub.2 N(CH.sub.2).sub.3 CO].sub.n i.e. polyvinylpyrrollidone. The bio-compatible salt can be made of a low Z value salt such as sodium bicarbonate, sodium acetate, or sodium lactate. The gel material should have an osmolarity between 250 and 350 milliosmoles and have an X-ray absorption under standard exposure approximately equal to that of breast tissue such that processed mammographic X-ray film will have an optical density of 1.2 to 1.3 and an average penetrance of between 9.2 and 30.0 milliroentgens.

  • Patent number: 4955909
    Abstract: Capsular contracture causing firmness of soft silicone implants is a serious problem that may result from several causative factors that have as their final pathway, the development of increased scar tissue. The present invention has altered the formation of this scar encapsulation of silicone implants by texturing the silicone surface in order to gain fibroblast ingrowth into the interstices and thus prevent micromotion at the host prosthesis interface. It has been found that this produces a thinner fibrous capsule. Previously published work pertaining to animals and man has shown that similar texturing of tetrafluoroethylene (Teflon) and other substances achieves these goals. In accordance with work leading up to the present invention, textured silicone samples have been implanted in the subcutaneous layer of rabbits, the capsule formation and the host-prosthesis interface studied histologically.

  • Patent number: 4596250
    Abstract: A temperature control device containing a mixture of de-ionized water, propylene glycol, polysaccharides and plant gum for providing a moldable pillow-like surface for cooling/heating and positioning body organs or parts. A multi-layered container including an insulator, a radiant heat reflecting layer and a liquid impermeable outer layer permit autoclaving and provide directional cooling/heating. The inclusion of appropriate phase change chemicals or reciprocal ion-type chemicals or metal particles facilitate the stabilization of temperature over a predetermined temperature range.
