  • Patent number: 10086369
    Abstract: The present invention concerns a sterile closed loop device for medical-surgical use intended for the collection, the transportation and the processing of prostheses and/or biological samples and the like, having at least one collection compartment provided with an hermetically closable main opening, for the introduction of said prosthesis and/or biological samples and the like to be analyzed, so as to be contained in it, at least one containment chamber, in which a solution is contained for the chemical detachment of bacteria adhering to animate or inanimate surfaces, such as prostheses and the like, and/or bacterial biofilm, said containment chamber being selectively communicating with said collection compartment, so that said solution can be conveyed from said containment chamber to said collection compartment, for the chemical separation of bacteria to said prosthesis and/or biological samples and the like to be analyzed, that can be inserted in said collection compartment, and extraction means of said so

  • Publication number: 20170072098
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an implantable paste comprising bioactive glass powder having a size distribution of 0.5-45 ?m, bioactive glass granules having a size distribution between 100 and 4000 ?m, low molecular weight polyethylene glycol having a molecular weight range of 200-700 g/mol, medium molecular weight polyethylene glycol having a molecular weight range of 700-2500 g/mol, high molecular weight polyethylene glycol having a molecular weight range of 2500-8000 g/mol and glycerol. The composition of the bioactive glass is 45-55 weight-% of SiO2, 20-25 weight-% of Na2O, 18-25 weight-% of CaO and 3-6 weight-% of P2O5, and the molecular weight of the low molecular weight polyethylene glycol and of the medium molecular weight polyethylene glycol differ from each other by at least 80 g/mol and that the molecular weight of the medium molecular weight polyethylene glycol and of the high molecular weight polyethylene glycol differ from each other by at least 300 g/mol.

  • Patent number: 9283283
    Abstract: The present invention relates to hydrogels based on hyaluronic acid based derivatives, that are more resistant than hyaluronic acid alone towards chemical and enzymatic degradation and are endowed with a mix of chemical and mechanical properties such that they are of optimal use in several surgeries, for instance for injection in bone fractures or cavities and for the production of coatings of prostheses in orthopedic surgery, as fillers in cosmetic and maxillo-facial surgery, as anti-adhesion barrier in the prevention of postoperative adhesions in abdominal and abdominal/pelvic surgery, and in general surgery. These hydrogels can be loaded with several different kinds of compounds having pharmacological and biological activity, that are then released from the hydrogel in the site of intervention.

  • Patent number: 8529935
    Abstract: The present invention relates to hydrogels endowed with antibacterial properties, to be used for injection in damaged bones or in the production of antibacterial coatings of prostheses for implant in the human or animal body, obtained by loading with antibacterial agents hydrogels formed by derivatives of hyaluronic acid; the invention also relates to a kit of parts for producing the antibacterial hydrogels.
