  • Patent number: 8789535
    Abstract: A device for preventing development of infections includes a surgical drape in which a window, through which an incision may be made, is formed. The window defines borders having an inner face; a first layer of a material, covering the inner face of the borders, the first layer being configured to absorb incision secretions; and a second layer, covering the inner face of the borders, the second layer being impregnated with an antiseptic haemostatic ingredient, the second layer partially covering the first layer, the first layer being wider than the second layer. The second layer is arranged to come into contact with incision margins and cover a top part and a bottom part of an incision during installation of a spacer.

  • Publication number: 20110197897
    Abstract: The invention relates to an antibacterial agent comprising, as active product, a haemostatic contact tissue with an acid pH combined with povidone iodine, the haemostatic contact tissue being regenerated or non-regenerated oxidized cellulose. It also relates to a device used for active protection of incision margins and incorporating such an antibacterial agent. The applicant has now demonstrated surprisingly that the combination of regenerated or non-regenerated oxidized cellulose with povidone iodine provided a degree of bacterial inhibition superior to simple use of regenerated or non-regenerated oxidized cellulose on its own or of povidone iodine on its own. This therefore represents a synergistic effect, which yields a novel agent that is both a very powerful haemostatic and also very powerful antibacterial substance.

  • Patent number: 6023630
    Abstract: A probe assembly includes at least two electrodes for measuring a potential difference between two measurement sites of a tissue of a human or animal organ and at least one sensor for measuring the tissue temperature. The probe assembly further includes a common support on which are placed the electrodes and the sensor. The support comprises conductors for linking the electrodes and the sensor to a signal processing unit with a view to calculating the tissue pH of the organ.

  • Patent number: 5476763
    Abstract: A transport assembly which is particularly suitable for transporting medical material, particularly organs and tissues. The assembly includes a tissue container which includes a lid having a clamping assembly associated therewith for clamping an organ. In addition, a reservoir bag and collector bag are respectively connected to the tissue container, such that a physiological fluid can be pumped from the reservoir bag to the tissue container, and with fluid exiting the tissue container gathered in the collector bag. A support holder is also provided, and the support holder, tissue container, collector bag, and reservoir bag can be detachably placed in a box for transport.
