  • Publication number: 20100175850
    Abstract: Caps having porous elements that act as a vent to facilitate cooling of hot fluids stored in containers. Certain embodiments comprise a cap that may be affixed to a container filled with a hot fluid. The cap may include a porous element that allows air to enter the container during the cooling process, but also prevents the introduction of microbes and bacteria into the container. The cap may include a through hole, chamber, or recessed area to receive and secure the porous element. In certain embodiments the porous element may comprise a sintered composite material with thermoplastic particles and either metal particles and/or metal powder. In other embodiments, the porous element may comprise a layered structure. The layers may include a combination of the sintered composite material, a metallic layer, or various porous layers.

  • Patent number: 5545226
    Abstract: A implant for cranioplasty made of porous high density polyethylene is provided. The implant has a smooth upper surface and a lower surface characterized by a plurality of conical extensions. The implant is flexible so that it can conform to the contour of the cranium and can be cut with a scalpel or surgical scissors or bone cutters. The shape of the implant allows a surgeon to easily adapt the implant to fit into cranial defects such as those caused by harvesting bone grafts.
