"Flight by machines heavier than air is unpractical and insignificant, if not utterly impossible."
|7909886||Tissue repair fabric|
This invention is directed to prosthesis, which, when implanted into a mammalian patient, serves as a functioning replacement for a body part, or tissue structure, and will undergo controlled biodegradation occurring concomitantly with bioremodeling by the patient's...
|7906322||Method and apparatus for inducing controlled mechanical constraints in a tissue construct|
A method and a device (10) for reorganizing the fibers of a matrix in a living tissue sheet (S) by inducing controlled mechanical constraints in the living tissue (S) sheet thus causing the fibers of the matrix to be aligned parallel to the strain orientation...
|7824913||Bioengineered tissue constructs and methods for producing and using thereof|
Cultured tissue constructs comprising cultured cells and endogenously produced extracellular matrix components without the requirement of exogenous matrix components or network support or scaffold members. Some tissue constructs of the invention are comprised of mul...
|7615373||Electroprocessed collagen and tissue engineering|
The invention is directed to formation and use of electroprocessed collagen, including use as an extracellular matrix and, together with cells, its use in forming engineered tissue. The engineered tissue can include the synthetic manufacture of specific organs or ti...
|7597712||Method for treating a patient using a cultured connective tissue construct|
The invention is directed to a method of tissue replacement and repair using a cultured bioremodelable connective tissue construct. The invention is specifically directed to a method for repairing annulus fibrosis of the intervertebral disc, after discectomy surgery...
|7521231||Method for preparing engineered tissue|
A method for preparing a human or animal tissue by applying a compressive force to a stack of sheets of living tissue thereby inducing adjacent layers to fuse or adhere to each other. The force is applied in direction normal to the surface of the tissue. A multi-lay...
