List of Patents
The present invention is aimed at solving the problems presented by the current tracheal patches, allowing the obtaining of personalised biopolymer patches for the treatment of tracheal stenosis. More specifically, the invention seeks to solve the problem of severe reduction of the tracheal lumen (subglottic stenosis) by means of the grafting of biocompatible and absorbable materials as a substitute for the current grafting of costal cartilage (the most common procedure that involves a double intervention on the patient to remove said cartilage).
The object of the invention lies both in the formulation of the materials so that they can be printed by 3D printing, for example with fused deposition modelling (FDM) technology, and in the design of the patch, which is adapted both to the treatment of tracheal stenosis and to the Monnier surgical technique.
The product, co-owned by IIS La Fe and the Instituto Tecnológico del Plástico AIMPLAS, has been registered as National Patent P202131165, with an application date of 15 December 2021.
Patent title: Biopolymer implants printed by additive manufacturing for treatment of tracheal stenosis.
