    Research output: Patent


    A biocompatible and biodegradable medical device patch actuating primarily as soft tissue structural reinforcement. The device has a layered architecture, where the primary serves as suturing layer and mechanical support to a thick porous scaffold which can be coated with a mimic-like extra cellular matrix (ECM). The device can be provided to the end user under the format of independent layers that can be cut and assembled to the specific need to the end user and patient. The layers are assembled without the need of any adhesive. Totally haemocompatible and of behavior superior to polytetrafluoroethylene used for any soft tissue repaired, the field of this invention is demonstrated for cardiovascular therapy but should not be limited to it. It is of practical relevance of vein, tendon and hernias and dermal treatments.
