Method of individual manufacture of exoprothesis of a nipple-areolar complex

FIELD: medicine.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to medical prostheses and can be used to compensate for tissue deficiency in the region of the remote nipple-areolar complex (NAC) in patients who underwent surgery for the mammary gland. Method includes manufacturing of NAC from silicone. Before the operation to remove the mammary gland, a color scale in tone with the NAC is selected for the patient, a NAC cast is made, the cast is removed and, after complete drying, a two-component soft silicon on a platinum base is poured into its cavity step by step. At the first stage, the nipple cavity is cast and colored in a selected tone. On the second stage, the areolar cavity is filled and colored. Silicone filled mold is dried at room temperature for 30 minutes. Before fixing to the skin, the fixing side of the NAC exoprosthesis is covered with latex and silicone glue.

EFFECT: invention makes it possible to provide a long fixation of the prosthesis to the body and to improve the quality of life of the patient.

SUBSTANCE: invention refers to medicine. What is described is a sterile dehydrated cell-free implant which when rehydrated by water or body fluids is exposed to anisotropic expansion, and can be used as a substrate for living cell adhesion, migration and growth. Collagen structures of a transplant are at least partially denatured after exposure to heat or organic solvents, such as lower aliphatic alcohols and ketones which are simultaneously preserving and sterilising agents, especially with respect to specific types of viruses. The implant is sterilised by radiation, preferentially by accelerated electrons, practically in the dehydrated condition. The transplant can be produced of various animal tissues, especially of mammalian tissues, such as human or swine tissues. Tissues suitable for the prevent invention can represent, e.g. skin, placenta, pericardium, peritoneum, intestinal wall, tendon, blood vessel, etc.

EFFECT: dehydrated implant is suitable as a temporary coating for a wound or a burn, for recovery, replacement and regeneration of tissues, and also as a substrate for cell cultivation in the laboratory conditions, and easier to flex, and being less fragile.

SUBSTANCE: group of inventions refers to medicine and concerns methods for creation a tooth of a required size, and repair of the lost teeth in the oral cavity by transplantation of the created tooth into the dental loss. Particularly, the method for the tooth creation of a required length in one direction involves the stages: placing the first cell aggregate and the second cell aggregate in a tight contact inside a supporting carrier, wherein the first cell aggregate and the second cell aggregate respectively consists of mesenchymal or epithelial cells; culturing the first and second cell aggregate inside the supporting carrier; the tooth size is corrected by a contact length of the first cell aggregate and the second cell aggregate in the same pre-set direction. A method for determining the contact length of the first and second cell aggregate for the tooth preparation of the required size involves preparing a number of structural types containing structures of various contact length of the first and second cell aggregate in the same pre-set direction; culturing each of a number of structural types inside the supporting carrier; measuring the tooth length prepared at the previous stage in one direction; correlating the given length and contact length providing the basis for calculating the required contact length of the first cell aggregate and the second cell aggregate.
