English term or phrase:cardiovascular fabric
Korte gebruiksaanwijzing op een etiket.
Sulzer Vascutek Cardiovascular Fabric may be briefly immersed in saline prior to implantation to improve handling qualities. This is not required for a prosthesis rinsed in Rifampicin and/or Heparin.
Betekent 'fabric' hier hetzelfde als 'prosthesis'?
Explanation: A prosthesis is any man-made part used to replace a human part (e.g. leg, tooth, eye, etc.) and is therefore much broader than fabric, although it is fair to say that fabrics for use inside the human body are prosthetics. AFAIK, fabric is used to designate a man-made tissue substitute.
Hope this helps.
