Breast Implants, Gel-Filled definition: Breast implants that are prefilled with silicone gel. These implants typically consist of an outer shell (e.g., silicone elastomer) that may include a single or double (i.e., one shell inside the outer shell) lumen, silicone gel filler, and a patch to seal the shell once filled. Single-lumen implants are prefilled with a fixed volume of gel in the manufacturing process. Double-lumen implants have an inner lumen prefilled with silicone gel and an outer lumen ready for filling with saline during surgical implantation or vice versa; some implants may allow adjustment of the saline content after implantation. Silicone gel breast implants are intended for breast reconstruction and/or augmentation.
RING, TEETHING, FLUID-FILLED definition: A teething ring is a divice intended for use by infants for medical purposes to soothe gums during the teething process.
RING, TEETHING, NON-FLUID FILLED definition: A teething ring is a divice intended for use by infants for medical purposes to soothe gums during the teething process.
Fill definition: Execute or satisfy a request or order; supply or furnish.
CAPSULE, LIQUID FILLED definition: "A solid dosage form in which the drug is enclosed within a soluble, gelatin shell which is plasticized by the addition of a polyol, such as sorbitol or glycerin, and is therefore of a somewhat thicker consistency than that of a hard shell capsule; typically, the active ingredients are dissolved or suspended in a liquid vehicle. (NCI)"
Liquid Filled Capsule Dosage Form definition: A solid dosage form in which the drug is enclosed within a soluble, gelatin shell which is plasticized by the addition of a polyol, such as sorbitol or glycerin, and is therefore of a somewhat thicker consistency than that of a hard shell capsule; typically, the active ingredients are dissolved or suspended in a liquid vehicle.
Bougies, Esophagus, Mercury-Filled definition: Esophageal bougies filled with mercury (a metal that is liquid at room temperature) that are designed to dilate a narrowed area in the esophagus. These bougies are typically strong-walled rubber or latex tubes filled with mercury to provide a flexible weight, either with a round, blunt tip (Hurst type) or a fine tip tapered to full diameter over several centimeters from the tip (Maloney type). Mercury-filled esophageal bougies are available in sets that include bougies with a variety of diameters; they are intended to treat cardiospasm, esophagitis, and stenosis.
Bougies, Esophagus, Tungsten-Filled definition: Esophageal bougies filled with tungsten (a metal that is solid at room temperature) that are designed to dilate a narrowed area in the esophagus. These bougies are typically strong-walled polyvinyl chloride or silicone tubes filled with tungsten powder suspended in a gel to provide weight, either with a round, blunt tip (Hurst type) or a fine tip tapered to full diameter over several centimeters from the tip (Maloney type). They are used with the same techniques as mercury-filled bougies. Tungsten-filled esophageal bougies are available in sets that include bougies with a variety of diameters; they are intended to treat cardiospasm, esophagitis, and stenosis. Tungsten-filled bougies (i.e., mercury-free bougies) are used as an alternative to mercury-filled bougies to avoid the hazards of mercury manipulation.
Breast Implants, Saline-Filled definition: Breast implants that are either prefilled or filled during surgery with saline solution. These implants typically consist of a single-lumen outer shell (e.g., silicone elastomer), saline solution as filler, and a patch to seal the shell once filled. The implants may be either prefilled or filled during surgery through a valve with a fixed volume of saline; some implants that are filled during surgery may allow adjustment of the saline content after implantation. Saline breast implants are intended for breast reconstruction and/or augmentation.
Testicle Implants, Saline-Filled definition: Testicle implants that are prefilled or filled during surgery with saline solution. These implants typically consist of a single-lumen outer shell (e.g., silicone elastomer), saline solution filler, a self-sealing injection port, and a tab to secure the implant in a fixed position. The implants may be either prefilled or filled during surgery through a valve with a fixed volume of saline; some implants may allow saline content adjustment after implantation. Saline-filled testicular implants are available in a variety of sizes; they are used to provide or restore normal physical appearance (i.e., for cosmetic reasons) in patients with loss (e.g., trauma, illness) or absence of one or both testicles; they are not intended for functional replacement of the testicles.
