20090105545Apparatus and method for facilitating the implantation of a medical device - An apparatus and method for facilitating the implantation of a medical device through an incision so as to promote soft tissue ingrowth into a biocompatible porous layer, e. g, titanium, carried on the periphery of the medical device. The method utilizes an incision (either percutaneous or subcutaneous) which is intentionally undersized by 10-20% relative to the width dimension of the porous layer. Accordingly, a physician must stretch the surrounding tissue to maximize the size of the opening to insert the device. Because the opening is undersized relative to the porous layer, the surrounding tissue remains physically stressed, i.e., radially and/or circumferentially, and acts to enhance cell proliferation and healing. A surgical cutting tool is preferably provided to assist the physician to form a properly dimensioned opening.04-23-2009
