Abstract

It comprises means for passing through and immobilising a strap (2b) with at least one cushion (2a) of an interspinal prosthesis (2) after fitting of the latter between the spinal apophyses (1b) of two neighbouring vertebrae (1a) of a vertebral column (1). <IMAGE>

Description

La présente invention a trait à une agrafe qui permet la mise en place et la retenue des prothèses inter-épineuses entre les apophyses épineuses de deux vertèbres voisines d'une colonne vertébrale. The present invention relates to a clip which allows the establishment and retention of the interspinous prostheses between the spinous processes of two adjacent vertebrae of a spinal column.

Ce genre de prothèse est prévue lorsque le ligament inter-épineux est défectueux, lors de l'apparition d'une hernie discale, dans le traitement chirurgicaL d'une sténose du canal lombaire, et quelquefois dans le traitement des instabilités vertébrales. This kind of prosthesis is expected when the interspinous ligament is defective upon the occurrence of a herniated disc, in the surgical treatment of lumbar canal stenosis, and sometimes in the treatment of spinal instabilities.

De telles prothèses comprennent à la manière connue un ou plusieurs coussinets semi-élastiques maintenus par l'intermédiaire d'un lacet qui entoure les apophyses épineuses de deux vertèbres voisines. Such prostheses include in known manner one or more semi-elastic bearings held by means of a lace around the spinous processes of two adjacent vertebrae.

Ces prothèses comportent certains inconvénients en ce qui concerne la fixation du lacet avec le ou les coussinets. These prostheses have certain drawbacks regarding the fixing of lace with or pads. En effet, la fixation est réalisée au moyen d'un fil non résorbable à qui on fait traverser au moyen d'une aiguille le lacet et le ou les coussinets pour former un point de suture en X. Cette opération est très difficile à réaliser du fait de l'épaisseur et de la résistance du lacet et du ou des coussinets, ce qui entraîne une suture lente car plusieurs points de suture en Indeed, the attachment is made by means of a non-absorbable thread which is passed through by a needle or yaw and bushings to form a stitch in X. This operation is very difficult to achieve due to the thickness and resistance of the lace and or pads, which results in slow as several suture stitches in
X doivent être effectués. X must be performed.

C'est à ces inconvénients qu'entend plus spécialement remédier la présente invention It is these drawbacks especially remedy the present invention
L'agrafe suivant la présente invention comprend des moyens pour traverser et immobiliser Le Lacet avec le ou les coussinets après la mise en place de la prothèse entre Les apophyses épineuses de deux vertèbres voisines d'une coLonne vertébraLe. The clip according to the present invention comprises means to pass through and secure the cord with the pads or after the introduction of the prosthesis between the spinous processes of two adjacent vertebrae of a spinal column.

Les moyens consistent en The means consist
- un premier élément en forme de rondelle dont L'une de ses faces est solidaire d'au moins deux picots diamétralement opposés, tandis qu'il est percé d'une Lumière oblongue comportant dans son fond deux lames élastiques, et de deux trous débouchants qui sont disposés de part et d'autre et perpendiculairement à l'axe principal de ladite lumière ; - a first shaped member ring including the one of its faces is integral with at least two diametrically opposite pins, while being pierced with an oblong slot having in its bottom two elastic strips and two through holes which are arranged on either side and perpendicularly to the main axis of said light;
- un second élément en forme d'aiguille crantée qui est solidaire à L'une de ses extrémités d'une tête qui comprend deux trous débouchants et deux picots. - a second toothed needle shaped member which is secured at one of its ends with a head that includes two holes and two pins.

Le dessin annexé, donné à titre d'exemple, permettra de mieux comprendre L'invention, les caractéristiques qu'elle présente et les avantages qu'elle est susceptible de procurer The accompanying drawing, given by way of example, will better understand the invention, its characteristics and the benefits it can provide

Fig. Fig. 3 est une coupe représentant en détail l'agrafe mise en place sur une prothèse inter-épineuse. 3 is a detailed section showing the clip in place on an interspinous implant.

On a représenté en fig. There is shown in Fig. 1 une partie d'une colonne vertébraLe 1 comprenant des vertèbres la dont deux sont réunies par l'intermédiaire d'une prothèse inter-épineuse 2 connue en soi, afin de réaliser un soulagement des étages vertébraux endommagés. 1 a portion of a spinal column 1 with the two vertebrae which are joined by means of an interspinous prosthesis 2 known per se, in order to achieve a relief of the damaged vertebral stages. La prothèse 2 est verrouillée au moyen d'une agrafe 3 suivant L'invention. The prosthesis 2 is locked by means of a following clip 3 of the invention.

La prothèse inter-épineuse 2 comprend au moins un coussinet élastique 2a comportant dans son épaisseur un certain nombre de fentes débouchantes non représentées pour le passage d'un lacet 2b qui est réalisé en fibre élastique. The interspinous prosthesis 2 comprises at least a resilient pad 2a having in its thickness a number of not shown through slots for the passage of a lace 2b which is made of elastic fiber. Le coussinet 2a est inséré entre les apophyses épineuses lb de deux vertèbres voisines la, tandis que le lacet 2b traverse plusieurs fois les fentes dudit coussinet pour venir prendre appui autour de chacune desdites apophyses. 2a the bearing bush is inserted between the spinous processes of two adjacent vertebrae lb la, while the yaw 2b crosses several time slots of said pad to come to bear around each of said processes. Le lacet et le coussinet sont retenus au moyen de l'agrafe 3 qui les traverse de part en part. Yaw and pad are retained by means of the staple 3 which crosses from one side.

L'agrafe 3 représentée en fig. The clip 3 shown in Fig. 2 et 3 comprend un premier élément 3a en forme de rondelLe. 2 and 3 includes a first element 3a-shaped washer. L'élément 3a comporte sur L'une de ses faces au moins deux picots 3b et 3c qui sont diamétralement opposés. The element 3a comprises on one of its faces at least two pins 3b and 3c which are diametrically opposed. L'élément 3a est percé d'une lumière oblongue 3d dont le fond comporte deux lames élastiques et opposées 3e et 3f. The element 3a is pierced with an oblong slot 3d whose bottom comprises two elastic strips and opposite 3e and 3f. Les lames 3e et 3f sont indépendantes L'une de l'autre et déterminent en leur milieu un espace libre 3g qui est co-axial à L'axe central de L'élément 3a. 3e and 3f blades are independent of one another and determine in the middle a gap 3g which is co-axial to the central axis of the element 3a.

De chaque côté de la lumière 3d et perpendiculairement à son axe principal est percée une encoche traversante 3h tronconique évasée à l'opposé des picots. On each side of the light 3d and perpendicular to its main axis is drilled a through notch 3h frustoconical flared opposite spikes. Les encoches 3h débouchent dans la lumière 3d de manière que les lames 3f et 3e soient Libres de se déplacer angulairement. The notches 3h open in the 3D light so that the 3f and third blades are free to move angularly.

L'agrafe 3 comprend un second élément 3g en forme d'aiguille 3i qui est solidaire à l'aide de ses extrémités d'une tête 3i L'aiguille 3i se présente sous la forme d'une tige lisse dont L'extrémité libre se trouvant à L'opposé de la tête 3i est prolongée par des crans 3k à profil cylindro-conique et une pointe conique de perforation 31. La tête 3i comprend de part et d'autre de l'aiguille 3i des trous 3m à profil tronconique tandis que perpendiculairement à l'axe de ces trous sont prévus au moins deux picots 3n et 3e. The clip 3 comprises a second member 3g shaped 3i needle which is integral with its ends with a head 3i 3i The needle is in the form of a smooth rod whose free end lying opposite the head is extended by 3i notches 3k cylindro-conical shape and a conical piercing tip 31. 3i head comprises on either side of the needle holes 3i 3m frustoconical profile while than perpendicular to the axis of these holes are provided at least two pins and third 3n.

En fig. In Fig. 3, on a représenté L'agrafe 3 mise en place au travers de la prothèse inter-épineuse 2 à L'aide d'une pince non représentée. 3, there is shown the staple 3 establishment through the interspinous prosthesis 2 with the aid of a not shown clamp. Les becs de La pince coopèrent respectivement avec les encoches 3h du premier élément 3a et les trous 3m de la tête 3i du second élément 39 de manière que Les picots 3b, 3c et 3n, 3e soient décalés angulairement de 900. The spouts of the clamp co-operate respectively with the slots 3 in the first element 3a and holes 3m 3i head of the second member 39 so that the pins 3b, 3c and 3n, 3e are angularly offset by 900.

L'opérateur exerce un effort de serrage sur la pince de manière que The operator exerts a clamping force on the clamp so that
L'aiguille 3i transperce à L'aide de sa pointe 3l le coussinet 2a et le lacet 2b de la prothèse inter-épineuse et vienne entre les lames 3f, 3e dans l'espace 39. Les crans 3k coopèrent ensuite avec les lames élastiques 3f et 3e pour permettre la retenue de l'aiguille 3i et la solidarisation du coussinet 2a avec le lacet 2b The needle pierces 3i with its tip 3l the pad 2a and the yaw 2b of the interspinous prosthesis and comes between the blades 3f, 3e in the space 39. The notches 3k then cooperate with the resilient blades 3f and third to allow retention of the needle 3i and the attachment of the pad 2a with lace 2b
L'opérateur peut ensuite pour plus de sécurité couper la pointe conique 31 afin que ceLle-ci ne forme pas un élément dangereux dans les parties vitales. The operator may then for safety cut the conical tip 31 so that it will not form a dangerous element in vital parts.

On remarque que les picots 3b, 3c de l'élément 3a et 3n, 3p de la tête 3i de L'élément 39 pénètrent à l'intérieur du coussinet 2a afin de maintenir angulairement l'agrafe 3 à l'intérieur de la prothèse interépineuse 2. It is noted that the pins 3b, 3c of the element 3a and 3n, 3p 3i head element 39 penetrate inside the bushing 2a to angularly maintain the clip 3 into the interspinous prosthesis 2.

il doit d'ailleurs être entendu que la description qui précède n'a été donnée qu'à titre d'exemple et qu'elle ne limite nullement le domaine de L'invention dont on ne sortirait pas en remplaçant Les détails d'exécution décrits par tous autres équivalents. it should also be understood that the above description has been given as an example and does not limit the field of the invention which is not exceeded by replacing the execution details described by any other equivalents.
