Abstract

The anchor has two sections forming a male - female coupling which screws together. The female section (A) is of metal with a diameter the same as that of the screws used in surgery. The female section has longitudinal cut-outs (1) separating blades which are expanded by the male section. The male section is frusto-conical in form. The female section can have irregularities on its surface to encourage bone growth.

Description

DISPOSITIF D'ANCRAGE OSSEUX DES FILS DE FIXATION ANCHORAGE DEVICE BONE FIXING SON
UTILISES EN CHIRURGIE ORTHOPEDIQUE USED ​​IN ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY
Le dispositif vise à assurer un point d'appui fixe aux différents fils métalliques ou autres utilisés en chirurgie osseuse et ostéo-articulaire pour réinsérer capsule, ligaments, tendons et fragments osseux détachés. The device is designed to ensure a fixed support point for different metal or other son used in bone surgery and osteoarticular to reinsert capsule, ligaments, tendons and bone fragments detached. Dans ce dernier cas, le procédé est utilisé pour le traitement des fractures épiphysaires (rotule, olécrane, etc...). In the latter case, the method is used for the treatment of epiphyseal fractures (patella, olecranon, etc ...).

Habituellement, les fils utilisés encerclent le fragment détaché et s'appuient sur la partie osseuse en place, après avoir ménagé un canal transfixiant par forage. Usually, son used encircle the detached fragment and rely on the bone portion in place, after having provided a transfixing channel by drilling. Ce nouveau dispositif remplacerait le forage osseux transfixiant. This new device would replace the transfixing bone drilling.

Le dispositif de base est composé de deux piéces séparées (figure 1) : The basic device consists of two separate pieces (Figure 1):
- La pièce (A) est une pièce métallique en forme de "dé à coudre", creuse, du diamètre habituel des vis utilisées en chirurgie osseuse. - The component (A) is a metal part shaped "thimble", hollow, the usual diameter of the screws used in bone surgery. Elle présente 3 ou 4 fentes (1) dans le sens vertical sur une partie de la longueur de la pièce. It has 3 or 4 slots (1) in the vertical direction over part of the length of the workpiece. Ces fentes séparent donc des lames (2) qui peuvent s'écarter de leur position initiale sans se casser dans les limites de leurs capacités élastiques. These slots thus separate the blades (2) which can deviate from their original position without breaking within their elastic capabilities. La surface extérieure de la pièce (A) est revêtue d'une surface irrégulière (3), de nature variable afin de disposer d'une meilleure adhérence dans le tissu osseux, dans lequel la pièce (A) est introduite. The outer surface of the part (A) is coated with an irregular surface (3) of variable nature in order to have a better grip in the bone tissue, wherein the component (A) is introduced.

La surface intérieure de la pièce (A) est munie d'un filetage (4) pour admettre la pièce (B) par vissage. The inner surface of the workpiece (A) is provided with a thread (4) for admitting the workpiece (B) by screwing.

Le fond de la pièce (A) est perforé d'un orifice (5) pouvant admettre le passage d'un fil dans le sens de sa longueur. The bottom of the piece (A) is perforated with an orifice (5) which admit the passage of a wire in the direction of its length.

- La pièce (B) est la partie male du dispositif. - The part (B) is the male part of the device. C'est une vis en métal ou tout autre matériau, dont la forme est troncônique. Is a metal screw or any other material, whose shape is frustoconical. La partie du côté de la tête (6) est donc de plus grand diamètre que son extrémité (7). The part of the side of the head (6) is of larger diameter than its end (7). La base de la pièce (B) (6) est aussi de diamètre supérieur à l'orifice d'entrée de la pièce (A). The base of the part (B) (6) is also of greater diameter than the room inlet (A). Cette pièce est munie sur sa surface d'un filetage (8). This part is provided on its surface with a thread (8). Ainsi, en introduisant la pièce (B) par vissage dans la partie femelle (A), on crée un écartement des lames (2) de la pièce (A), ce qui assure un ancrage de celle-ci dans le tissu osseux. Thus, by introducing the workpiece (B) by screwing into the female part (A), creates a spacing of the blades (2) of the workpiece (A), which ensures anchoring thereof in the bone tissue.

La pièce (B) est munie d'une tête (9), perforée d'un canal transversal (10) permettant le passage de fils de toute nature et de tout diamètre. The part (B) is provided with a head (9) perforated with a transverse channel (10) for the son of passage of any kind and of any diameter. La pièce (B) est également perforée dans le sens axial par un canal (11), ce qui, grâce à l'orifice (5) de la pièce (A), permet de passer un fil axial à travers les deux pièces (A) et (B) lorsqu'elles sont en place. The part (B) is also perforated in the axial direction by a channel (11), which, through the orifice (5) of the workpiece (A), moves an axial thread through the two parts (A ) and (B) when in place.

La figure 2 montre le dispositif d'ensemble en place avec un fil (12) passé transversalement dans le canal (10) de la tête (9). FIG 2 shows the device set in place with a wire (12) passed transversely into the passage (10) of the head (9). Les figures 3, 4 et 5 montrent les modalités de mise en place du dispositif dans le tissu osseux: dans le premier temps (figure 3), c'est le forage de l'os par une mèche (13) de diamètre légèrement inférieur au diamètre extérieur de la pièce (A). Figures 3, 4 and 5 show the implementation procedures of the device in the bone tissue: In the first step (figure 3), the drilling of the bone by a drill bit (13) of slightly smaller diameter than the outer diameter of the workpiece (A). Cette mèche est munie d'une butée (14) dont la distance de son extrémité est fonction de la longueur de la pièce (A) choisie par le chirurgien. This wick is provided with a stop (14) whose distance from its end is a function of the length of the piece (A) chosen by the surgeon. La figure 4 montre l'introduction de la pièce (A) dans le canal osseux au moyen d'un porte-pièces vissé (15) dans la pièce (A). 4 shows the introduction of the workpiece (A) in the bone canal by means of a screwed workpiece carrier (15) in the part (A). La figure 5 montre enfin le dernier temps de la mise en place du dispositif. Figure 5 finally shows the last time the introduction of the device. C'est le vissage de la pièce (B) dans la pièce femelle (A), grâce à une clé (16). This is the screwing of the part (B) into the female part (A) through a key (16). Par cette manoeuvre, le chirurgien crée l'écartement de la pièce (A) dans le tissu osseux, afin de provoquer l'ancrage osseux souhaité. By this maneuver, the surgeon creates the spacing of the workpiece (A) in the bone tissue in order to cause the desired bone anchor.
