Abstract

The angular screw driver consists of a tube whose one end (20) is bent and in the inside of which is introduced a cable (4) to which, at the bent end (20) of the tube (2), is provided a bit (21) for engagement into a screw head. The other end (40), has a fitting of a square section which can pass freely through the straight end (22) of the tube. This fitting (41) is inserted into a shell, made up of two assembled parts (30) in which the tube can rotate freely but not the fitting. The latter is held in the cavity (32) of a similar form. This shell (3) is itself fixed to a surrounding handle (10).

Description

La présente invention a pour objet un dispositif de tournevis angulaire permettant le vissage et le dévissage de vis difficilement accessibles, notamment dans le domaine chirurgical. The present invention relates to an angular screwdriver device for screwing and unscrewing screw inaccessible, particularly in the surgical field.

Dans les techniques chirurgicales de pose d'une prothèse, de consolidation par pose d'une plaque d'ostéosynthèse, ou autres techniques, on utilise des vis destinées à être vissées dans la matière osseuse. In the surgical techniques of fitting a prosthesis, consolidation by placing a bone plate, or other techniques, using screw intended to be screwed into the bone material.

De même, notamment dans les techniques de traitement du rachis, certaines pièces métalliques sont solidarisées entre elies au moyen de vls. Similarly, especially in the spine processing techniques, metal parts are secured between elies through vls.

Or, la plupart du temps, selon l appareil à solidariser, les vis sont à implanter selon des axes différents, en sorte que certaines têtes de vis ne sont pas aisément accessibles, car il ne suffit pas d'engager l'outil de vissage dans l'empreinte de la vis, mais il faut également pouvoir appliquer un mouvement de rotation. But most of the time, according to interlock device, the screws are implanted along different axes, so that some screw heads are not easily accessible because it is not enough to engage the screwing tool the recess of the screw, but it must also be able to apply a rotational movement.

Il est ainsi parfois nécessaire de déplacer le patient au cours de l'intervention, ce qui peut avoir de graves conséquences pour lui, notamment, par exemple, dans le cas de la pose d'un implant pour ostéosynthèse rachidienne dorso-lombaire antérieure. Thus it is sometimes necessary to move the patient during surgery, which can have serious consequences for him, including, for example, in the case of an implant for spinal osteosynthesis anterior thoracolumbar.

On connaît déjà des dispositifs de tournevis angulaires ou flexibles destinés à des usages autres que chirurgicaux, mais qui présentent l'inconvénient de ne pas être entièrement démontables aisément en vue d'être nettoyés et stérilisés. Are already known angular screwdriver or flexible devices for uses other than surgery, but have the disadvantage of not being completely dismantled easily in order to be cleaned and sterilized.

La présente invention a pour but de remédier à cet inconvénient en proposant un dispositif de tournevis angulaire qui autorise un accès aisé à des vis difficilement accessibles par des moyens classiques, et qui de plus est facilement et entièrement démontable pour en permettre le nettoyage et la stérilisation en vue de sa réutilisation. The present invention aims to overcome this drawback by proposing an angular screwdriver device that allows easy access to hard to reach screw by conventional means, and more easily and completely removable to allow cleaning and sterilization for reuse.

Le dispositif de tournevis angulaire selon l'invention se caractérise essentieiiement en ce qu'il comprend un tube dont une extrémité est coudée, à l'intérieur duquel est introduit un câble aux extrémités duquel sont sertis d'une part, du coté coudé du tube, un moyen de préhension d'un embout de vissage, et d'autre part, à l'autre extrémité, une garniture de section transversale non ronde susceptible de passer dans ledit tube, et en ce que l'extrémité non coudée dudit tube et ladite garniture sont insérées dans une coque, réalisée en deux parties assemblables, dans laquelle peut tourner librement, axialement, ledit tube mais pas ladite garniture, cette dernière étant maintenue dans une cavité de forme complémentaire, ladite coque étant elle-méme enveloppée d'un manchon qui lui est solidarisable. The angular screwdriver device according to the invention is characterized essentieiiement in that it comprises a tube one end of which is bent, inside which is introduced a cable whose ends are crimped on the one hand, the bent side of the tube a gripping means of a screwdriver bit, and secondly, at the other end a non-round cross section of packing may be passed into said tube, and in that the non-bent end of said tube and said liner are inserted into a shell, made of two parts assembled together, wherein can rotate freely axially, said tube but not said pad, the latter being retained in a cavity of complementary shape, said shell itself being enveloped in a sleeve that is securable to it.

L'utilisation d'un dispositif de tournevis selon l'invention est réalisée de la manière suivante : un embout de vissage est fixé à I'extrémité du tube sur le moyen de blocage, puis cet embout est accouplé à la tête de la vis, tandis que le chirurgien maintient l'embout appliqué contre la vis en tenant le tube d'une main, et de l'autre main fait tourner le manchon, la rotation étant transmise à l'embout, par i'intermédiaire successivement de la coque, de la garniture sertie et du câble The use of a screwdriver device according to the invention is carried out as follows: a screw bit is set at I'extrémité the tube on the locking means and said endpiece is coupled to the head of the screw, while the surgeon keeps the tip pressed against the screw while holding the tube in one hand and the other hand rotates the sleeve, the rotation being transmitted to the tip, by successively i'intermédiaire of the hull, of the crimped seal and the cable
Dans le domaine chirurgical le vissage dans la matière osseuse ne nécessite pas un couple important, ce qui n'est pas le cas du dévissage, en sorte que le câble peut être avantageusement un faisceau de fils torsadés dont le sens de torsion est tel que le dévissage resserre lesdits fils et inversement, le câble faisant ainsi office de limiteur de couple. In the surgical field screwing into the bone tissue does not require a high torque, which is not the case of unscrewing, so that the cable can advantageously be a twisted son beam whose direction of twist is such that the unscrewing tightens said son and vice versa, the cable thereby torque limiter office.

Les avantages et les caractéristiques de la présente invention ressortiront plus clairement de la description qui suit et qui se rapporte au dessin annexé, lequel en représente un mode de réalisation non limitatif. The advantages and features of the present invention will become apparent from the following description which refers to the attached drawing, which shows an embodiment not limiting.

Dans ie dessin annexé Ie in the attached drawing
- la figure 1 représente une vue en plan d'un dispositif selon l'invention. - Figure 1 shows a plan view a device according to the invention.

- la figure 2 représente une vue partielle en coupe longitudinale du même dispositif. - Figure 2 shows a partial longitudinal sectional view of the same device.

- la figure 3 représente une vue partielle en perspective et en éclaté du même dispositif. - Figure 3 shows a partial perspective and exploded view of the same device.

Si on se réfère à la figure 1 on peut voir qu'un dispositif de tournevis selon l lnvention comporte un manche 1 prolonge d'un tube 2 dont la partie extrême 20 opposée à celle solidarisée au manche 1, est coudée et comporte à son extrémité un porte-embout 21 de type connu. Referring to Figure 1 can be seen as a screwdriver device according to the lnvention comprises a handle 1 extends a tube 2, the end portion 20 opposite that secured to the handle 1, is bent and comprises at its end a tip holder 21 of known type.

Si on se réfère maintenant aux figures 2 et 3 on peut voir que le tube 2 renferme un câble 4 dont une extrémité, non visible sur ces figures, est solidarisée au porte-embout 21, l'autre extrémite 40 etant sertie d'une garniture 41 de section transversale carrée et de dimensions permettant son passage à l'intérieur du tube 2. If reference is now made to Figures 2 and 3 it can be seen that the tube 2 contains a wire 4 one end of which, not shown in these figures, is secured to the tip holder 21, the other end 40 being crimped with a gasket 41 of square cross-section and dimensions allowing it to pass inside the tube 2.

Le manche l comprend un manchon 10 renfermant une coque 3 issue du rapprochement de deux demi-coques identiques 30 autour de l'extrémité 22 du tube 2 et de la garniture 41, les demi-coques 30 comportant chacune à cet effet une cavité axiale demi-cylindrique 31 destinée à recevoir l'extrémité 23 du tube 2, et une cavité 32 adaptée à recevoir la garniture 41, les deux cavités 31 et 32 étant reliées par un évidement demi-cylindrique 33 destiné à recevoir le câble 4 pour sa partie débordant de l'extrémité 23 du tube 2, les dimensions de l'évidement 33 ne permettant pas le passage de la garniture 4i. The handle comprises a sleeve 10 enclosing a hull 3 by the merger of two identical half shells 30 around the end 22 of the tube 2 and of the lining 41, the half-shells 30 each having for that purpose an axial cavity half -cylindrique 31 for receiving the end 23 of the tube 2 and a cavity 32 adapted to receive the liner 41, the two cavities 31 and 32 being connected by a semi-cylindrical recess 33 for receiving the cable 4 for its projecting portion the end 23 of the tube 2, the dimensions of the recess 33 does not allow the passage of the liner 4i.

Le manche 1 comporte égaiement une tête 11, solidarisable par vissage au manchon 10, percée axialement d'un trou 12 dans iequel est enfilé et peut tourner librement le tube 2. The handle 1 comprises aIso a head 11, made integral by screwing the sleeve 10 axially pierced by a hole 12 in iequel is threaded and can freely rotate the tube 2.

L'assemblage du manche 1 est complété par le vissage d'au moins une vis 13 solidarisant au moins une demi-coque 30 au manchon 10. The assembly of the handle 1 is completed by screwing at least one screw 13 solidarisant at least one half-shell 30 to the sleeve 10.

Ii est à noter que la solidarisation de la coque 3 au manchon lu peut être réalisée différemment, par exemple au moyen d'une saillie longitudinale ménagée extérieurement sur l'une au moins des aemi-coques 30 et à'au moins une gorge iongitudinaie pratiquée intérieurement au manchon 10. Ii is noted that the attachment of the hull 3 to read sleeve may be made differently, for example by means of a longitudinal protrusion formed outwardly on at least one of shells 30 and AEMI à'au least one groove iongitudinaie practiced internally to the sleeve 10.

Lorsque le manche 1 est assemblé, le tube 2 peut tourner librement dans la tête 11 et dans les cavités 31 des demi-coques 30, par contre la garniture 40 étant emprisonnée dans les cavités 31 des demi-coques 30, dont l une au moins est liée au manchon 10, la rotation du manche 1 sur le tube entraîne la rotation du câble 4 donc du porte-embout 21. When the handle 1 is assembled, the tube 2 can rotate freely in the head 11 and in the cavities 31 of the half shells 30, by against the gasket 40 being trapped in the cavities 31 of the half shells 30, including at least is linked to the sleeve 10, the rotation of the handle 1 to the tube causes rotation of the cable 4 so the bit holder 21.

On comprendra que le démontage s'opère aisément en enlevant la vis 13, puis en dévissant la tête 11 pour libérer les demi-coques 30 du manchon 10, ce qui permet d'extraire le câble 4 du tube 2. It will be appreciated that disassembly is easily effected by removing the screw 13, and then unscrewing the head 11 to release the half-shells 30 of the sleeve 10, which allows to extract the cable 4 of the tube 2.

Il va de soi que la présente invention ne saurait être limitée à la description qui précède d'un de ses modes de réalisation, susceptible de subir un certain nombre de modifications sans pour autant sortir du cadre de l'invention. It goes without saying that this invention is not limited to the above description of one of its embodiments, may undergo a number of modifications without departing from the scope of the invention.
