Abstract

The invention relates to a device for reducing vertebral fractures, comprising at least one pair of attachment elements intended to be fixed in healthy vertebrae upstream and downstream of the fractured vertebrae or elements. rod-shaped connection means being provided for connecting at least two fastening elements to each other. Each of the attachment elements (1) has a location (2) for receiving a cylindrical element (3) adapted to receive at least one of said shaft-shaped elements (10) for connecting at least two fastening elements between them. </ P>

Description

The present disclosure relates to a vertebral fracture reduction device having improved functionality.

As is known, vertebral fixation systems placed upstream and downstream of the vertebra affected by the fracture are used for the reduction of vertebral fractures, and these fixation systems comprise screws which are screwed into the healthy vertebrae. and are interconnected by shaft-shaped members clamped between the neck of the screw and the head of the screw itself, so as to compress the fractured vertebra.

However, it happens that, considering the high rigidity of the fastening systems described above, the vertebra concerned by the fracture, which is between the two fastening screws screwed into the healthy vertebrae, proves to be substantially free, because compression exerts only on the vertebrae on which are inserted the screws to which are then connected the elements in the form of shaft.

Thus, it happens that the vertebra which is to be wound is not directly solicited and the healing of the fracture proves to be difficult, the vertebra may be affected by bone resorption.

Fastening systems of known type have the disadvantage of being of great rigidity but also somewhat bulky. This disadvantage is serious because spaces available laterally in relation to the vertebral column, for the reduction of vertebral fractures, are reduced and having fastening systems whose transverse bulk is important does not facilitate not the work of the surgeon who has to hang these fasteners to the vertebrae.

The main function of the present invention is to provide a vertebral fracture reduction device having improved functionality that also allows the compressive force to be exerted, at least partially, on the fractured vertebra (s).

In the context of this function, an object of the present invention is to provide a device for reducing vertebral fractures which is of reduced transverse size compared to devices of the known type.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a device for reducing vertebral fractures which makes it possible to modify the flexibility of the connection between the fixing screws so as to <B> at least partially compress the vertebra concerned by the fracture. Another object of the present invention, again, is to provide a device for reducing vertebral fractures which is a simple attachment to the vertebrae of the patient.

Another goal, which is not the last, of the present invention is to provide a device for reducing vertebral fractures which is of great reliability, of a relatively easy realization and costs of <B> to </ B> competitive.

This function, as well as these and other objects which will appear better later, is achieved by vertebral fracture reduction device comprising at least one pair of shackles intended for <B> to be attached to healthy vertebrae, upstream and downstream of the fractured vertebrae, the shaft-shaped connecting elements being provided for connecting at least the two hooking elements to each other, said device being characterized by the fact that each of the attachment elements has a location intended to receive a cylindrical element adapted to receive at least one of the shaft-shaped elements connecting at least two hanging elements between them.

Other features and advantages of the invention will become more apparent in the description of the embodiments chosen, but not exclusive, of the fixing device according to the present invention, illustrated as an example but not in the accompanying drawings, where: <B>: </ B> <B> - </ B> the figure is an exploded perspective view of the fastening device according to the present invention, in accordance with B / B one of its embodiments, FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the fixing device of FIG. 1, illustrated in an operating situation, <B> - <B> 3 </ B> a perspective view of a second embodiment of a portion of the device according to the present invention, and <B> - </ B> Figure 4 a perspective view of a third embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to the above-mentioned figures, the vertebral fracture reduction device according to the present invention comprises fasteners intended to be attached to healthy vertebrae of the patient. In particular, the fixing means can be constituted, according to a first embodiment of the invention, a screw-tap <B> 1 </ B> intended <B> to </ B> be inserted into a hole defined in a healthy vertebra. The device according to the invention therefore provides at least one pair of screws fixed upstream and downstream of the vertebra fractured so as to put the fractured vertebra in compression.

 screw tap <B> 1 </ B> comprises a housing 2 defined by a hollow in which is housed a 'cylindrical element <B> 3 </ B> which is maintained in the slot 2 a locking nut 4 provided of a collar <B> 5 </ B> which is intended <B> to </ B> to bear against the cylindrical element <B> 3, </ B> thus preventing it from going out. The nut 4 may comprise a washer (not shown) pivoting relative to this nut and which is fastened.

The cylindrical element <B> 3 </ B> has <B> at </ B> its ends a pair of collars <B> 6 </ B> and <B> 7 </ B> that prevent the cylindrical element <B> 3 </ B> out of housing 2 of the screw-tap <B> 1. </ B>

In a first embodiment, the cylindrical element <B> 3 </ B> comprises at least one notch <B> 8 </ B> which extends at least partially along its lateral surface, in parallel <B> to its axis and whose function is to allow the cylindrical element <B> 3 </ B> to be floating.

In the embodiment shown in Figure <B> 1 </ B> and Figure 2, this notch <B> 8 </ B> extends from one <B> end to </ B> the other of the cylindrical element <B> 3, </ B> also concerning the collars <B> 6 </ B> and <B> 7. </ B> The cylindrical element <B> 3 </ B> comprises internally a slot <B> 9 </ B> able to receive at least one shaft-shaped element <B> 10, </ B> and preferably a pair of shaft-shaped elements <B> 10, </ B> as shown in figure <B> 1 </ B> and in Figure 2 or a group of three shaft-shaped elements <B> 10 </ B> as is shown in Figure <B> 3. </ B>

The notch <B> 8 </ B> also allows the shaft-shaped elements <B> 10 </ B> to be locked when the locknut 4 is tightened.

In the case of Figure <B> 3 </ B> housing <B> 9 </ B> is of substantially triangular shape the shaft-shaped elements <B> 10 </ B> are inserted into this housing. In this case it <B> y </ B> has three notches <B> 8 </ B> which extend only partially along the lateral surface of the cylindrical element <B> 3, </ B> in parallel <B> to </ B> the axis of the cylindrical element.

fracture reduction device according to the invention allows to connect between two screw-taps <B> 1 </ B> by the shaft-shaped elements <B> 10 </ B> are inserted in the cylindrical elements <B > 3 </ B> which are each housed in slot 2 of the respective <B> 1 </ B> screwdriver.

connection between the two screw-taps <B> 1, </ B> provided by the shaft-shaped elements <B> 10, </ B> proves to be much more flexible than the currently used connection between screw-taps , by virtue of the fact that it is possible to choose the number of stem-shaped elements <B> 10 </ B> to interconnect the screw-taps <B> 1 </ B> and thus to modify the flexibility of the link.

The fact that the connection is not completely rigid as is the case in known fracture fracture devices, makes it possible to apply the compressive force not only to the vertebrae on which the screw-taps <B> are directly fixed. 1 </ B> but also on the intermediate vertebrae and therefore on the fractured vertebrae, precisely because of the flexibility conferred by the presence of several rod-shaped elements <B> 10. </ B>

In practice, it has been found that the device for reducing vertebral fractures according to the invention fully fulfills the role that has been fixed to it since it makes it possible to transmit at least partially the compressive force exerted by the <B> * </ B> taps connected together the shaft-shaped elements, also vertebrae in which the screws are not directly screwed, by virtue of the flexibility of connection between the two screws which are screwed upstream and downstream of the fractured vertebra.

The device thus conceived is capable of numerous modifications and variants which all fall within the scope of the concept of the invention; furthermore, all the components may be replaced by other technically equivalent elements.

Thus, for example, as illustrated in FIG. 4, the fastening elements may be constituted by a hook <B> 15 </ B> which makes it possible to hold <B> at </ B> a healthy vertebra without have to screw a screw into the vertebra.

The top portion of the <B> 15 </ B> hook has, together with the <B> 1 fixing screw, <4> a locknut 4 and a <B> 5 </ B> collar intended for <B > to </ B> stand against the cylindrical element <B> 3, </ B> preventing it from coming out.

In practice, the materials used, <B> to </ B> provided that they are compatible with the specific use, as well as the dimensions, vary according to the needs and state of the art.
