Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR CORRECTING SPINAL DEFORMITIES AND METHOD FOR USING
(FR) APPAREIL DE CORRECTION DES DEFORMATIONS SPINALES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus for use in the correction of spinal deformities, such as scoliosis, by posterior surgical procedures. It has been a problem to achieve secure hooking attachment to either laminae or transverse processes due to transverse and angular displacements of the individual vertebrae; and it has been a problem to provide adequate rotational forces for correction of rotational deformities. The present invention solves these problems by the use of a carrier (88) and a hook (90) that is attached to the carrier (88) by a spherical surface (102) of an attaching portion (100), and by the use of an angular pull carrier (182) that increases the rotational correcting force of a hook (90). The principle uses of the invention include orthesis and prosthesis.
(FR)Cet appareil est utilise pour corriger les deformations spinales, telle que la scoliose, par un traitement post chirurgical. L"obtention d"une fixation par crochet sure avec des procedes soit a lamines soit transversaux a presente des difficultes a cause des deplacements transversaux et angulaires des vertebres; l"obtention des forces de rotation adequates pour corriger les deformations de rotation a egalement souleve des problemes. Cet appareil resoud ces problemes en utilisant un dispositif porteur (88) et un crochet (90) qui est assujetti au porteur (88) par une surface spherique (102) d"une partie d"attache (100), et en utilisant un porteur de tirage angulaire (182) qui augmente la force de correction de rotation d"un crochet (90). Les principaux usages de l"invention comprennent l"orthese et la prothese.
