Title (EN) IMPLANT FOR OSTEOSYNTHESIS
(FR) IMPLANT POUR OSTEOSYNTHESE
Abstract:
(EN) The implant for osteosynthesis according to the invention comprises a plate-like device (21) connectable with a bone (2) with at least two clearance holes (28) and screws (22) with a head (27) for fastening said device (21) rigidly to said bone (2), whereby the contact surface (23) of said device (21) to said bone (2) is reduced to the level necessary only for initially locking said screws (22) to said device (21) at the time of insertion. It allows operative treatment of bone fractures with minimal vascular damage to the treated bone.
(FR) L'implant pour ostéosynthèse décrit comprend un dispositif en forme de plaque (21), qui peut être relié à un os (2) par au moins deux trous de dégagement (28) et deux vis (22) pourvues d'une tête (27) servant à fixer ledit dispositif (21) à l'os (2) de façon rigide, de sorte que la surface de contact (23) entre le dispositif (21) et l'os (2) est réduite au niveau minimum nécessaire pour permettre le blocage initial des vis (22) par rapport au dispositif (21) au moment de l'introduction. Un tel implant permet le traitement efficace de fractures osseuses avec un minimum de dommages vasculaires à l'os traité.
