Title (EN) ARTIFICIAL LIGAMENTS
(FR) LIGAMENTS ARTIFICIELS
Abstract:
(EN) An artificial ligament (10) has a bundle of coextensive elongate elements (11) held at their opposite ends in a mutual one-to-one relationship with the relative disposition of the individual elements at one end of the bundle corresponding generally with that at the other end, each element otherwise extending between its ends substantially freely of other elements of the bundle. The elements are suitably held by individual threading through respective perforations of grill members (13) to pass into securement in associated tubes (14). Preferably the bundle has a sheath, wrapping, distinctively coloured element (11a) or other feature to indicate visually the relative rotational disposition of the bundle between its ends.
(FR) Un ligament artificiel (10) est pourvu d'un faisceau d'éléments allongés coextensifs (11) retenus à leurs extrémités opposées en une relation réciproque d'un à un, la disposition relative des éléments individuels à une extrémité du faisceau correspondant généralement à celle des éléments à l'autre extrémité, et chaque élément s'étendant entre ses deux extrémités pratiquement sans contact avec les autres éléments du faisceau. Les éléments sont retenus de manière appropriée en étant individuellement enfilés dans des perforations respectives d'éléments en grille (13) et passant ensuite dans des tubes solidaires (14) où ils sont assujettis. Le faisceau comporte de préférence une gaine, une enveloppe, un élément d'une couleur distinctive (11a) ou tout autre détail indiquant visuellement la disposition de rotation relative du faisceau entre ses extrémités.
