Title (EN) MULTI-MODE DISTRACTION SYSTEM FOR ANKLE ARTHROSCOPY
(FR) SYSTEME D'EXTENSION MULTIMODE POUR ARTHROSCOPIE DE LA CHEVILLE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and related method for ankle arthroscopy distraction includes both non-invasive external and invasive skeletal distractors which may be individually applied in a serial manner to provide ever increasing distraction forces as may be dictated by the required arthroscopic procedure. The angle of the distracted ankle may be selectively varied at anytime during any of the non-invasive or invasive distraction techniques without the need to halt the procedure, thereby obviating the need to reprep or to reposition or redrape the patient. An adjustable leg holder (12) allows a wide range of angular positioning of the lower leg and ankle during application of any of the distraction techniques.
(FR) Système et procédé connexe d'extension permettant de procéder à l'arthroscopie de la cheville comprenant à la fois des éléments d'extension externes non invasifs et des éléments d'extension des os invasifs. Ces éléments d'extension peuvent être appliqués séparément et successivement afin de fournir des forces d'extension toujours plus grandes en fonction des besoins de la procédure d'arthroscopie. L'angle d'extension de la cheville peut être modifié comme il est souhaitable au cours de toutes les techniques d'extension non invasives ou invasives sans qu'il soit nécessaire d'arrêter la procédure, ce qui permet d'éviter d'avoir à repréparer, repositionner ou réinstaller le patient. Un support de jambe réglable (12) offre un large éventail de positionnements angulaires de la jambe et de la cheville durant l'application de n'importe quelle technique d'extension.
