Title (EN) DEVICE FOR FIXING A PROSTHESIS TO A BONE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FIXATION D'UNE PROTHESE A UN OS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device (11) for fixing a prosthesis to a bone (24) has a first member (12) adapted for connecting to the prosthesis and has a second member (13) adapted for anchoring the device (11) in the bone (24). At least a substantial part of the second member (13) is made of a shape memory material which is capable of changing its shape between a first and a second state as a result of an appropriate temperature range. The second member (13) consists of a plurality of discrete wall members (18) having each one end (19) integral with said first member (12) and another, free end (20). In the said first state the wall member (18) is defined together a shape resembling that of a prismatic or cylindrical tube, and in said second shape, the free ends (20) of the wall members (18) become more distanced from one another, whereby the fixation device (11) becomes anchored in a bone (24).
(FR)Un dispositif (11) de fixation d'une prothèse à un os (24) présente un premier élément (12) adapté pour être relié à la prothèse, ainsi qu'un second élément (13) adapté pour encrer le dispositif (11) dans l'os (24). Au moins une partie substantielle du second élément (13) est en matériau à mémoire de forme, lequel est capable de changer sa forme entre un premier et un second état variant en fonction d'une plage de températures appropriée. Le second élément (13) se compose d'une pluralité de parois (18) discrètes dotées chacune d'une extrémité (19) solidaire dudit premier élément (12), et d'une autre extrémité libre (20). Dans le premier état, la paroi (18) est définie par une forme ressemblant à celle d'un tube prismatique ou cylindrique, et dans ladite seconde forme, les extrémités libres (20) des parois (18) deviennent plus distantes les unes des autres, de sorte que le dispositif de fixation (11) est encré dans l'os (24).
