Title
(EN) REPLACEMENT LIGAMENT GRAFT PASSER AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE D'INTRODUCTION D'UN GREFFON DE LIGAMENT DE REMPLACEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A graft passer includes a protective tube or sheath (10) for surrounding the replacement ligament (12). Therefore, a femoral interference screw (66) can be inserted through a tibial tunnel (50) with the graft passer (10) and replacement ligament (12) in place in the tunnel (50). By inserting the femoral interference screw (66) through the tibial tunnel (50), the present invention advantageously aligns a longitudinal axis of the femoral interference screw (66) with a longitudinal axis of the femoral tunnel (62) and femoral bone plug (14) located therein to secure the femoral bone plug (14) along its entire length uniformly within the femoral tunnel (62). This reduces the likelihood of divergence of the interference screw (66) in the femoral tunnel (62) and improves fixation of the femoral bone plug (14) inside the femoral tunnel (62).
(FR)
Dispositif d'introduction de greffon comprenant un tube ou gaine (10) protecteur destiné à entourer le ligament (12) de remplacement. En conséquence, on peut insérer une vis (66) de serrage du fémur à travers une cavité (50) du tibia alors que le dispositif (10) d'introduction de greffon et le ligament (12) de remplacement sont en position dans la cavité tibiale (50). Grâce à la présente invention, en insérant ladite vis (66) dans la cavité (50) du tibia, on peut aligner de manière avantageuse un axe longitudinal de cette vis (66) avec un axe longitudinal de la cavité (62) du fémur et de la broche (14) de celui-ci située dans cette cavité afin de fixer la broche uniformément sur toute sa longueur à l'intérieur de la cavité (62) du fémur. En procédant de la sorte, on réduit ainsi la possibilité de divergence de la vis (66) dans la cavité (62) du fémur et on améliore la fixation de la broche (14) à l'intérieur de cette cavité (62).
