Title
(EN) A CLIP FOR COCHLEA ELECTRODE LEAD FIXATION AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME
(FR) ELEMENT DE SERRAGE POUR LA FIXATION D'UN CONDUCTEUR D'ELECTRODE DANS LE LIMAÇON DE L'OREILLE
Abstract
(EN)
A prosthesis device for aiding a person having a hearing loss typically includes an external component (10) for picking up and relaying sounds to an implanted component (12). The implanted component (12) includes a lead (38) terminating in an electrode (52). The lead (38) extends into the middle ear (50) with the electrode (52) being inserted into the cochlea (54). In order to insure that the electrode (52) is not withdrawn inadvertently, the lead (38) is secured within the middle ear by a rigid clip (62). The clip (62) has a mounting staple (64) for mounting the clip (62) on a bony bar (41) of the mastoid cavity (40), such as the incus bar (41), and a hook (66) for securing the lead (38).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif formant prothèse pour aider une personne présentant une baisse auditive. Ce dispositif comprend un composant externe (10) pour capter les sons et les renvoyer à un composant implanté (12). Ce composant implanté (12) comporte un conducteur (38) se terminant par une électrode (52). Ce conducteur (38) s'étend dans l'oreille moyenne (50), l'électrode (52) étant insérée dans le limaçon osseux (54). Pour éviter que l'électrode (52) ne soit retirée par inadvertance de l'oreille, le conducteur (38) est fixé dans l'oreille moyenne par un élément de serrage rigide (62). Cet élément de serrage (62) comporte une agrafe de fixation (64) pour supporter l'élément de serrage (62) sur un organe osseux (41) de l'antre mastoïdien (40), tel que l'enclume (41), et un crochet (66) pour fixer le conducteur (38).
