Title (EN) INTERNAL BONE FRACTURE FIXATOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FIXATION POUR FRACTURE OSSEUSE INTERNE
Abstract:
(EN) A supracondylar compression fixator (28) for fixing fractures of a condyle (26) includes an elongate plate portion (40) and a head portion (44) extending from the plate portion (40). The elongate plate portion (40) has a length and a width and defines apertures (60) extending through the plate portion (40) along the length of the plate portion (40) for receiving bone screws (30) to fasten the fixator to a shaft of femur (24) having the fractured condyle (26). The head portion (44) includes a barrel portion (48) and a supporting portion (50). The barrel portion (48) extends from the plate portion (40) and supports a barrel (46) extending perpendicular from the barrel portion (48). The barrel (46) has a generally cylindrical inner surface configured for slidably receiving an end of both keyed and non-keyed lag screws (32). The cylindrical inner surface further defines at least one keyway (108) along a length of the barrel (46) for receiving a key of a keyed lag screw to prevent rotation of the keyed lag screw and for also allowing rotation of a non-keyed lag screw. The supporting portion (50) extends from the barrel portion (48) away from the plate portion (40). The supporting portion (50) defines at least one aperture (98) circumjacent to the barrel of the barrel portion for receiving bone screws to fasten the fixator to a portion of the condyle.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de fixation (28) de compression supracondylienne pour fixer les fractures d'un condyle (26). Ce dispositif comprend une partie formant plaque allongée (40) et une partie de tête (44) s'étendant à partir de la partie formant plaque (40). Cette dernière partie présente une longueur et une largeur, et définit des ouvertures (60) s'étendant à travers la partie formant plaque (40), le long de cette dernière pour recevoir des vis (30) et fixer le dispositif de fixation au corps d'un fémur (24) dont le condyle (26) est fracturé. La partie de tête (44) comprend une partie formant douille (48) et une partie de support (50). La partie formant douille (48) s'étend à partir de la partie formant plaque (40) et supporte une douille (46) s'étendant perpendiculairement à partir de la partie formant douille (48). La douille (46) présente une surface interne généralement cylindrique configurée pour recevoir, par coulissement, une extrémité de tire-fonds (32) clavetés et non clavetés, pour empêcher la rotation du tire-fond claveté et pour permettre la rotation du tire-fond non claveté. La partie de support (50) s'étend à partir de la partie formant douille (48) en s'éloignant de la partie de plaque (40). La partie de support (50) définit au moins une ouverture (98) adjacente à la partie formant douille pour recevoir les vis afin de fixer le dispositif de fixation à une partie du condyle.
