Title (EN) A SPINAL IMPLANT DEVICE HAVING A SINGLE CENTRAL ROD AND PLOW AND/OR CLAW HOOKS
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'IMPLANTATION SPINAL A TIGE CENTRALE UNIQUE ET A CROCHETS EN FORME DE SOC ET/OU GRIFFE
Abstract:
(EN) A hook and rod apparatus for fixation to the central posterior axis of the spine includes hood elements (110a) (130b) which are mounted beneath the arched portion of the lamina. In a first plow-shaped (110a) variation, the blade portion (115a) of the hook is an arched surface which seats under the arch surface of the lamina. In a second claw-shaped variation (130b), the blade portion (136b) (137b) includes a bifurcated conformation having a pair of offset flat extending members which are angled relative to one another so as to seat under the angled portions of the lamina which are lateral to the arched center of the lamina. The rod coupling features of the hooks (122b) may be poly-axial by virtue of separate coupling elements which may be mounted to the blade portion, for example, on a semi-spherical head portion (201) thereof.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un appareil à crochets et à tige destiné à se fixer sur l'axe postérieur central de la colonne vertébrale et qui comprend des crochets (110a) (130b) qui sont fixés sous la partie arquée de la lame vertébrale. Dans la première version en forme de soc (110a), la partie lame (115a) du crochet est une surface arquée qui se place sous la surface arquée de la lame vertébrale. Dans la seconde version en forme de griffe (130b), la partie lame (136b)(137b) a une forme dichotomique comportant une paire d'éléments allongés, plats, décalés qui forment un angle l'un par rapport à l'autre de façon à se placer sous les parties formant un angle de la lame vertébrale et qui sont latérales par rapport à la partie centrale arquée de la lame. Les éléments d'accouplement de la tige des crochets (122b) peuvent être poly-axiaux grâce aux éléments d'accouplement séparés qui peuvent être montés sur la partie lame, par exemple, sur une partie tête semi-sphérique (201) de celle-ci.
