Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE RE-BAR DEVICES
(FR) BROCHES IMPLANTABLES
Abstract:
(EN) Implanting re-bar devices (30) and methods for their use are provided. The subject re-bar devices (30) are characterized by comprising a planar surface (32) having at least one protuberance (34) that has a cross-sectional profile that is substantially continuous. The radius of curvature at any point on the cross-sectional profile is between about 0.1 mm and 10 mm. The subject implanting devices (30) are particularly suited for use in conjunction with bone structural augmentation materials, such as calcium phosphate cements. The subject re-bar devices (30) find use in a variety of orthopaedic and related applications, including inter-fragmentary fixation, fastening soft tissue to bone, or holding plates or nails to bone and the like.
(FR) Broches (30) à implanter et procédés d'utilisation. Ces broches (30) sont caractérisées par une surface (32) planaire présentant au moins une protubérance (34) dont le profil transversal est sensiblement continu. Le rayon de courbure est compris entre 0,1 mm et 10 mm en tous points de ce profil. Les broches (30) à implanter sont particulièrement adaptées à l'utilisation conjuguée avec des matériaux d'augmentation de la structure osseuse tels que les ciments de phosphate de calcium. Ces broches (30) sont utilisables dans diverses applications orthopédiques et voisines, notamment la contention interfragmentaire, la fixation des tissus mous à l'os ou le maintien de plaques ou de clous sur un os, etc.
