Title (EN) TRIAL FEMORAL PROSTHESIS FOR USE IN KNEE JOINT REPLACEMENT SURGERY
(FR) PROTHESE FEMORALE D'ESSAI POUR CHIRURGIE DE REMPLACEMENT DE L'ARTICULATION DU GENOU
Abstract:
(EN) A posterior stabilized femoral trial apparatus (10) for preparing a patient's femur to receive a posterior stabilized femoral prosthesis includes a trial body (11) with proximal and distal portions, the distal portion having an articulating surface (13) for articulating with apatient's tibial component. A module (50) fits the trial body (11) at the proximal surface, the module (50) being selected from a kit or group of modules of differing sizes and shapes. The module (50) includes a rasping surface (71) that extends longitudinally. The trial body (11) includes cutting surfaces at the posterior condyles. The module (50) is removably attachable to the trial body (11) at the proximal surface. During use, the apparatus of the present invention enables the surgeon to resect the patient's femur in a revision surgical case using the trial itself and more particularly the rasping surface and cutting surface thereon.
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à un appareil d'essai (10) fémoral à stabilisation postérieure conçu pour préparer le fémur d'un patient à recevoir une prothèse fémorale à stabilisation postérieure. Ledit appareil comporte un corps d'essai (11) doté de parties proximale et distale, ladite partie distale possédant une surface d'articulation (13) conçue pour s'articuler à un composant du tibia du patient. Un module (50) s'adapte au corps d'essai (11) au niveau de la surface proximale, ledit module (50) étant sélectionné parmi un ensemble ou groupe de modules de formes et tailles diverses. Ce module (50) comporte une surface râpeuse (71) à extension longitudinale. Le corps d'essai (11) comporte des surfaces de coupe au niveau des condyles postérieurs. Le module (50) peut être attaché de manière libérable au corps d'essai (11) au niveau de la surface proximale. En cours d'utilisation, l'appareil de la présente invention permet au chirurgien de pratiquer une résection sur le fémur du patient dans un cas de reprise chirurgicale au moyen dudit appareil d'essai et plus particulièrement de la surface râpeuse et de la surface coupante présentes à la surface dudit appareil.
