Title (EN) LONGITUDINALLY ADJUSTABLE BONE PLATES AND METHOD FOR USE THEREOF
(FR) PLAQUES DE FIXATION SUR LES OS A LONGUEUR REGLABLE ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION DE CES PLAQUES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a bone plate having at least two and up to ten rimmed eyelets for receiving anchoring bone screws in a modified ball-and-socket joint. The eyelets are longitudinally aligned and joined to neighboring eyelets by curvilinear, bendable ribs extending between pairs of eyelets. The ribs are of a longer length than the distance between the external surfaces of adjacent rings which allows the longitudinal spacing of the rings to be increased or decreased by bending the ribs.
(FR) L'invention a pour objet une plaque de fixation sur les os possédant des oeillets à rebord, deux au minimum et dix au maximum, qui vont recevoir des vis d'ancrage pour os dans un joint à boulet modifié. Les oeillets sont alignés longitudinalement et reliés aux oeillets voisins par des arêtes courbes et pliables qui s'étendent entre deux oeillets. La longueur des arêtes est supérieure à la distance entre les surfaces externes d'anneaux adjacents, ce qui permet d'augmenter ou de réduire l'espace longitudinal entre les anneaux en pliant les arêtes.
